When asked to shed light on how actors were mistreated on the set and people used to misbehave with them, Priya said, "This has never happened to me."
On this, Malav said, "How can they misbehave with you, you were the director's wife!"
When asked if she was treated the same when she was not dating Malav, to which Priya said, "Yes, I was never treated badly even when I was not dating Malav. Initially, for two years, no one knew that we were together. Jatin calls me 'Didi'. He is like family to us. Even Sohil is like a family to us."
She added, "Neither Sohil nor Jatin and for that matter, not even Asit bhai has misbehaved with me. He never spoke rudely with me. Of course, he has avoided answering me about my role in the show if I am a part of the show or not. He has never been bad to me even before Malav was not there in my life."
Malav also agreed to the same.
Further, when asked about Sohel and Jatin misbehaving with the cast members, Malav said, "All this never happened in front of me. It either happens on the call or in the office. It is such a big team. Dates issues are likely to happen. They are not intentional."
When Priya was asked if she was asked to sign a bond just like other actors, she said, "I was a bit lucky in this as I did not sign any contract. I worked on other projects while shooting for Taarak."
She narrated a story behind this.
"I was doing Taarak Mehta from day one. I was also doing two shows simultaneously when I signed this show. I was told that I'll only have to shoot for 7 to 10 days in the show. There was a Ganpati sequence and I had done a considerable amount of work. I had then made my point clear that I will work on other projects as well. But Asit bhai wanted me to come for the Ganpati shoot. However, I also understood his problem. Malav will also agree as festival sequences are very hectic. But I couldn't manage this show with the other two shows. I told them that I will only be able to come at a particular time. We had an argument and then I decided that I will not do the show. I left the show and for three months I wasn't there."
She continued, "I was again called after three months. I went there with my terms and conditions and did not sign any exclusive contract. He happily agreed and worked on many other projects. So, I never faced any issues."Lastly, talking about her character and journey, "I felt that my track would have been better. In this area, I feel I faced injustice. I don't have any complaints against Asit bhai or the production."
