Every now and then there are reports saying that she might return soon but that event has not taken place yet. However, a few days back another actress from the show Jennifer Mistry who is seen as Mrs. Sodhi hinted about her return. And now it seems that the good news is finally happening.

Talking about Disha's return, Jennifer earlier said, "I miss her a lot and even fans miss her a lot. But because I was in her shoes a few years ago I can totally relate to her situation. I understand right now for her, Stuti her daughter is of priority. I am sure she will be back soon. The good thing is we are in touch and whenever we miss each other we talk over the phone. We have to understand family is also important. She wanted to get married and start a family and when finally the moment has arrived we shouldn't disturb her. She's just enjoying her family life and we should let her be like that."
Meanwhile, actress Ambika Ranjankar aka Mrs Komal Hathi also spoke about Disha in her latest interview with ETimes and said, "Disha and I have done theatre together. We did a play which had a successful run of 350 shows. We also did another play in 2008. I share a great bonding with Disha and I am still in touch with her. We miss her a lot. We respect her personal decision. She is not just an artist, end of the day she is a human being and she has her commitments. We respect that decision."
