Rumours are abuzz that Disha Vakani, who plays the role of Daya Ben in SAB TV’s ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’

The actress who has been on maternity leave since giving birth in November last year, Vakani has been unable to juggle between her newborn baby and the popular sitcom.

However, Asit Kumar Modi, producer of the show told Times Of India, “The shooting conditions are tough and since Disha’s baby is still very young she needs her. We haven’t discussed about her return yet and there is no official confirmation on Disha quitting Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.”

While rumours of Giaa Manek replacing Vakani have been doing the rounds, a source was cited in Mid-Day saying, “The makers don’t want to replace Disha Vakani. She is an integral part of the show. They will concentrate on the other characters in her absence.”
