Dating Rumours of Munmun Dutta and Raj Anadkat who play the role of Babita Ji and Tappu in the television show ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ have been making rounds for a few days. The duo have been continuously trolled by the media and netizens since the news came out and now finally Munmun and Raj have broken their silence on the matter.
She took to her instagram and slammed the media and netizens in a long post. She wrote, “To the media and their zero credibility ‘journos’, who has given u the right to post ‘imaginary’ ‘made up’ articles in people’s name about their private life without their consent? R u liable to the damage that you cause to their lives with your reckless behaviour? You don’t stop at shoving your cameras on the face of a grieving woman who just lost her love or lost her son, in a funeral, just for your trps. You can stoop to any level to create sensational articles/headlines at the cost of someone’s dignity, but are you going to take responsibility for wrecking havoc in their lives?? If no then, you should be ashamed of yourself!!”
Her next post slammed the trolls, “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. Women 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 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 am ashamed of calling myself a daughter of India,”
Raj also took to his instagram and shared,” 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 channelise your creativity somewhere else it will be helpful to you. May God bless them with good sense.”
Munmun and Raj have an age gap of 9 years. As soon as this news came out, this did not go well with the viewers and audience and they reacted to the news by sharing memes and trolls based on them.
