‘Taarak Mehta Ka Olltah Chashmah’ director Malav Rajda recently replied to an Instagram user after asking him to pick a new actor as Dayaben. The role was played by Disha Vakani but she has been on indefinite maternity leave since 2017.
On one of Malav’s Instagram posts, a ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Olltah Chashmah’ fan commented: “plz new daya ko lay aawo sir. Itna wait kr ke bhi koi fayda hoga kay aap hi socho. Bichare fans kabse wait kr rahe h daya ke liye (Please bring a new Daya to the show, sir. What’s the point in delaying it? Poor fans have been waiting so long). “
Responding to the comment, Malav joked that if he started making requests, he could also be replaced. Malav wrote: “@ shindepooja91 mein zyada bolunga toh naya director the aayenge (if i ask too much they will have a new director) … it’s not in my hands at all … i just ran the show. .. i can’t make decisions about actors and a lot of other things … but jo hota hai ache ke liye hota hai (whatever happens, it happens for the best). “
Malav Rajda has said he has no say in the casting of “Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah”.
Last year, in a podcast with Sorabh Pant, Dilip said that the quality of “Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah” has suffered over the years.
“Abhi yeh almost like a factory ho gaya hai (now it has become almost like a factory). Every day writers have to find new topics. After all, they are also human beings. I agree that all of them episodes can’t be that level when you’ve been doing a daily show for so long. I have a feeling some episodes aren’t up to the level when it comes to humor, “he said.
