Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the iconic daily soaps for over a decade now. Alongside Jethalal, Babita Ji and Champaklal/Bapuji, Dayaben is one of the characters in the show that the audiences find iconic. Even though the famous role which was played by Disha Vakani is missing in the show for almost four years, fans are still hoping to see her in the series again. Meanwhile, according to a report on Pinkvilla, Hum Paanch fame Rakhi Vijan has been approached to play Dayaben.

Amid the news of Dayaben's comeback, a report of Disha's new replacement in the show is doing rounds among the fans.

According to an interview on ETimes, Asit Modi, the producer of the show, recently unveiled that Dayaben will surely return to the story. He further mentioned that it's not confirmed if Disha will be back to play the iconic character or not because as much as the makers want the actress back, they are simultaneously auditioning for the character as well.

However, as of now, there has been no official announcement about Rakhi's entry into Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah.

Rakhi is one of the most popular faces of the television industry for two decades, especially due to her comedy stints in shows like Hum Paanch, Hera Pheri and Professor Pyarelal among others. 

Even though Disha has been adored as Dayaben for several years, it has been too long since the audiences have seen the iconic character in the show. Rakhi may come as the fresh breath of air for the role and receive same love and praise from the fans.

Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, which also stars Dilip Joshi, Munmun Dutta, Amit Bhatt, Shailesh Lodha and Mandar Chandwadkar in major roles among others, is available to stream online on Sony LIV.
