"Many people think I planned my disappearance for publicity, but that’s not true. If I wanted publicity, I could have given interviews to talk about the pending dues for my work in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. I could have used social media to do that, but I didn’t," he said.

Gurucharan added that he didn't give any media interviews even after returning home. However, he decided to speak up now as he wanted to clarify certain things that people are saying about him.
