I am telling you, TRP is not the only reason! Star Plus is definitely ruthless when it comes to the number games, but it still gives some time for its shows to catch on! I think the main problem was between the creative / Production House and the Channel honchos!
If the channel heads are not happy with someone from the PH, then nothing on heaven or earth can save the show!
I do think that the costing of the show is also an issue...with so many actors, it cannot be a reasonably produced show...I mean, you have got to pay every single actor on the show, even if they are standing like a piece of furniture in the background...you have still got to pay them! Here is where the Producers went completely off the chart...they should have limited their number of actors and kept the production costs low!
I am pretty sure that the TRP's that will come out this week will be better, but even that won't stop the show from going off-air!
On the other hand, with a channel like Star Plus, you never know! They might make a last minute change and decided to let the show stay! See for them, they have to do nothing much...just let the show stay where it is!
But in this case, I think even the Production House has given up and don't want to make the show for SP!
ps: Yes, the customer service centre lady sounded genuinly confounded and surprised that someone was interested enough in Khamoshiyaan to actually call them up and ask why its going off-air!
