As Rumours Of Disha Vakani Returning To TMKOC Heat Up Again, Asit Modi Steps Forward To Clear The Air

For the unversed, Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma (TMKOC) is a sitcom that has been airing for more than a decade now. The show is based on a society that contains people from different cultural backgrounds living together in harmony. Its cast contains veterans like Dilip Joshi, Amit Bhatt and Munumn Dutta. It airs on Sab TV at 8:30 PM. The show has been dominating the TRP ratings since it started to air, hence has stayed in the prime time slot for a decade


Arguably the most iconic character of the show Dayaben played by Disha Vakani is missed most by the audience. The actress took hiatus from TV as she wanted to focus more on her newborn child, husband and family. She left the show five years ago and the makers are yet to find a replacement. Rumours of her return heat up every now and then but eventually turn out to be false. To clear the air once and for all, the producer of the show Asit Modi has provided some clarifications.

In a recent press conference, Asit Modi said, “Daya bhabhi is a character audience is unable to forget. People feel its absence. Disha vakani i respect her…covid ke time I waited, I’m waiting even today and pray to God for her to return. But she has a family and has her responsibilities towards them. Like audience I am also waiting.”

He also indicated how important Disha Vakani is to the show and that they have or will do anything to get her back. However, they are holding auditions for the role as well. He clarified that they will search for someone to play the character side by side if Disha couldn’t return in the future. He further added that the show’s story will continue without the need for Dayaben’s character until they find a solution.

“Try to understand Disha’s point as well..she too had the hunger of doing this but after marriage, they have a separate life and responsibilities.” He said. Fans desperately want to see the iconic character return. For some fans, it has been way too long without Dayaben in the show and who say that the makers should have found someone to replace her a while ago. Meanwhile, some fans are of a different opinion saying that the makers did well by waiting for the original actress to return. The audience can expect the character to return in upcoming months to say the least.
