Disha Vakani, who is best known for portraying Daya Ben in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, has been missing from the show for quite some time now. The actress was blessed with a baby girl in November 2017 and she has been on a maternity break since then. Recently there were reports of the actress quitting the show, however, producer Asit Kumarr Modi clarified in January that her contract still hasn't been terminated.
"Contract has not been closed. Character of Daya bhabhi is still there and we have not taken any actor to replace her. As and when she wants to come, we will see at that time. If mutually beneficial to both, we shall work together again," he had said in a statement. But the recent reports suggest that Disha has been given the last 30 days to return to the show and if she does not report back within the said period, she will be replaced.
A source close to the development informed SpotBoye about the producer's decision, "Bas, ab ho gaya. Modi waited ethically how much he and his cast-crew could. Now, Modi says he will just give a concession period of a month, starting today. There has been absolutely no contact between the two parties ever since Dayaben's last day at shoot. Team Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has no problems if she wants to look after her baby but some of her demands that they would imply if she was to return, were just not easy to accept when her husband last has a word with us."
It said, “You are forgetting that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is a comedy daily serial, so they can’t bump off her character and plus they have shown that she has gone to her mother’s house. How long can Dayaben be shown to be staying in her maika?”
The source concluded, “Seems, Disha wanted to hanker for a bit of publicity in the media. So, she put a some throwback video. Toh dekhte hain kya hota hai. We will still welcome her warmly if she returns without unacceptable do’s and don’ts. Else we are going ahead with another actress after 30 days, max 35.”
Just in case Disha doesn't revert in 30 days, who do you think should replace her? Let us know in the comments section below.
