Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the longest running shows of the Indian television as its first episode was aired in 2008 and the serial is still running strong in the year 2021. However, fans of TMKOC are badly missing Dayaben, the character which was played by Disha Vakani who has not returned to the sets since 2017 when she took maternity leave.
It was believed that Disha would come back after the birth of her daughter and since then, a lot is being heard on this matter but it is still not clear whether Disha Vakani would return or not. However some time ago, rumours were doing rounds that Disha Vakani quit the show but no official announcement was made by the actress or the makers of the show. It is being said that Disha and her husband are putting some conditions in front of the makers for Disha’s return but the makers are finding it difficult to agree to those conditions.
The show is being directed by Malav Rajda and recently a fan of the show commented on one of his Instagram posts. The fan has asked him to bring new actress for the role of Dayaben as there is no use in waiting for so long. Here is what the fan wrote, “Plz new Daya ko lay aawo sir. Itna wait kar ke bhi koi fayda hoga kay aap hi socho. Bichare fans kabse wait kr rahe h Daya ke liye (Please bring a new Daya on the show sir. What is the benefit of waiting for so long? Poor fans have been waiting for so long).”
Malav Rajda responded soon but instead of giving a straight answer about Dayaben’s character, the director had some fun by giving a hilarious response. Rajda says that if he will make many demands, the makers will replace him with a new director. He adds that he has no authority to take decisions about the actors as he just directs the show and while concluding, he says that whatever happens, it happens for the best.
This is what Rajda said, “@shindepooja91 Mein zyada bolunga toh naya director le aayenge (if I ask for too much, they will get a new director)… It’s not in my hands at all… I just direct the show… Don’t n can’t take decisions regarding actors n lot of other things… But jo hota hai ache ke liye hota hai (whatever happens, happens for the best).”
Do you think that the makers should wait for Disha Vakani or find a new actress for the role of Dayaben as soon as possible? Let us know your views.
