There is no denying the fact that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC) is one of the most watched TV comedy shows. Its popularity can be ascertained with the fact that it’s among the longest running serials on Indian television.
Dayaben, wife of Jethalal Champaklal Gada, is a lead character of the show but actress Disha Vakani who portrays this role has been on leave for almost 2 years now. The makers have waited for quite long as they wanted Disha Vakani to end her maternity leave and join the cast but it seems that the audiences will get to see a new Dayaben.
Some time ago, Disha was given a month’s time by the makers to return on the show but she didn’t respond. In fact, it has been heard that her husband is demanding 200 percent hike in her salary and has also put a condition that she will work for 4-5 hours in a day and that too, only 15 days in a month.
The makers are in search for an actress to replace Disha and while there were rumours that Rashami Desai and Giaa Manek are getting considered for the role, the latest buzz is that Ami Trivedi has been finalised for playing Dayaben on screen.
However, when producer Asit Kumarr Modi was contacted and asked to comment on this matter, he denied finalising Ami Trivedi or any other actress so far and said they are still searching for the suitable person.
When TOI got in touch with the Papad Pol actress Ami, she said that she is not even contacted by the makers, leave aside getting finalised for the show. However, her family members and relatives think she should take up the role as they are of the opinion that she suits the character perfectly.
Well, it simply means that the search is still is on.
Who do you think will be perfect for the character of Dayaben? Let us know your choice.
