Actors and directors of ‘Maharashtrachi Hasikjatra’ had said that Omkar’s departure did not make much of a difference to the programme. He responded that the program will not be closed because of anyone leaving. Now, at the trailer launch event of the movie ‘Sarla Ek Koti’, Omkar has told the reason for leaving the show. In an interview given to ABP Vahini, he said, ‘All set was acceptable. It all started well but as sir said I had to stop again for next two films. I would have to take vacations again and take care of them again and again. Along with that I had health problems which I still have. The vacation I took for that is forever.’
Omkar further said, ‘After that, what I did in ‘Foo Bai Foo’, I wanted to do a folk skit. What was not before has become good. I told the producers that I want to do it. They also said that it is ok, let us do this schedule. Even now everything is going well and everything is fine for me. I’m definitely learning from all this.’ Finally, after several months, Omkar revealed the reason for his exit to the audience. But even today the audience of the comedy fair is missing Omkar for sure.
