Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah’s Disha Vakani aka Dayaben was away from the television screens after she took a maternity break in September 2017. The popularity of Disha has been such that the makers have not yet substituted her and every now and then speculations continue to fuel around her return to the show.
Now, in a website interview, actor Bhavya Gandhi, who played Disha’s son Tapu on the TMKOC screen, revealed that even after they are no longer working together, TV’s most beloved mother-son duo keeps in touch. Bhavya left TMKOC in February 2017 for the unknown. He was replaced by Raj Anadkat, a 19-year-old teenager based in Mumbai.
On Disha, Bhavya said, “We definitely have these video calls sometimes, and every time, she sees me, she goes, ‘Aahhh, whatt, beard?’. I say, yes, I’ve got a beard now. She has never seen me in a beard, so she gets shocked. I say, ‘Haan, aave gaiyo’ (Yes, they’ve grown) and I am growing them more.”

Bhavya also revealed that he still keeps in touch with Nidhi Bhanushali, Kush Shah and others of the Tapu Sena actors. Bhavya revealed about his decision to quit the show that life on a TV set had become monotonous for him, and after playing the same character for more than eight years, he got no pleasure from his work.
