Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah has been one show that has gained a massive fan following over the years. The characters have stayed in the hearts of people and have them invested in it.  So, when Disha Vakani a.k.a Dayaben quit the show in late 2017, the show almost came to standstill. The actress delivered a child in 2017 and has been on maternity leave since. The makers continued the show but couldn’t find a replacement for Disha’s character.

Recently, rumours were afloat about the makers zeroing in on Bade Achhe Lagte Hain actress, Vibhoutee Sharma. However, seems like they were just rumours after all, as the actress took to her Instagram to officially refute all the rumours.

Here is her post:


The actress denied the rumours and said she was not doing the show. She even put out a story on her Instagram stating the same.

Here’s what she said:

I’m not into serials. I respect all serial actors though. It’s amazing what they are doing. All these rumours about me replacing the lead actress in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah are really getting into my head now. If I’ll ever have to do a TV serial, it will be according to my age and liking.

Well, now that she has cleared the rumours, we wonder what the makers are planning for Dayaben‘s character.
