Papad Pol gets one year extension; Optimystix project shifts from SAB TV to Star Plus...

Tellybuzz earlier reported that SAB TV's Papad Pol - Shahbuddin Rathod ki Rangeen Duniya is under the scanner and might be closing shop. But the latest we hear is that the channel and the production house have decided to extend the show for a year.

The reason behind this, a source informs, "Optimystix was supposed to come up with a new family drama in SAB TV, which is now shifted to Star Plus."

The source says, "The storyline was not suitable for SAB TV as it was turning towards a family drama and was less humorous which was not of SAB TV's flavor. Therefore the production has decided to shift the show from SAB TV to Star Plus and extend Papad Pol for a year."

We contacted Vipul Shah, Head of Optimystix, and he confirms saying, "Yes, Papad Pol has got an extension of one year starting from this May and is in no position to go off air. And talking about few new shows, we are in talks with different channels to pitch our shows, nothing has been finalized yet."

Guess Papad Pol fans have a reason to celebrate…
