One question that is going on in every Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah viewers mind is, “When will Disha Vakani aka Dayaben return?” Yes, Disha Vakani, who played Jethalal’s (Dilip Joshi) onscreen wife Daya, has been missing from TMKOC for the longest times. From rumours of her return to speculations of her quitting the show permanently, a lot has been said.
Now, in a chat with Times of India, producer of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Asit Kumarr Modi, has finally broken his silence of Disha Vakani aka Dayaben’s return. He said that just like the audience, he is also ‘missing’ Daya on TMKOC. Asit Modi said that he understands that the audience is ‘tired’ waiting for Daya bhabhi on TMKOC.
He understands their sentiments, and that they want to see her back on the screens. Not only the viewers but personally Asit Modi also wants to see Dayaben on TMKOC again. However, things are not going on the right track owing to the pandemic. Asit ji also requested TMKOC fans to support him for two or three months more.
“From an audience perspective if I see I also want Daya Bhabhi on the show, but during this pandemic, few things are not possible and the audience will have to support me for the next 2-3 months. I request them to understand our situation,” Asit Modi told the TOI.

Disha Vakani aka Dayaben took a maternity break from the show back in 2017. Ever since then, the actress is busy with her personal life and daughter. Fans have been eagerly waiting for her comeback. And now with the least hopes, they want the makers to replace her if things don’t materialize.
A recent media report said that Disha Vakani has permanently quit TMKOC for alleged pay issues. However, neither Disha nor the makers have addressed these media reports yet.
