Disha Vakani, born on August 17, 1978, turns 42 today. She has acted in different projects, but Dayaben from Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah will always be her most celebrated performances. From 2009 to 2018, the actress entertained television viewers with her fantastic performance.
So far, no one knows when the actress will return on TMKOC. There have been reports that she will make a grand entry for special episodes. It has been 2 years since the actress took a break from acting and went on maternity leave. While we never know when Disha will come back, Taarak Mehta will always be a precious show for her. There is not a single doubt about the same.
On Disha Vakani’s birthday today, we will share with you some interesting quotes by her. In one of her interviews long ago, the actress was all praises for Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and the creator. In an interaction with Tellychakkar, the birthday girl had talked about the show’s comedy. She said, “I feel that canned laughter does not necessarily make a show a comedy. Rather, the viewer should laugh spontaneously on seeing the show.”
Disha Vakani further added, “Taarak Mehta in our show in a way reminds me of Charlie Chaplin who had said, “I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying.” The scene in Gold Rush in which Chaplin boils and eats a shoe is very touching and poignant though it is a comedy. Despite being sad, enjoy life- that is comedy.”
The actress also spoke about her famous line ‘Tappu Ke Papa’. She said, “It is a custom in Gujarati families that the wife should not call her husband by his first name. It is believed that if she does so, her husband’s life span will be cut short. This is why she addresses him as the father of her child. Or she will call him by enquiring, ‘Are you listening?’.”
Happy Birthday, Disha Vakani! Your fans can’t wait for you to return to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah soon!
