From the past few months, there have been several news regarding Disha Vakani aka Dayaben’s return in the show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.
The actress has been missing from the show since the birth of her daughter. Ardent fans of ‘Taarak Mehta’ are eagerly waiting for her comeback since quite some time now. But, she hasn’t returned to the show.
Although the makers of the show have confirmed that they are looking for a replacement.
Dilip Joshi aka Jethalal is praying for Disha Vakani’s return
Now, during his recent interview Dilip Joshi, who plays Jetha Lal husband of Daya Ben on the show, said that he’s hoping that she will returns to Taarak soon.
While talking to Bombay Times, he said, Two years ago, when Disha announced that she was going on maternity leave, we were apprehensive about how the show will go on because Jethalal and Daya are crucial to it. It is not that an actor can’t be replaced. In the past, too, there have been such cases. For example, when Ronit Roy replaced Amar Upadhyay in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, many had wondered if the show would go on. But the fact is, the show goes on. Having said that, Kyunki… was a family drama and this is a comedy show. It is important that the actor, who replaces Disha, has good comic timing and fits the character.”
He further added, “Disha has worked on the character for 10 years, which is not a short period. I understand that when a woman becomes a mother, her priorities change, but at the end of the day, she is also an artiste. An artiste cannot stay away for long from the set, and so, I am praying that Disha will soon want to come back to the show. She has worked hard to establish the character and should not let it go waste.”
Earlier a month ago, producer Asit Modi in an interview had said, “If she returns, we are more than happy to have her back, but she needs to make a decision soon. If she cannot return due to her family issues, we will have to replace her, because the show must go on.”
