Disha Vakani aka Dayaben Not Returning to ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’?

Popular sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah‘s most loved character Dayaben will no longer be a part of the show.

Actor Disha Vakani, who delivered a baby girl on November 30, 2017, was missing from the show for a long time owing to her pregnancy and new responsibilities as a mother.

Fans had long been waiting for her comeback but now it seems they will never get to see her on TMKOC, again.

Daya reportedly laid some conditions for her return which were not met by the producers of the show.

An Indian news outlet quoted a source as saying:

“Daya had laid some conditions with her timings and availability along with monetary concerns to makers, who in return said that they would love to have her back, but cannot comply with her conditions.

Discussions went on and on for months, but now, the final outcome is that both parties have mutually decided to end their association”.

She had reportedly asked for a hike in her fee.

The actress, who used to charge somewhere around Rs 1.25 lakh her episode, wanted her per episode fee to be increased to Rs 1.50 lakh.

The producer of the show had then 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 her return yet and there is no official confirmation on Disha quitting Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.”
