Timeline: Feb 2012- June 2012
The show, which revolved around a father and his five daughters who are of marriageable age, did not live up to its hype from the day it was launched. Even Eijaz Khan's charisma could not woo the audience. The show makers tried to add spice with a twist in which Khan's character dies, but it didn't work. The show could not go far and went off air within five months.
Eijaz Khan: "It was a great learning experience working with some senior actors like Rakesh Bedi. Some things work, some don't. But sometimes it happens that something which doesn't work might be close to your heart. I have always given my 100 per cent to a show, and success according to me is aiming to do something most efficiently."Aasman Se Aage
Timeline: April 2012- July 2012
The story follows the journey
of a girl called Meenakshi (Ojaswi Oberoi) who hails from a poor background and takes part in a dance reality show. Her producer, played by Apoorva Agnihotri, tries to exploit her poverty in the show to acquire high TRPs. Though touted as Apoorva's comeback after a long break, the show did not manage to garner good TRPs. It earned only 0.5 to 0.7 TRP while on air. After completing a three-month run, the show is going off air on July 13.
Ojaswi Oberoi: "People initially liked the show but due to some erratic factors, the show was axed within a few months. First of all, it was launched during the IPL season and secondly the time slot of 10.30 pm clashed with two other prominent shows (Bade Achhe Lagte Hai and Na Bole Tum...Na Maine Kuch Kaha
). Though the concept was unique, it couldn't impress viewers."Sajda Tere Pyaar Mein
