'TMKOC': Disha Vakani all set to return as Dayaben
In what would come as a relief for fans, popular actress Disha Vakani is all set to make a comeback as Dayaben on SAB TV series Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, confirmed the makers of the show. The 41-year-old actor had been missing from the limelight after she went on a maternity leave two years ago. However, the makers couldn't find a suitable replacement.
Disha's comeback can happen within a month
"We are positive that Disha will make a comeback on the show as Daya. It might take a month's time," the show's producer Asit Kumarr Modi told Times of India. "Time and again, we have been asking her to be back on the show. However, she wasn't ready, but now, she seems to have made up her mind to make a comeback," he confirmed.
"Disha and the production never had any negative conversation"
Further stating that both parties shared a happy relationship even during Disha's break, Modi commented, "Disha and the production house never had any negative conversations in the past." "We were always insisting on having her back on the show. We have tried to push the story for two years without Dayaben, but we definitely want her back on the show," he added.
Backstory: Disha opted for maternity leave in September, 2017
