Disha Vakani, the actress from ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ on Sony SAB TV, has reportedly been given an ultimatum to return to the show days within 30 days.
Vakani has not been seen on the show since September 2017 due to maternity. She gave birth to a baby girl in November 2017. Recently, producer of the show, Asit Kumarr Modi had clarified that her contract had not been terminated. He said, “Contract has not been closed. Character of Daya bhabhi is still there and we have not taken any actor to replace her. As and when she wants to come, we will see at that time. If mutually beneficial to both, we shall work together again.”
However, it now seems that Vakani has been given 30 days to return to the show or she could be replaced, according to SpotBoye. A source said, “Bas, ab ho gaya. Modi waited ethically how much he and his cast-crew could. Now, Modi says he will just give a concession period of a month, starting today. There has been absolutely no contact between the two parties ever since Dayaben’s last day at shoot. Team Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has no problems if she wants to look after her baby but some of her demands that they would imply if she was to return, were just not easy to accept when her husband last has a word with us.”
It said, “You are forgetting that Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is a comedy daily serial, so they can’t bump off her character and plus they have shown that she has gone to her mother’s house. How long can Dayaben be shown to be staying in her maika?”
The source concluded, “Seems, Disha wanted to hanker for a bit of publicity in the media. So, she put a some throwback video. Toh dekhte hain kya hota hai. We will still welcome her warmly if she returns without unacceptable do’s and don’ts. Else we are going ahead with another actress after 30 days, max 35.”
