Aasif told ETimes, “Nobody misses anyone. I am sorry nobody misses people who have left the show. People who have joined in now, the audience love them and appreciate them. I strongly feel that in Bhabi Ji no artist is indispensable. Our content is so strong that they watch the show for the substance. Artists are definitely important but nobody is indispensable. I will say the same thing about myself.” 

He also said that fans often message him saying they will stop watching the show if he leaves, but he is well aware that no such thing will happen. "Audience will watch the show and it doesn’t matter if I am there or not. People don’t watch the show for an artist they watch it for the content."

He added, that audience of Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain is very loyal and the team of the show often takes their comments seriously and works around them.

Shilpa was the first one to leave the show in 2016 and Shubhangi Atre Poorey has been playing the role of Angoori Bhabhi since then. In 2020, Saumya left the show and was replaced by Neha Pendse. Neha also quit the show in 2022 and Vidissha is currently essaying the role of Anita Bhabhi in Bhabhiji Ghar Par Hain.
