Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah is one of the longest-running shows on the small screen and is still going strong. The show is known for its rib-tickling comedy and has entertained the audiences for more than nine years now.
Various Bollywood celebrities from Salman Khan to Shahrukh Khan have made a special appearance on the show in order to promote their movies.
The show has given iconic characters like Jethalal and Daya to the television audiences.
Disha Vakani who plays the role of 'Daya Jethalal Gada' has become a household name. It won't be wrong to call her as the heart and soul of the show.
The talented actress, who is currently eight months pregnant, has shot for her last episode on September 17. If you are thinking she has quit the show, then you need not worry.
The about-to-be-mom has taken a maternity leave of around five to six months and will return to the show after that.
Producer of the show Asit Modi had earlier confirmed that Disha will remain an integral part of the show. The big question is what will the makers do now to cope up with her absence.
One thing is for sure, the viewers will miss Disha as the beloved Dayaben and her pillow phrase ''Hey Maa Maataji'.
