Disha Vakani has been a household name for years, with her playing the role of the popular Daya Ben in Neela Telefilms’ Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah so effectively for years.
Disha has been out of action for a while now, and the Producer Asit Kumarr Modi has been gracious enough to carry on the show without her, but with the hope that the show’s Daya will ultimately get back in action.
Recently, there were reports of Dishaa having been given a notice period of 30 days within which she had to return to the show. There were also rumours of Mayur Vakani too leaving the show.
In a bid to talk about the issue, Producer Asit Kumarr Modi has this to say about the 30 days notice to Disha, “We have been very cooperative from the beginning. Since her daughter’s birth, we have been waiting patiently, giving her space as new mother. But eventually, a show has to go on. Nobody can wait indefinitely. Character of Daya has to come back in Gokuldham society. If Disha is unable to come back because of her personal issues, then we will be left with no option but to replace her. Regarding the said notice, there has been no ultimatum issued. However, show must go on with all the principal characters. Its time she took a decision and informed us.”
Disha who is married to Mayur Padia, was blessed with a baby girl on 30 November 2017. She opted for a maternity break from September 2017 with an intention of getting back on the show once she settles well into her pahse of motherhood.
Well, we really hope Disha comes out in the open and declares that she will be back as Daya again….
Our fingers are crossed.
