Rajani has signed a new Marathi show due to which she chose to leave Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain. However, no official announcement has been made by the makers of the show or the actress.
Gulfam Kali was one of the most entertaining characters in the show who was mostly seen enticing the male characters like Happu Singh (Yogesh Tripathi), Vibhuti Narayan Mishra (Aasif Sheikh), Manmohan Tiwari (Rohitash Gaud), Prem Chaudhary (Vishwajeet Soni) and the neighbourhood vagabonds Teeka and Malkhan.
Fans have expressed their sorrow on Rajani’s social media handles. Users commented, “I miss you on the show… Why you left", while others commented how they only watched the show for her performance.
Before working on Bhabiji Ghar Par Hain, Rajani appeared in various movies and shows.

She will now be seen in a new Marathi show Shreemanta Gharchi Soon which will air on Sony Marathi.
Earlier actor Saumya Tandon had announced her exit from the show after she said she wanted to explore more opportunities. Tandon had been playing the role of Anita Mishra since the show’s inception in 2015.
She shot her last episode on August 21. In an interview to Bombay Times, Tandon said, “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.”
