The show that started off as a sequel to Sanjeevani that aired on Star Plus, is now tipped to wrap up by this month-end. Going by the buzz, the channel has decided to pull the show off due to poor ratings.
A source informs, “The show has not been doing well for quite some time now and the production house is aware of it. The show had run into a lot of controversies more for its off-screen drama. The actors had also threatened to walk out of the show if the tracks weren’t worked on. However even after the revision of the tracks, the TRPs slipped further. Also the channel has several shows lined up and finally the decision to pull the show off air was taken. The show is set to go off air by the third week of October. The dates that the production house is looking at is probably the 15th or the 18th of this month.”
We spoke to Karan Wahi, who plays Sid to confirm the news but he feigned ignorance. Says Wahi, “I have heard the rumours as well but we haven’t been intimated by the production house yet.”
Shilpa Anand echoed Wahi’s words and said, “I have heard about these rumours as well. But I have no idea about it. We haven’t been told anything yet.”
All efforts to get in touch with Palki Malhotra, the creative head remained futile.
Producer Siddarth Malhotra confirmed the news but was unsure of the date.
Yeh Ishq Haaye, the new show by Panglosean Entertainment is said to be replacing Dill Mill Gayye in the 8.00 pm slot.
