Relatives and friends of one of the most popular faces on the small screen, Disha Vakani aka Dayaben of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma, and her husband Mayur Padia held a baby shower for the expecting mom on Monday. Bhavya Gandhi, who earlier played her onscreen son Tappu on the show, posted a picture from the event on Instagram.

Gandhi captioned the photo, “Glad to be a part of my “reel” mother’s “real” baby shower ceremony.”

Tarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma is among one of the longest running shows on the Indian television. Vakani plays a key character, Dayaben, in the show. She and Dilip Joshi are much loved among the fans. Their show is also among the flagship programmes of SAB TV.

Disha tied the knot with Mayur Padia last year in Mumbai. Padia is a chartered accountant by profession.

Her character will not be able to shoot for the show for some time because of her pregnancy, but the makers are not expected to replace her with anybody else.

A source close to the production unit of the show told Mid-Day that the makers are willing to wait for Disha’s return. The source said, “The makers don’t want to replace Disha. She is an integral part of the show. They will concentrate on the other characters in her absence.”
