Social media is flooded with memes about the relation of famous comedy sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah stars Munmun Dutta and Raj Andakat and finally, both the actors have raised their voice and have cleared all the rumours.
Taking to her Instagram handle, Munmun wrote, “To the media and their zero credibility ‘journos’, who has given you the right to post ‘Imaginary’ ‘Made Up” articles in people’s name about their private life without their consent? R u liable for the damage that you cause to their lives with your reckless behaviour? You don’t stop at showing your cameras on the face of the grieving woman who has just lost her love or lost her son, in a funeral, just for your traps. You can stoop to any level to create sensational articles/headlines at the cost of someone’s dignity, but R u going to take responsibility for wreaking havoc in their lives? ? If no then you should be ashamed of yourselves”.
Munmum also wrote a note to the general public and criticized the mockery done to her on a large scale. She penned down a note which read, “To the general public, I had far better expectations from you. But the filth that you have showered in the comments section, even from the so called ‘literate’ ones proves how regressive a society we are. Woman are constantly age-shamed, slut shamed, mom shamed, at the cost of your humour. Whether your humour drives someone to the edge of a mental breakdown or not, is never your concern. 13 years of entertaining people and it didn’t take 13 minutes for anyone of you to RIP my dignity apart. So next time if someone is clinically depressed or driven to take their own lives, pause and think whether it was your words that drove that person to the edge or not. Today I’m ashamed of calling myself a daughter of India’.
On the other hand, Raj also retorted to the rumours and said, “To everyone, who has been constantly writing about me, think of the repercussions that can happen in my life because of your ‘cooked up’ (false) stories and that too about my life without my consent. All the creative people out there please channelize your creativity somewhere else it will be helpful to you. May God bless them with good sense”.
