Nehha had previously worked with the makers, Binaifer and Sanjay, in May I Come In Madam, which ended in 2007. She received much love and appreciation for her character Sanjana Hiteshi. Later, she participated in Bigg Boss 12.

Saumya earlier spoke on her exit with TOI and said, “Well, 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. The desire to grow as an artiste was intense – I want to do projects where there is scope for growth. I had a beautiful journey on ‘Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai!’. However, I have played this character for five years now, and I don’t see myself doing it for another five years.”

Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hai features Shubhangi Atre, Rohitashv Gour, and Aasif Sheikh in the pivotal roles.
