Disha Vakani

For the past few days, there have been reports of Disha Vakani aka Dayaben returning to the popular TV show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Now, Dilip Joshi, who plays Jethalal Champaklal Gada, Dayaben’s husband in the show has reacted to the rumours. The actor was asked if he misses Dayaben and he said that they have been shooting for TMKOC without Disha Vakani for five years now.

The actor further added that only production house of the popular show can confirm if they are planning to bring Dayaben back.

Speaking with ETimes, Dilip said, “It has been five years since Disha has been on a break from the show. Now, whether she will come back or not, only the production house knows and I would not like to get into it. Also, I am happy that the viewers continue to shower the same love and attention that they used to when Daya was shooting.

For the uninitiated, it was recently revealed that Disha Vakani welcomed her second child, a baby boy. The good news was shared by her husband, businessman Mayur Padia and her brother, actor Mayur Vakani. As we know, Mayur plays Sundarlal in TMKOC.

Speaking with ETimes, Disha’s brother had said, “I am happy that I have become an uncle again. In 2017, Disha had her baby girl and now she has become a mother again, and I have become mama again. I am very happy.” Disha’s husband had said, “Disha is very busy with our newborn son.

In an earlier interview with ETimes, producer Asit Modi had shared his thoughts on Disha’s return to the show. He had said, “I don’t know yet if Disha Vakani will be back as Daya Ben. We still have a very good relation with Disha ji, we are like a family. But now she is married and has a kid and everyone gets busy with their own responsibilities. We all have our personal life, so I won’t be able to comment on that. Lekin joh bhi Disha Ben or Nisha Ben but you will surely get to Daya Ben and we as a team will try our best to give the same entertainment that we gave you before.
