Munmun Dutta, famous for her role as Babita Iyer in the popular sitcom "Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah," is reportedly engaged to co-star Raj Anadkat, who plays Jethalal's son Tapu in the same series. A News 18 exclusive report suggests that the couple exchanged rings earlier this month, surrounded by their family members in Vadodara, Gujarat. Sources close to the couple also say that both families have embraced the relationship.


The source close to the actors informed that Munmun and Raj got engaged in a low-key ceremony outside Mumbai. “They have been dating ever since Raj joined Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah…Everyone on the sets knew about it. In fact, some people were certain that Munmun and Raj would get married eventually. Therefore, it is not shocking that they are engaged now,” the source added.


As per reports, Munmun and Raj have been in a relationship since Raj's entry into "Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah" in 2017, with their bond being an open secret among the show's cast members. The duo has historically kept their personal lives private, concentrating instead on their professional commitments. Their relationship first came to public attention in September 2021. Raj had announced his departure from Taarak Mehta in December 2022.

The news about Munmun Dutta and Raj Anadkat allegedly dating was first reported by Times of India in September 2021. The TOI report stated that each and every member of team ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah was aware of the duo’s relationship. However, Munmun had dismissed the report and put out a strong denial on her social media handle. “To the media and their zero credibility ‘journos’, who has given you the right to post ‘imaginary’ ‘made up’ articles in people’s name about their private life without their consent? Are you liable to the damage that you cause to their lives with your reckless behaviour? You don’t stop at shoving your cameras on the face of a grieving woman who just lost her love or lost her son, in a funeral, just for your TRPs. You can stoop to any level to create sensational articles…” she had written.
