However, there has been a buzz that after Dayaben, Jethalal aka Dilip Joshi may now bid his goodbyes to the show leaving the fans worried.

These rumours started doing round after, Dilip during an interview with Times of India opened up if he wished to quit the show, to which he had said, "My show is a comedy show and it's fun being a part of it. So till the time I enjoy it, I will do it. The day I feel that I am not enjoying it anymore, I will move on."
