Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer says ‘show will go on’ if Disha Vakani does not want to return as Dayaben
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer Asit Modi announced a big decision on Disha Vakani’s leave said that they are ‘still waiting’ for Disha Vakani’s return as Dayaben but will cast a new actress if she wants to quit the show.
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the most loved family show in India. It’s been over three years that Disha Vakani was last seen as Dayaben. She is on parental or maternity leave since 2017.
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer Asit Modi talked about the absence of Ghanashyam Nayak, who plays Natwarlal Prabhashankar Undhaiwala aka Natu kaka, from recent episodes. He has also shed light on the marriage track of Popatlal played by Shyam Pathak and the return of Disha Vakani as Dayaben.
Earlier last month, Asit Modi talked about the same in another interview and said that ‘no one is bigger than the show’. He said “From an audience perspective if I see I also want Daya Bhabhi on the show, but during this pandemic, there are few things that are not possible and the audience will have to support me for the next 2-3 months. I request them to understand our situation,” he added.
Speaking about the possibility of Disha’s return, He further added, “I feel I should become Dayaben now! The question of her return has been going on for many years now. We are still waiting for her to come back and if she expresses her desire to quit, the show will go on with a new Daya. But, right now I don’t feel Daya’s return or Popatlal’s wedding is important. In the pandemic, there are more serious issues and I feel all those matters can wait.”
