Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, a sitcom with a colossal fan base, has been a household favourite since its inception in 2008. Despite facing challenges, the show's enduring popularity is evident in its commendable TRPs. 

However, the absence of Disha Vakani, who portrayed the iconic character Daya since 2015, has left fans eagerly anticipating her return. Asit Modi, the producer previously expressed efforts to bring Disha back. Yet, the prolonged absence has led to speculations about a potential replacement for Daya.

In the latest turn of events, news of Dayaben's return has surfaced. Sunderlal, a character in the show, has assured Jethalal of Daya's return during Diwali, sparking joy among the characters and the Gokuldham society members. Preparations are in full swing, with Jethalal eagerly anticipating Daya's return.

Despite the jubilation, a shadow of doubt looms over Dayaben's return. In a recent promo, Taarak Mehta expresses concern to Anjali, fearing that Jethalal's perpetual streak of misfortune may persist. The uncertainty surrounding Daya's return has created a buzz, with fans expressing scepticism.

The uncertainty has not gone well with fans, and many are questioning the authenticity of claims related to Daya's comeback. Some fans speculate that the show's makers might be playing a prank to boost TRPs, reminiscent of past instances. 

Disappointed viewers have even threatened to stop watching if Daya does not make a genuine return this time. Fans recall past instances where the makers teased Daya's return, only to disappoint with pranks. 

The latest promo has triggered scepticism, with viewers expressing reluctance to believe in Daya's return until concrete evidence is presented.

One user wrote, “Ye sab mil ke hamlogo ko bewakoof bana rahe hai.” Another commented, “Ab bohot hua nautanki..... It's time to boycott TMKCH.... they are playing with people's emotions.”

A third user said, “She is not going to come. The director is making a fool of the public. Like the way they are postponing the popatlal marriage.” A fourth user also echoed the same and wrote, “This is serious guys they are fooling the audience every year and again if they do so than stop supporting the show that play with emotions.”
