Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is without any doubt one of the most popular sitcoms on Indian TV. The show which has been running for more than a decade has some extremely well-known characters like Dayaben and Taarak Bhai. However, both the characters have left the show now. While Disha Vakani, who played Dayaben hasn't been a part of TMKOC since 2015, Shailesh Lodha aka Taarak Mehta quit the show after being associated with it for almost 14 years.
Disha Vakani aka Dayaben to be replaced
Previously it was said that Disha Vakani would return to the show and reprise her role as Dayaben. However, of late, there have been talks about replacing her with a new actor. Producer Asit Modi had recently confirmed that Disha will not be entering the show as Dayaben and they will be introducing a new face for the role. No names have surfaced so far.
No clarity over Shailesh Lodha's character
Last month in May, it was reported that Shailesh Lodha is quitting TMKOC as he is not able to explore other opportunities coming his way because of the show and he turned down many of them. But he didn't want to waste his time any further and say 'no' to any new offer coming his way. Soon after, he announced being a part of a show called 'Waah Bhai Waah'. He also began shooting for it. While there have been talks about bringing a replacement for Dayaben's character, so far nothing has been said about Taarak Mehta's character.
