Fans are speculating whether the original Daya, Disha Vakani, will make a comeback or if the producers intend to cast a new actress in the role despite the promo’s rapid rise to fame.

The eagerly awaited return of Daya to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is finally good news for the show’s devoted followers after years and years of waiting. Daya’s return to the programme has been promised in a brand-new commercial released by the creators of TMKOC after she has been missing for the past few years.

The Gokuuldham society, along with Jethalal, Tapu, and Bapuji, can be seen questioning Daya’s brother Sundar about her homecoming from Ahmedabad in a new sitcom trailer released by the producers on Tuesday.

Then, Sundar eventually admits that Daya is currently preoccupied with “seva” because it is the month of Shravan, but he also makes a commitment that Daya alone will light the Diwali lamp in the Gada family.

The moment the promo went viral, the show’s followers were ecstatic. Disha Vakani is slated to return to the show, but the producers haven’t said whether another actress will fill her role.

Actress Aishwarya Sakhuja disclosed last year that she had also tried her luck at the Daya auditions that the producers were holding.

“I had auditioned 20–25 days back. I can sense some kind of urgency when they are casting Dayaben’s character. So I was called to audition for the role. Usually, we get a call back within like a week’s time. But since it’s been that long, I don’t think I am doing it,” she had said in July 2022.

Disha has portrayed Daya on TMKOC ever since the show’s inception. But she took a maternity leave in 2017 and hasn’t come back since.
