You might know the gorgeous Munmun Dutta as Babita Ji from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Ever since the start of the show, the actress has been essaying the character of the bubbly Babita Ji. She has gained a lot of popularity from the show as well. However, after a recent controversy of the actress, rumours started doing rounds that she might have or probably will, quit TMKOC.
A few weeks ago, Actress Munmun Dutta had found herself in the middle of a controversy for speaking a casteist slur. In one of her YouTube videos, Munmun uttered the word ‘Bhangi’ when she said she applied a little makeup as she didn’t want to look like a Bhangi. This didn’t settle well with the netizens and soon hashtags like #ArrestMunmunDutta started trending on Twitter. On realizing her mistake, she immediately took down the video and apologized for the same.
However, the incident did impact her a lot. Since then, the actress wasn’t seen much on her show, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Rumours started doing rounds that maybe Munmun has quit the show due to all the trolling she had to face. But now, the makers have given a statement clarifying the same.

They also said, “Munmun Dutta continues to remain part of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah as Babita Ji. Any rumours about her quitting the show are baseless and incorrect.” The producers also stated that Munmun needed some time off after the controversy and even the production house understood the same and thus she wasn’t seen.
