Shailesh Lodha is not the first one to leave Taarak Mehta Ka Oolta Chashma. Several other characters have quit the show. Among them, Daya Ben was the most popular character and no one has been able to replace her since she left. 

This is because she made a place in the hearts of the audiences with her unique ways. The makers are still looking for a new Daya Ben who can charm the audience just like Disha Vakani. 

Gopi Bahu AKA Gia Manek

Gia Manek became a popular face of the TV industry after she essayed the role of Gopi Bahu in Saath Nibhana Saathiya. Her character became extremely popular and Gopi Bahu became a household name. However, she left in the middle for another opportunity but her other shows weren’t a success. 

Debolina Bhattacharjee replaced Gia Manek in the show and she didn’t disappoint us. She was equally good and went to essay the role for years. She even played Gopi Bahu in the spin-off.

However, Gia Manek is now working on another spin-off of the same show and is essaying the role of Gopika Bahu.

Hina Khan came into the TV industry with the show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. She played the role of Akshara Singhania and this popular show and character brought her immense fame. In no time, the show as well as her character made a place in the hearts of the audience. 

The show is still running with the third generation but Hina Khan left long ago in 2016. This is because she didn’t want to play the character of a mother-in-law. Also, she wanted to explore further opportunities in the industry.

Shilpa Shinde gained immense popularity by playing the role of Angoori Bhabhi. Her accent and style were liked by people. She played the role for a few years but quit the show in the middle due to some differences of opinions with the makers. Shubhangi Atre replaced her in the show.
