Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: Auditions Begin For New Daya Ben; Makers Don’t Want An Established Face
Disha Vakani aka Daya Ben from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been creating a lot of buzz since the time she went on her maternity break. The on and off news about actress returning to the show has been floating forever, but, on March 22, SpotboyE.com told you that the makers of the show have given the actress a 30-day ultimatum to resume the shoot, else they will have to replace her.

Interestingly, there was no reaction from Disha on this ultimatum, but she instead posted a throwback picture from her wedding, where she is seen with Taarak maker, Asit Modi, a few days after the 30-day ultimatum.

And now, SpotboyE.com has got another from the show. Well, we hear that, even though 30 days are not over yet, makers have started auditioning for Disha’s replacement. Looks like, with the actress not giving any concrete reply, makers are not left with much of an option but to start the hunt for a new Daya ben.

Not just this, SpotboyE.com also has it that the makers want a relatively new face for the role. They have instructed the casting team to not consider any established face, but list down new faces.

You may recall, at the Indian Telly Awards 2019, when we asked Asit Modi about replacing Disha Vakani, he had tried to dodge the question and replied saying, “IPL hain, elections hain, dekhte hain.” Watch the video below:

Incidentally, the next day after the awards nite, a chance call from a top source from the industry revealed to us what the current position of this issue is. The source had told us, "Bas, ab ho gaya. Modi waited ethically how much he and his cast-crew could. Now,  Modi says he will just give a concession period of a month, starting today. There has been absolutely no contact between the two parties ever since Dayaben's last day at shoot. Team Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has no problems if she wants to look after her baby but some of her demands that they would imply if she was to return, were just not easy to accept when her husband last has a word with us." Coming to the latest update, it looks like now the viewers will see a new Daya ben, after all.
