Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah (TMKOC), which has been successfully running for more than a decade, has a massive fanbase and so does the cast. While all the actors of the show are immensely popular, one character that continues to remain in the heart of fans is of Disha Vakani's.

Disha played the lead role of Dayaben and was the highlight of the show. She had brought the uniqueness in the character she portrayed and hence, even after more than two years of her absence from the show, speculations regarding her return continue to make news every now and then.
