Speculation about actor Disha Vakani aka Dayaben’s return to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been rife since she left the show in 2017. It has also been reported that the makers were looking for someone to replace Vakani. The audience and the cast of the show are excited to see when they will make a decision on this. Actor Sunayana Fozdar, who recently replaced actor Neha Mehta as Anjali Mehta on the SAB TV show, recently said in an interview: “Hum khud bhi janna chahte hai (we want to know too)” on the subject.
Sunayana shared that only Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer Asit Kumarr Modi knows when Dayaben will be back, telling koimoi.com that the sitcom isn’t just about one person.
She said, “The show is about everyone. It’s not just about a character, the best part of the show is about that. If a character is still loved and missed, but socialmediagossips are still watching the show and it’s going well, it means it’s a team effort. Nobody can take out all of the credit, koi ek lead nahi hai. Sabke Apne favorites hai, jiski wajah se show abhi tak chal raha hai. (The show doesn’t have a single lead. Everyone has their own favorites, which is why the show is still on air.) “
Disha Vakani has explored the role of Daya from the start of Daily Soap. She was on hiatus after giving birth to a baby girl in November 2017. The creators and audience have been waiting for her to come back on the show after the maternity leave.
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is based on the column Duniye Ne Oondha Chashma written by columnist and journalist Taarak Mehta who died in 2017. Actor Shailesh Lodha plays a character inspired by the late columnist who keeps the name Taarak Mehta.
