TV sitcom 'Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah' has enjoyed a successful run over the years. One of the most favourite characters of the audience, Dayaben is all set to be seen on the show after four years.

If sources are to be believed, actress Rakhi Vijan popularly remembered for her iconic character Sweety Mathur from the '90s sitcom 'Hum Paanch' has been shortlisted for the role of Dayaben.
