Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah: Ami Tridevi to replace Disha Vakani as Daya Ben? Here’s the truth

TV actress Disha Vakani, who played the role of Dayaben in the popular TV show, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, went on a maternity break since a long time now. While fans are still awaiting her return, makers recently announced that they are looking for a fresh face to rope in as Daya Ben and that the auditions for the same are already in process. Now, fresh reports suggest that Ami Tridevi has been approached to play the role of Daya Ben in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Ami Tridevi is most known for her roles of Kittu in Kituu Sab Janti Hai and Kokila in popular comedy sitcom Papad Pol.

However, Ami has denied being approached for the same. "No, I have not been approached, but my friends have been telling me that I should take up the role and would suit the character. I have not been offered the role, nor the makers have tried to reach me out," she was quoted as saying to Times of India.

Commenting on whether she would take up the role of Dayaben if offered, the actress said: "It is a huge responsibility and would be difficult for any artist to fill into the big boots of Disha Vakani. I am sure any actor who replaces her would have to face bricks and stones at the beginning because Disha has been associated with Taarak Mehta... for 10 long years and the audience love her. I can't comment on your question till the time I am approached the show. Once the makers offer me the role, I will be in a better position to talk."

Initial reports suggested that Disha Vakani had hiked her fees to mark her comeback in the show. She was apparently charging Rs 1.5 lakh per episode. And she had also put forth a condition to work only for 15 days a month, and between 11 am to 6 pm. Her character is one of the most loved ones on the show and it's quite iconic. 

The actress had shared the first picture of her baby girl, Stuti on social media. She gave birth to her daughter on November 30, 2017. In the pic, her little princess has worn a blue top and she is wrapped in a pink blanket.

Well, with this latest development, it looks like Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah fans have to wait longer for new Daya Ben to enter the show.
