Saumya, 35, has been a part of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain ever since it started five years back.
Television actress Saumya Tandon, who is best known for her role in comedy show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai, confirmed in an interview to Bombay Times that she has quit the show and will shoot her last episode for the show on Friday.
Saumya, 35, has been a part of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain ever since it started five years back. She has been playing the lead role of Anita Mishra in the TV series that also features Aasif Sheikh, Rohitash Gaud and Shubhangi Atre. Putting a stop to all speculations about her leaving the show, the actress told BT: "Yes, I have decided to not renew my contract further.
Tomorrow (August 21) is my last day of shoot. Finally, people can stop speculating whether I will continue on the show or not" and then explained her decision: "You can say that it's an impractical decision to quit a stable job, that too, in an established show. But I realised that being employed and earning a regular income was not exciting enough anymore."
"I want to do projects where there is scope for growth as an artiste. Having said that, it does not mean that Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai did not contribute to my growth. I had a beautiful journey on the show. However, I have played this character for five years now and I don't see myself doing it for another five years," she added.
