There were rumors of Shefali Zariwala to play the new Anita bhabi. But, the rumors were baseless as Shefali Zariwala clarified that she was not even approached for the show. Initially, the makers Binaifer and Sanjay Kohli approached Nehha Pendse to play the new Anita bhabi. Nehha Pendse was the first choice to fill Saumya Tandon shoes. However, things did not materialize then and makers started hunting other actresses. Now, four months later, they have reconnected and finalized the deal.
Nehha was last seen in Bigg Boss 12. However, she could not make it to the finale, Nehha Pendse has previously worked with producers Binaifer Kohli and Sanjay Kohli in the show ‘May I Come In Madam?’. The show was aired on the channel Life OK. Nehha Pendse played the role of Sanjana Hiteshi.
Nehha Pendse will start the shooting of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain! soon and play Anita bhabi opposite Aasif Sheikh playing Vibhuti Narayan Mishra, Anita’s husband.
