Actress Disha Wakani, who plays Dayaben in TV's popular comedy show 'Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah', will no longer return to the show. Makers have confirmed that they are now looking for a new Dayaben for the show. However, actor Dilip Joshi, who plays Dayaben's husband Jethalal, wants her to return to the show.
In a recent interview, Dilip Joshi said, "Two years ago, when Disha announced that she was going on maternity leave, we were very apprehensive about how the show would run because the character of Jethalal and Daya was very important for the show. And it's not that an actor can't be replaced. There have been cases like this before. But replacement should be better."
Actor Dilip further said, "Disha has worked brilliantly on this character for 10 years, which is not a short period at all, and I think when a woman becomes a mother, her priorities change drastically, though she is also an artist in the past. An artist can't stay away from the set for a long time and therefore, I'm praying that Disha will come back to the show soon."
