Munmun Dutta is the crush of India, known for her sultry looks and comic timing. She has gained great stardom due to the role of Babita Iyer in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. For the fans of this mega-hit show, she is an indispensable part of the show's experience.
We all love the flirtatious chemistry between Jethalal and Babita characters. It is one of the most popular running gags in the show and has been played for laughs. However, the reality of Munmun Dutta is more serious than one can guess. She has come out as a victim of sexual harassment since her teenage days.
One of the assaulters did the disgusting deed of putting his hands under her pants. The assault she has faced by men has led to some complexes in her. There have been rumors floating around that she doesn't like to be touched and has had a serious issue with it. Nobody has confirmed this rumor; it wouldn't be entirely shocking if it turns out to be true.
Munmun is an extreme animal lover and has a soft spot for these adorable creatures. She regularly raises her voice against animal cruelty and has taken special permission from Mumbai police to feed the street animals during the pandemic. Another completely sweet thing she does is carry with herself a first aid medical kit at all times for animals. She regularly supports and promotes animal shelters that are doing the gods' work.
Munmun Dutta might always be seen on the TV in the iconic set of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. In reality, she is a big traveler at heart, often vacationing both in India and abroad. One of her recent vacations turned out to be more than Dutta expected.
During her climb to Mount Kilimanjaro, she had extreme claustrophobia that led to her having to return. Munmun had to be treated by one of the medical doctors present on-site and was thankfully back to her normal self. This experience has not deterred Dutta as she is still interested in going on more trips and adventures.
Before Munmun Dutta was a huge household name in India, she was just a regularly struggling actress. During that time, she starred in two high-profile advertisements with none other than Shah Rukh Khan. These ads are extremely zany and also quite flirtatious. You can go and search for them on Youtube. Enjoy!
Munmun Dutta's long stint in one role for more than 13 years has raised many questions in the minds of the fans. Is she too typecast as the role of Babita and can't act in other roles. If the show ends one day, can we see her in any other roles, or is this the end of the road for her? When asked whether she feels bored of the show at times, her answer is yes but also sees the larger picture.
Looking at the latest salary figure, she gets about 60k per episode, which is 2.4-3 lacs per week. Munmun has been doing this show for 12 years and 3000 episodes so that you can do the math in your head. Considering her stardom, she will not have any problems post the show.
Munmun Dutta is the sweetheart of television, and most people want to remember her that way. However, if we've learned anything in recent times, our heroes all have flaws and dark sides (no pun intended) to them. Munmun Dutta has come under hot water with more than 5 FIRs filed on her for using casteist slang.
It was truly heartbreaking news, and her justification of the language barrier is hard to believe. Then there are the other rumors regarding her refusing to work with Tanuj Mahashabde due to his dark skin.
Hopefully, Munmun learned about her problematic behavior and became a better person. Instead of getting canceled, she should support and raise awareness against discrimination.
Munmun Dutta is like a family member for the fans of the Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. She has made us laugh and blush with her incredible beauty. We have a lot of love and admiration for this actress. Babita Ji will always be close to our hearts.
