Saumya Tandon, who played the famous character of Anita bhabi in the sitcom Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! has quit the show in August 2020. She had portrayed the role of Anita Bhabi for over five years. Now, Nehha Pendse fill the shoes of Saumya Tandon in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! Many people have appreciated Nehha Pendse for her looks, while few people tried to troll her and said that her comic timing is not up to the mark. Nehha Pendse reacted to trolls and told,
“It’s already coming my way even when people haven’t seen my work as Anita. However, I understand that the criticism comes from an emotional space. People have been emotionally connected to Saumya, and it’s like letting a new person come in your inner group. Just like any other new relationship, this too would take some time. And I want to give that space to my audience to find that connectivity, and I know then, they will accept me wholeheartedly.”
Nehha Pendse also opened about how Saumya Tandon sent her a personal message and told she is the right choice for the character of Anita bhabi.
“I could not chat with her, however, it was really sweet of her to personally message me. She told me that I was the right choice, and that she is really happy I took up the show. Saumya added that she feels the character is in capable hands. It was really kind of her to do that and it really made everything special.”
On her comedy, Nehha Pendse added,
“I think every actor has to do hard work on every character. As for comedy, I don’t think it’s natural. However, this is a sitcom, where the situation is funny, I don’t need to do comedy. Honestly, I am not a Bharti Singh or Kapil Sharma who can crack jokes and make people laugh. A situational comedy set up works much better for me.”
Well, the way Nehha played the role of Sanjana Hiteshi in the comedy serial ‘May I Come In Madam?’ was outstanding and we feel she will do full justice with the role of Anita bhabi in Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain!
