On the other hand, Disha Vakani’s brother, Mayur Vakani, who plays the role of ‘Sundar’ in the same show also reacted to the reports and stated:

“Aise bahut saare afwaayein aate rehte hain ismein koi sacchayi nahi hai. She is hale and hearty and nothing of this is true. Every day we get to hear baseless rumours about her but fans should not believe any of these."


Disha had once spoken about the difficulty of maintaining the peculiar tone of the character ‘Dayaben’ and how she has to put a lot of stress on her throat. Disha, who used to shoot for 11-12 hours a day also revealed that with God’s grace, even after so much pressure, there are no problems with her voice and throat.
