Disha Vakani aka Daya Ben, who won over the hearts of audiences with her rib-tickling antics and comic timing on Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma is equally a jovial person in real-life.
Ladies from Taarak Mehta… Jennifer Mistry Bansiwala, Ambika Ranjankar and Sonalika Joshi in a conversation with ETimes TV made revelations about Disha’s funny side.
Sonalika Joshi, who plays Mrs Madhavi Bhide had shared with us that Disha is very mischievous and playful in real-life. On the sets her little idiosyncrasies would also make people giggle. Even when she would get angry, nobody would come to know as she was really cute and used to never shout or scold anyone.
Jennifer Mistry aka Mrs Roshan Sodhi added, “We have shared our vanity van for almost 5 years. It was Disha, Neha (Anjali) and me. The room had only two beds at that time, so, Neha would be resting on one and on the other one, even if Disha was resting, when I used to walk in, she would get up and allow me to use it. She was so cooperative. Be it sharing food or helping while getting ready, she would always think about others and had a helping nature. During our make-up session also she would automatically move away for me, I had to never request her. She would sacrifice for others. There were a time when she was fond of photography and would make me her model. She would make me pose for her for hours and I used to request her to let me go (laughs). She would subtly crack a joke and everyone would burst into laughter and she would stand there with a poker face.”
Jennifer also shared that once Disha’s contact details got public and she would get 50 calls a day and the latter had quite a quirky way to deal with it, she said, “This is a very funny incident and we all know about it. She would attend all the anonymous calls and never ignored any of them. She would change her voice and speak in a manly voice, pretending to be her assistant. She would receive the call and tell everyone, ‘hello kaun bol raha hai mam abhi shoot mein busy hai.’ Disha patiently handled the entire thing. She is mind blowing and has a heart of gold. I used to keep telling her, ‘Disha agar main 5% bhi teri tarah ho jaaun na main kahan pahuch jaaungi.”
