For 8 years, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been engaging the audiences with Dayaben, a.k.a. Disha Vakani, becoming a household name with her character being the most loved one on the show. Disha went on maternity leave in September 2017, embraced motherhood with a beautiful baby girl in November 2017 and since then, she has been a hands-on mother. While there were rumours about her comeback in the show making headlines every now and then, but it seems unlikely now.

For the millions of ardent fans of the hit TV show, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, the reports of Disha quitting the show came as a dampener. According to a BollywoodLife report, when they contacted the show’s producer, Asit Modi, he texted them by saying, "Can't say about the authenticity of that news. I don't know." On Disha's exit, he continued, "Maybe true. I don't know about the final decision. My team is talking with her." To dig further, they contacted Disha's sister-in-law, Hemali Vakani, who retorted, "It is a too personal question to answer."
Now, as per a SpotboyE report, an insider told the media portal that Disha is welcome but only on certain conditions. Stating the same, the insider shared that she can't be the 'My Way Or The Highway' types. The source also revealed that the major differences between producer, Asit Modi and Disha Vakani were created by her husband, Mayur Pandya, who had started interacting with the production house (Neela Tele Films) on his wife's behalf.
Mayur feels that Modi is yet to pay Disha some amount. The insider stated, "Lekin Mayur saab nahin mante. I think he is a CA and only he knows Maths. But those numbers are only his, not ours." Secondly, Mayur wants his wife, Disha to work only for 15 days per month, that too only 4 hours per day. The source shared that these conditions were unacceptable as her maternity leave is over and if she wants to come back, she should be in full spirit.
The insider asserted, "This kind of interference is difficult to understand. Our show is going well, TRPs without Daya Ben have not been affected. Every other actor is working hard on his/her track and we are converging well. If Disha wants to return to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, we will have to see if her comeback will justify the show. Plus, it will have to be on terms and conditions agreeable to Disha and Modi both." (Also Read: Bobby Deol Shares A Picture With His Son, Aryaman Deol On His 50th Birthday And He Is So Handsome)
Disha Vakani married a Chartered Accountant named Mayur Pandya in an intimate ceremony on November 24, 2015. After a low-key wedding, the couple had a star-studded reception for their industry friends. Asit Modi has earlier talked about Disha’s sabbatical and shared in an interview, "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 Chashma."
The entire team of the show was ready to adjust with Disha and one of the sources from the sets had said, "We are in touch with Disha to start the shoot. But she has yet not given a nod. Considering her baby is very small, production is willing to be understanding in terms of timing and schedule like we were in the final months of her pregnancy. But she wants to focus more on her personal commitments at the moment. But we are trying very hard to bring her back on the sets asap."
