Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma’s old Sodhi aka Gurucharan Singh shares he was approached for Bigg Boss twice

Famed for Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah since leaving the comedy show last year, Gurucharan Singh aka Sodhi has been out of the spotlight. Despite the fact that he is active on social media, his forthcoming projects are unknown. The actor stated in a recent interview that he was offered Salman Khan’s programme not once, but twice.

The actor has been a member of Asit Kumar Modi’s show since the beginning, and this is his second departure. He returned to the comedy programme the first time when the actor who replaced him was not well received by the audience, so he took the decision to return, but his plans to return are now in jeopardy.

Gurucharan Singh claimed in an interview with ETimes that he was asked twice to be a part of Bigg Boss. He was first approached to be on Karan Johar’s Bigg Boss OTT, then Salman Khan’s Bigg Boss 15. However, negotiations were in progress when the producers abruptly ceased calling him. Talking to the portal, Gurucharan Singh added, “They told me that they wanted me in Bigg Boss so when last time I came to Mumbai, I told them let’s meet and they were telling me that they want to meet in Film City. So I said let’s go to Film City no problem but then they said that they can’t meet at that time, they can meet later on. So I told them I’m going back then it is not possible I don’t know, they wanted me in Bigg Boss, whether it is true or not I don’t know.”

In a previous conversation, Gurucharan Singh opened up about leaving the comedy show, he told, “Well, my Dad had undergone surgery around the time I quit the show. There were a few other things I had to address and life went on. There were a few other reasons I quit but don’t want to talk about that. Whatever work I had done until Covid-19 hit, we worked together with love and affection as a team.”
