The fans of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah received a major shock a few days ago when it was reported that Disha Vakani has ‘quit’ permanently. Yes, a news report stated that Disha aka Dayaben has bid adieu to TMKOC forever. The reason for Disha’s sudden decision to exit came as a shocker. Disha Vakani had been missing from TMKOC since 2017, after the birth of her Baby girl.

Now, the latest report in Koimoi.com, states that the reason for Disha Vakani aka Dayaben quitting TMKOC. According to the report, Disha refused to come back due to ‘pay issues’ with the makers of TMKOC.

The report states that Disha Vakani used to earn a salary of 1.25 lakhs before her maternity break. But, she demanded a remuneration hike during the negotiations. Reportedly, Disha Vakani demanded a sum of 1.50 lakhs per episode to return to TMKOC. Not only this but the report further states she also wanted to shuffle her shoot timings, to manage work and personal life adequately.

A gossip mill informed the portal that Disha wanted to conclude the shoots by 6 Pm every day. The actress was comfortable working between 11 am to 6 pm, but the schedules of Television shows don’t function in that fashion. “Things did not materialize owing to all the terms and conditions, and her return on Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah was postponed,” the report stated.

Well, if these rumours are true or not is yet to be confirmed. Neither Disha Vakani nor the makers of of the show have opened up on her exit yet.
