Mumbai: Fans of popular sitcom Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah have been eagerly looking forward to seeing Daya Bhabhi aka Disha Vakani back on the show. The actress, who plays the adorable character, has been on maternity leave since November last year.
The latest about the actress is that she is expected to resume shooting for the show in a couple of months time. And this is good news for fans of the actress.
According to a report in TOI, the producer of TMKOC has said that talks with Disha are on, and she is likely to return to the show in the next few months.
Disha, who is married to Mayur Padia, is a popular theatre artiste in Gujarat. She has done plays like Kamal Patel v/s Dhamal Patel and Lali Lila. She has also done supporting roles in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Devdas and Ashutosh Gowariker's Jodhaa Akbar. Interestingly, both the films had Aishwarya Rai as the main lead. She has also been a part of Aamir Khan's Mangal Pandey: The Rising and Priyanka Chopra's Love Story 2050.
But Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (which began on July 28, 2008) made her a popular celebrity. The show is based on Duniya Ne Undha Chashma written by late columnist and journalist Taarak Mehta. She is paired with actor Dilip Joshi (who plays the protagonist Jethalal Champaklal Gada).
