Popular Tv show, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer Asit Modi has spoken about the non-appearance of Ghanashyam Nayak, who plays the role Natu kaka, from recent episodes. Asit has also revealed the marriage angle of Popatlal (played by Shyam Pathak) and the homecoming of Disha Vakani as Dayaben.
Talking to a leading daily, the producer said—“Natu kaka is a senior citizen and has recovered from his illness but due to the pandemic, I feel he should stay at home and follow safety protocols. We will surely get him back on the show when the situation gets better. Similarly, Popatlal’s marriage is important but it will also have to wait in the current circumstances.”
Talking about the probability of Disha’s return, Asit said, “I feel I should become Dayaben now! The question of her return has been going on for many years now. We are still waiting for her to come back and if she expresses her desire to quit, the show will go on with a new Daya. But, right now I don’t feel Daya’s return or Popatlal’s wedding is important. In the pandemic, there are more serious issues and I feel all those matters can wait.”
For the unversed, Disha has been on maternity leave since 2017.
