Disha Vakani, aka Dayaben from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma, will not return to the series to reprise her role.
Asit Modi, the producer of the popular TV series, revealed that Vakani would not return for her beloved character Dayaben, and the auditions for the same are on the move. The news comes after a shared promotional video teased the comeback of Dayaben.

The official Instagram account of the show posted various short videos showing Dayaben’s brother Sundar promising Jethalal that he would get Daya in 2 days. But another post shared on the page reveals a change in their plans and that her arrival would be a day late. Fans of the show have been flooding the comment section, demanding Vakani to come back as Dayaben.

When asked about the future of the character in the series, Modi said, “Dayaben, the character, is all set to return, but it’s not Disha Vakani. Auditions for Disha’s replacement are on, and there will be a new actress coming in as Dayaben soon. The reason why it took us so long to replace Disha is that after getting married, Disha did work for some time.”
Furthermore, he said that Vakani is like a family to the show and its cast and was optimistic that she would return for the show.

“She then took a break and had a baby and continued her break to raise her child. She never quit the show. But then there, the pandemic struck. There were too many restrictions on shooting during that time. Even though we were taking all the necessary precautions, Disha said she was scared to return to shooting.”

Vakani had been playing a role in the series since its beginning in 2008. The show has been going on without Dayaben’s character since 2017 when the actress took a break after giving birth to her first child. Recently, she welcomed her second child.
