Divyanka Tripathi offered the role of Daya Gada in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah before Disha Vakani came on board?


Divyanka Tripathi has been in the television industry for over 15 years and has left a mark with shows like Banoo Main Teri DulhannMrs. & Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale, and Yeh Hai Mohabbatein to name a few. She also participated in Nach Baliye 8 with her husband Vivek Dahiya and went on to win the show. Now, she'll be seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi 11. While Divyanka always makes sure to choose good projects, she has declined many offers in the past. 

According to reports, Divyanka was the first choice to play the character of Daya Gada in Sab TV's popular show Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah. Reportedly, when she was offered the role, she chose to turn it down and eventually, Disha Vakani made it iconic. However, this information is unverified.

Disha tied the knot with a Mumbai-based chartered accountant named Mayur Padia in 2015. Two years later, that is in 2017, Disha and Mayur were blessed with a baby girl, Stuti. The actress has been on maternity break for 4 years now. It is still unclear whether Disha will return to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah or a new actress will be roped in.
