Remember Jheel Mehta aka old Sonu from popular sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah? The girl who played the daughter of Atmaram Bhide (Mandar Chandwadkar) and Madhavi Bhide (Sonalika Joshi) had opted out of the show for her SSC exams. And now, this little girl is all grown up and ready to explore the other side of her interest.
The pretty girl was just 9 nine years old when she had joined the show. However, after playing the successful character of Sonu for almost four years; Jheel decided to take a break and concentrate on her studies.
Jheel is now 18 years old! And like every teenager girl, Jheel has lots of memories to cherish in this transition from teen to a full-blown adult. In an interview with Dailybhaskar.com, Jheel says, “Every single moment attached to the show will remain very close to me. Taarak Mehta…have given me a lot in terms of fame and money. But, somewhere down the line, I wanted to do something else apart from acting. I was 14, when I decided to quit the show and study further. I scored 93.33% in my board exams and I was pretty happy with my decision.”
Talking more about her love for studies, Jheel says, “When I scored 93.33% in my ICSE board exams, people assumed that I will take up science and become a doctor. Honestly, I was interested in choosing medical, but then I took up commerce. I am currently doing BBA from NMMIS Universtiy, Mumbai and I wish to do MBA in abroad mostly. I haven’t decided yet on whether I will take finance or marketing. ”
