The most adorable character of Daya ben is missing from the comedy show’ Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma’ for a long time. Disha Vakani has been playing the role since the programme began.
But she didn’t return back on the show post her maternity leave in 2017. Since then, the audience is not able to see Dayaben and according to the format of the show, she has gone to her mother’s place.
It’s been a long period but she can’t be seen anywhere in the show. According to the producer, Asit Kumar Modi, since the time she left the show, he has not been able to contact her directly.
Last time, when the producer enquired about her whether she is willing to join back the show, Dayaben along with her husband, Mayur Padia made weird demands and even asked for a 100 per cent hike in her pay. This was done in January this year and after that Modi has not been able to get in touch with her.
According to the sources, Modi is very upset and cannot wait any more and says it’s been a long time that Dayaben is missing from the show and we will have to replace her with a new actress if she doesn’t return.
The team has sent her a 30 days notice which says that if she is willing to join back the show, she can do it within 30 days, as her contract has not ended yet. However, if she fails to do so, she will no longer be part of the show.
Modi also remarked that her husband put weird demands in front of him which involved that she can work only for 15 days a month and that too only for 4 hours. Now, the producer has made it clear that if she doesn’t return back in 30 days, they will replace her.
Though it will be very disheartening for the audience if she makes a decision of not teaming up with the cast back, still we would have to accept whatever it goes like.
