based on a simple logical mind, I will as a viewer raise few questions - and they too will raise the same point -
1) Fine ur actor, wanted to quit (we'll ignore that from break to quit it was overnight decision), he would have put in papers long back...not last week - in that scenario :
a) Did u try to convince him ? If it still didnt work out the convincing - you had two options - plan and finish the show with him - else like any other PH (who have ethics) give a press release to the audience, that our actor wants to part ways due to personal choices, and we continuing the show and wish him well ahead...Audience would have cried...but not screamed FOUL !!!
b) Channel too should have adressed it then, taken care of it - not gone ahead and announce an International show cheating people if he was indeed not agreeing to stay back...also, from an evening he is "undecided- taking a short break" to "seems to have made mind to quit"...????
Really if anyone answers me those above - Channel or PH - other than BS himself making statements or interviews when he is bound to them in contracts...I will as a viewer accept it was done in a decent manner
2) An actor who has put in 1.5 years of hard work - etc etc ...wants to "take a break for family and relax" at his peak ...shall we really buy it even if I am clueless to anything - is he nearing his retirement age, is he a wife to look after kids and cooking or he is a Vijay mallya to go travelling on his jet ??? Movie comes in April !!!
Why will he not see his career's biggest project to completion for 1-2 months more and then leave when show closes !!!!
Answer the above - PH or Channel -- and we will take then anything u feed us !!!
Biggest Foul play - Teaser of interview yesterday morning - is it some oscar winning award show - that they they couldnt release the full version even after a day - how much more edits needed ???
He gave Nooreen interview last thurs - saying its break - that was recorded and to go on air today - in a weekend his statements have changed -- and they now nt gonna telecast that, but air a live interview ...wow, and they still saying they are "doodh ka dhula hua"
If fans sit silently and let them get away now, after UK trip, they have no idea whats gonna hit - watever be the statements released, they will be all to mislead - till UK trip it is to the fan's advantage that they can demand answers and "change the mind" and like Aabhas said - "have faith"
Are they discussing country's budget that in meetings after meetings since Friday they cant come to a single decision
If Sobti just decided to quit, even if for his movie - I would have been sad and that is it. But the way this all has been played - there should not be any question on whether this whole business is fishy or not. This IS fishy.
The first time the news came two months back - since then I am wondering - have I been this much fooled? Sobti is a hunky-dori guy but he never seemed stupid! Why on earth would he want to leave a show that will add to his movie audience? I actually think he probably asked for a break - I would not be surprised if it was for health reasons because he does look torn. But the rest .. is a mystery. The man who took up a job at an early age .. the man who has always been open about his struggle .. the man who is just married for two years .. the man who has just seen his career flourishing .. decides one fine morning, he does not want to work and want to relax at home???? Please!!
He is the man who finished his movie shoot in 40 days and still came to shoot for the show because he is accountable - you cannot question his dedication or hard work. And he just decides to leave the show when the show is about to end? If when he decided, the show was not fated to end soon .. now it does. So he would still leave .. not giving two more months to end the show that is his best work so far, a good end? This whole thing has so many loose ends .. and it just does not add up.
I am not a blind fan .. I have never been one. I have been thinking over it for days and in the day end, when I don't find any answer and when I see the questions are not to the man .. but to the Channel & the PH - I do know whom to blame or at least to whom to seek answers from.
Thanks for keeping us enlightened, Priya. Many of us could use it so much right now.
