Muni and Sejal create havoc
The Gujarati floorboards have been in a tizzy since the past week over Muni Jha and his wife Sejal Shah's antics, which resulted them in being ousted from Chaal Zindagi Jeevi Laye. Directed by Vipul Vithalani, the play was forced to rope in Rajesh Soni (the writer) and Pallavi Pathak (the actress wife of producer Divyesh Pathak) for a show! Last heard: The Jha couple and their demands have made the producer now look for suitable replacements. And you thought there was no action on the staid floorboards.
