Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah Producer may replace Dayaben: Here's why!

SAB TV's popular sitcom ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah' has been in news for all the sad reasons lately. There have been reports of the show's very popular Dayaben a.k.a Disha Vakani not being a part of the show because of various reasons right from her husband's intervention to her demand for a raised pay and lesser working hours.

However, the makers had vehemently denied reports of Disha being replaced and had claimed that the window for negotiation is still open. But now; in a recent interview, the show's producer Asit Modi has said they might consider replacing Disha in case the actress does not come to a conclusion about returning to the show.

Further elaborating on the same; Asit said," I don't have any fallout with the actress. Disha has not been working with us for more than a year now. It's natural for any mother to want to spend time with her child, but now that her daughter is one year old, we are hoping that Disha will return to the show. While my viewers are questioning the long absence of Dayaben, the ratings have not been affected. We have given her enough time to decide, too."

Mr. Modi further said," Contrary to reports, there are no money issues, because my team is in touch with her and any matter can be solved, amicably. I am still waiting for her to return, but if she does not announce her decision in some time, I will have to replace her. I believe that no actor is bigger than the show and everyone has to work professionally towards making it a success."

For the uninitiated While the actress began making certain demands like an increased pay hike from 1.25 lakhs per episode to Rs 1.50 lakhs, a shorter shoot shift, i.e. the shift to be from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm only and that she would shoot for only 15 days per month; it is believed that her final exit happened because it was becoming more and more difficult for the makers to negotiate directly with Disha since her husband has constantly been interfering in the matter.

Also taking you guy's back in time; Disha Vakani married a Chartered Accountant named Mayur Pandya in an intimate ceremony on November 24, 2015, following which she went on a maternity break maternity leave in October 2017 and gave birth to a baby girl on November 30, 2017.
