TV actress Disha Vakani, who played the much-loved character of ‘Dayaben’ in SAB TV’s long-running sitcom ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’, took a maternity break from the show after giving birth to a baby girl in November 2017. After waiting for a long time, the makers have now decided to replace her. According to latest reports, TV actress Vibhoutee Sharma is in talks to replace Disha Vakan as new ‘Dayaben’.
Reports also claimed that, she recently gave a mock audition for the part and ‘Taarak Mehta…’ makers have liked her performance. The actress, who has played character roles in shows like ‘Bade Acche Lagte Hain’ & ‘Humne Li Hai Shapath’, has now reacted on the same.
Vibhoutee Sharma has quashed the reports of replacing Disha Vakani and told TOI that, “I don’t know where these rumors are coming from. I am not replacing Disha Vakani in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, neither have I given any mock test. I am not interested in doing TV shows. I have currently taken a break from doing TV shows. This is really funny. I keep doing ads and was never interested in doing regular daily soaps. I have shot for a film which is in the pipeline.”
Seems like, the viewers have to wait a little longer for Dayaben’s return in Gokuldham Society. Actress Ami Trivedi was also said to be approached to play the iconic part.
On a related note, ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’ is set to complete 11 years later this month and is still one of the top-rated shows on small-screen.
