A source informs that Shailesh Lodha has not shot for the show for the past one month and has no plans to return to the sets. He is not happy with his contract and feels that his dates are not being used properly in this show. There is also a reason that Shailesh Lodha is not getting more opportunities because of this show. In the past, he had turned down many offers but now he does not want to miss new opportunities.

However, the same report also states that Neela Telefilms headed by Asit Kumarr Modi are meanwhile trying to negotiate with the actor. Nothing as of now has been officially stated by the actor or the production house.

We often hear rumours of actors leaving the show and getting replaced. But till it is confirmed by the horse’s mouth, speculation rules the social media.

Another prominent face from the show who always manages to be in the news is Disha Vakani, who played Dayaben for the longest time. Dayaben’s absence from the show after Disha Vakani’s maternity break led to many speculations over her return and replacement but no official statement has been made as yet.

Disha took a maternity break from the show after she was blessed with a baby girl in 2018. She got hitched to Mayur Pandya on November 24, 2015.
