Soon after Shailesh Lodha's revelations about why he left the show made rounds on social media, Jennifer Mistry Bansiwal took to her IG handle and shared a screengrab of the same. The actress also penned a few words to extend her support to the actor. Sharing the screengrab of Shailesh's comment, Jennifer asked her fans if a senior actor like, Shailesh had to listen to such mean comments on TMKOC, then what she and other juniors had to listen to and bear on the set. Jennifer's caption can be read as:
"Agar Shailesh ji jaise senior actor ko aisa sunna padta tha to zara sochiye hum jaiso ne kya kya suno hoga aur sehan kiya hoga".
In an interview with Lallantop, Shailesh Lodha revealed why he decided to opt out of the popular sitcom, TMKOC. The actor shared that he was once invited as a guest celebrity in another show, and he happily took part in it, but Asit Kumarr Modi didn't like it.

Talking to ETimes, Jennifer revealed why she left the show despite working there for 15 years. The actress accused Asit of sexual harassment, for which she even filed a police complaint against him.
Further, in several other interviews, the actress opened up about her experience of working in TMKOC. The actress shared that it was not a fun ride for her as it was a male-chauvinistic place to work in.
