Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah surprised its fans this week by announcing that Dayaben will soon return to Gokuldham. While fans were expecting Disha Vakani to return as Daya, producer Asit Kumarr Modi clarified that Disha is not returning to the show. Rather a new actress will replace her as Daya and the auditions have already started.
It should be noted that Disha Vakani took a maternity break five years ago and since then has not returned to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Recently she gave birth to her second child and hence the possibility of her returning ended completely.
That is the reason the makers have started taking auditions for the new Dayaben. Speculations are adrift as to who will replace Disha Vakani in the iconic character. A video of Kundali Bhagya fame actress Shraddha Arya that went viral recently hinted that most probably she has been chosen to play Daya in TMKOC.
The video clip shared on the Instagram account by Shraddha shows the famous television actress speaking the famous dialogue “ Toh Kya Irada Hai” in typical Daya style which has fans speculating that she is the one who will replace Disha Vakani as Daya. However, there has been no such confirmation either from Shraddha or the makers of the famous comedy show.
Currently the sitcom is going through a crisis as one of its lead actors Shailesh Lodha who plays the role of Mehta Saab has reportedly left the show amid rift rumours with lead star Dilip Joshi aka Jethalal. Over the last few years, many other actors including Neha Mehta, Gurucharan Singh, Bhavya Gandhi, and more have left the show for various reasons.
Despite the fact that these actors became very famous due to TMKOC, the show has continued even after they left it. Asit Kumarr Modi has made sure that the show must go on and has replaced most of the actors who left the show.
