Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one television show that has been running successfully since 2018. Earlier, producer Asit Kumarr Modi confirmed that Disha Vakani aka Daya Ben is being replaced. Now another actor will reportedly be leaving the show. Latest reports suggest that Atmaram Tukaram Bhide’s daughter, Sonu aka Nidhi Bhanushali is quitting the show.
It has been reported that Nidhi is leaving the show to focus on her studies and because she wants to take a break from acting. If reports turn out to be true then the makers will have to look for two replacements.
In an earlier interview with Times Of India, producer Asit Kumarr Modi confirmed about replacing Disha Vakani and said, “I will have to start looking for a new Dayaben. No one is bigger than the show. Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah will go on with a new face, because the family is incomplete without Dayaben”.
“So many working women in the country get pregnant, go on a maternity break, have babies and resume their jobs. Today, women continue to work even after having babies. We have given Disha leave, but we cannot wait forever. Having said that, replacing an actress is not an overnight process. The track has to be planned months in advance. Right now, we have started the initial process of auditioning for the character. We are still not sure what will happen in the future, but I would like to reiterate that the show must go on,” he added.
Disha was loved for her incredible performance on the show and her uniqueness. Her fans were eagerly waiting for the actor to return to the show but now it has been confirmed that she will no more be a part of the show.
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah went on air in 2008 and is still running successfully becoming one of the longest-running sitcoms on Indian television.
