Earlier this year, it was reported that Disha Vakani was to quit Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah ahead of the baby's arrival but was retained by the makers, keeping the character's popularity in mind. The producers of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah told mid-day that Disha Vakani has been requested to remain part of the show and has been offered an extended maternity leave.
Ahead of Disha Vakani's leave period, shooting routines have also been rescheduled to fit in five to six episodes a day. "This ensures that she doesn't have to keep returning to the set. Makers have taken close-ups shots and will also arrange shoots at her home," I>Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah producer Asit Modi told mid-day.
Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, which recently celebrated nine years of the show, also casts Dilip Joshi as Jethalal Champaklal Gada, Bhavya Gandhi as Tipendra Gada, Munmun Dutta as Babita Iyer and Shailesh Lodha in the titular role.
