Disha Vakani has reportedly given birth to a baby girl earlier today. Disha rose to fame for her role as Dayaben in the popular television show, Tarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma. Reports indicate that the little bundle of joy arrived nearly two weeks before the delivery date which was December 20. Disha married a Mumbai based CA, Mayur Padia, two years ago in quite a lavish ceremony. The actress had a grand baby shower at her residence in the city.  Disha looked gorgeous in the ceremony, wearing a pink sari with heavy golden jewelry and blue orchids. Present at the event were Dilip Joshi, Samay Shah, Munmun Dutta and of course reel son Taapu aka Bhavya Gandhi.

Previously, rumours of Disha quitting the show had been doing the rounds. However, given her huge popularity, the makers decided to not go ahead with a replacement. It seems the team had been shooting for multiple episodes within a day, to run in her absence. Moreover, the team also took a lot of closeup pics of the actress in order to use it as shots in the future.  Moreover, there were reports, which stated that the team would shoot at her residence if it ever came to that. That just goes to show how much the show depends on her.

Tarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma is one of the highest ranking shows in the TRP charts. It is one of the longest running scripted show on Indian television. The show is based on the column Duniya Ne Undha Chashma written by columnist and journalist Taarak Mehta, for Gujarati weekly magazine Chitralekha. Mehta passed away on March 1, 2017. He was a recipient of one of the highest civilian awards in the country.
