The volatile nature of an infinite series often leaves makers at the mercy of cast members, whose decision to leave a show has them in a bind. Fans of Disha Vakani, popularly known as Dayaben from the television show 'Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah', were disheartened to learn of the actor's departure from the family-drama. Quick to sense audience sentiment, the makers, who were initially contemplating on roping in a replacement, have instead decided to offer Vakani an extended leave.




A source tells mid-day that the actor, who requested to call time on her stint on the show since she's expecting her first child, will return after her pregnancy leave. "The makers don't want to replace Disha. She is an integral part of the show. They will concentrate on the other characters in her absence."
