Names such as Ami Trivedi. Divyanka Tripathi, Aishwarya Sakhuja and Shilpa Shinde had surfaced as to be the possible next Dayaben. But eventually, neither of them got the role.

Producer on getting Dayaben back in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah
Well, a couple of weeks ago, there was a track wherein Sundarlal aka Mayur Vakani had returned to Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah and had promised Jethalal aka Dilip Joshi that he will get Dayaben aka Disha Vakani back in Mumbai. However, it was just a gimmick. Fans of the show were pretty upset and had lashed out at the makers for fooling them. Producer of Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, Asit Kumarr Modi had addressed the absence of Disha Vakani or Dayaben. He had assured the fans that they’ll do their best to bring back Dayaben. He was not sure if it will be Disha Vakani or a new Dayaben.
While talking about the standee that they brought in place of real Dayaben in the episode, Modi had said that Dayaben needs a kickass entry and cannot be brought just like that. Meanwhile, Shailesh Lodha has quit the show. Raj Anadkat is also said to have left the show. However, he has refused to confirm the same in order to build suspense.
