It has been a while since Asit Kumarr Modi has been searching for a new Dayaben for his show, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Kajal Pisal has now revealed that she too was approached for the role originally played by Disha Vakani. The TV actress has also shared that it has affected her career.
Kajal told ETimes that she had auditioned for the role of Dayaben back in August. “I waited to hear from them for a long time, but when I did not receive any call from them, I realised that it hadn’t worked out,” she said. The actress also added that because of her one audition, many casting directors were under the impression that she is being considered for Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and thus, they didn’t offer her another role.
However, the actress did not receive a call back and thus, she has not been confirmed for the role. Despite that, her career has been affected.
Previously, Asit had spoken about the rumours. He said he didn’t even meet her and questioned who is Kajal Pisal. He also told Aaj Tak that many names he doesn’t know about, have been linked to the role of Dayaben.
Before Kajal, Aishwarya Sakhuja was approached for the role of Dayaben. The makers have been trying to get Disha back on board but since she hasn’t been able to make it back, they are searching for other actresses to play the role.
Apart from Disha, many actors were replaced from the show. More recently, Raj Anadkat, Neha Mehta and Shailesh Lodha had walked out of the show.
