Divyanka Tripathi to be next Dayaben in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma?
New Delhi : Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma has been waiting to see its Dayaben back since couple of years now. And now some reports suggest that she will return soon on the show but Divyanka Tripathi is likely to replace Disha Vakani for the character.
In an interview with ETimes, Divyanka Tripathi has cleared the news and called such reports baseless and non-factual.
“It’s a fabulous show with a great fan following but I don’t think I’ll be keen on doing it. I am looking for a fresh concept and new challenge.”
It’s been over three years when people had last seen Disha Vakani performing the character of Dayaben on the show. She had gone to an indefinite maternity leave in 2017. Earlier in May this year, show’s producer Asit Modi mentioned that the possibility of Disha’s return is going on for years now and that the team is still waiting for her to come back.
In an interview, he had also mentioned that if Disha expresses her desire to quit the show then they will bring in a new lady for the character.
“I feel I should become Dayaben now! The question of her return has been going on for many years now. We are still waiting for her to come back and if she expresses her desire to quit, the show will go on with a new Daya,” Asit Modi had said.
Meanwhile, Divyanka Tripathi has recently returned from Cape Town after completing the shooting for Rohit Shetty's Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 11.
