I mean, I refuse to believe that if they had negotiated properly to Mishal's satisfaction from the start (of January 2011) that he still would've been leaving. In fact, I believe that Mishal would like to stay, but because of the stupid stunt the heads pulled (spreading rumors about him, etc.) and because of the way the heads handled the whole situation from the very start - they leave with him with no other choice but to step out as any person with self-respect wouldn't agree to any such treatment.
Yet still, despite the rumors and articles, Mishal was willing to stick around. Which means that he was negotiating with the production house (as he mentioned in one interview), and if he is still leaving, then the production house must not have agreed to his demands. I doubt that Mishal has demanded much, but the production house is all about dirty politics and TRPs and all that cold shiz. In the end, they don't care about the essence of a show, or a show at all - they care about the money they can make.
I still believe that if Mishal's situation had been handled better by the channel heads, then there wouldn't have been a problem right now. There wouldn't have been the question about him even considering to leave. It's obvious that he's been pressured out, if anything.
I don't know about any aunty segments, but I'm quite sure that Mishal's contract is ending soon and that he is, in fact, leaving. The question is only when and whether the show is continuing without him or ending with his departure.
It's incredible how the channel has been treating their viewers with consideration throughout 2010 and then suddenly they just decide to axe our favorite character. Regardless of whether they've actually done it yet or not. They still considered it and that alone says a lot about the channel. I mean, why would you want to make such drastical changes to an already perfect show that was loved and cherished, knowing that it would disturb the constant viewers?
His demands are from the channel... He doesn't want to Continue If they change the story and make his character secondary or close to being a side kick .. thats where the problem lies.....thats where things need to be worked on .. Mishal has not given any notice either that he is quitting ... AS for PH, they are negotiating with the channel i think .. so its upto the "Channel" the ball is in their Court.. now u will ask why would they want to Ruin their own show when they are much aware of the importance of Mishal and Dutta.. the answer is being discussed here time and again .. its not abt giving benefit to the show or channel .. its abt satisfying someone's EGO ... . but obviously that is not bigger then the will of Viewers and the Sincerity the Team of LTL puts into their work ... Inspite of such nasty rumors being floating around they all had been consistent giving their best... they are Already a winner... so being an audience and an intelligent one we should also understand what is right and wrong ..
and For Why PH and Mishal are not bound in a contract on permanent basis .. first of all who told u that they are not under any contract? secondly even if they are not the main reason might be that they are trying to save the show .. if Mishal signs a contract for 5 months they it will give liberty to Channel to take this story anywhere .. in any nasty direction and it will close the door of standing against their decisions.. so that might be the reason "if" going on without signing a contract thingy is true .. which i doubt it is ...
anyway... i have a feeling that PH .. particularly Hemal thakkar is on Mishal's side... Cant say abt the rest ..
