When you are so addicted to a television show or web series that you had followed every episode and binge-watched every season, you often start relating to the characters. For some, the show is all about their favourite character and when that actor quits the role, the show for them is ruined. Something similar happened with Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah fans when their favourite Dayaben a.k.a., Disha Vakani left the show. The show has been airing since then but the charm isn’t the same after Disha’s exit. TMKOC isn’t the same without Disha and the makers have been trying really hard to bring her back on the show.

It was in 2017 when Disha Vakani had embraced motherhood with the arrival of their little angel, Stuti Pandya and taken a sabbatical from the show, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. While her fans were hoping her to return back after maternity break, it got stretched so much that it has been three years now since she had left the show. Several speculations about her comeback and permanent exit from the show have been made since then, but nothing ever got confirmed. Fans are eagerly waiting for Disha’s comeback and this time, it seems like God has answered their prayers.
Though makers and Disha Vakani have been in talks for months about her comeback on the show, they haven’t come on any agreeable terms and conditions for both of them to work together again. If a Pinkvilla report is to be believed, a source revealed that the makers are planning to bring back Disha on the show before Navratri or maximum before Diwali. The source was quoted as saying, "Talks are on and off with Disha Vakani related to the comeback. However, the various demands made by her family have been acting as a hurdle for the longest time. However, the makers are now certain to plan a return of Dayaben even if Disha doesn't agree. The makers don't want to keep the audience separated from one of their favourite characters, Daya and what better festival for her to return than Navratri?"
Sometime back, a picture of Disha Vakani had gone viral on social media from a family function that she had attended with her daughter, Stuti Pandya. While Disha had looked mesmerising in a pink coloured saree, her little one looked adorable in a traditional outfit which she had covered with a blue-coloured jacket. A 2019 report by India Forums had revealed that Disha has still not decided about her comeback as she was unsure if she can balance her personal and professional life by shooting continuously and giving priority to her kid and family.

On June 7, 2018, Disha Vakani had shared the first glimpse of her darling daughter on her Instagram handle. Disha along her with her husband, Mayur, had taken their daughter to the Tirupati Balaji temple to seek blessings from God, wherein the little one can be seen swaddled in a pink blanket in her mommy’s arms. Disha had captioned the picture as, “May god bless our child and protects her from every obstacle.”
A few months back, when the reports of Disha Vakani’s permanent exit from the show, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, had emerged in the media, it had come as a dampener for her fans. According to a BollywoodLife report, when they had contacted the show’s producer, Asit Modi, he had texted them by saying, "Can't say about the authenticity of that news. I don't know." On Disha's permanent exit, he had continued, "Maybe true. I don't know about the final decision. My team is talking with her." To dig further, they had also contacted Disha's sister-in-law, Hemali Vakani, who had then retorted, "It is a too personal question to answer."
Soon after, a SpotboyE report had quoted an insider saying that Disha Vakani’s return on the show is dependent on certain conditions. Stating the same, the insider had shared that she can't be the 'My Way Or The Highway' types. The source had 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.
