They are shooting till the 15th of February and the last episode will be telecast on 23rd Feb!
I cannot fathom how SLB agreed for the 7:30 Pm time slot!
Given how expensively mounted his show is! But then Saathiya also went onto become the number one show across channels on the same time slot some time ago!
I don't think the actors stand much to lose...once you work with a channel like Star Plus, in all likelihood, the channel gives another chance to the actor to work with them again and again! There are umpteen examples of shows which ended abruptly but the actors went on to more shows with SP!
So I am pretty sure that we are going to see atleast Manit and Mrunal in the future! (But I wish they would do a show with Zee...which has an awesome record of continuing their shows and never end it mid-way!)
Koe, I cannot agree with you more. There are so many shows which have an absurd storyline and don't even rake in the required numbers, yet they continue...as I said before, a lot depends on the relationship between the Production House and the Channel. If anyone in the Channel is pissed off with the PH / Creatives, then all is lost for them! The Channel calls the shot and half the creative input in any serial comes from the channel and the other half from the production house! The fact that SP was not giving any creative input was indication enough that they were planning to axe it!
Its only big-shot production houses like Four Lions (IPKKND), Balaji Telefilms or Rajan Shahi who have the authority to do as they please without being bothered by what the channel thinks! The others have to know tow to the channel!
I do feel sorry for the actors...especially Manit! Even though they will get another chance, the point is that they drop other projects to do a big one like Khamoshiyaan and when it ends midway, they lose out on time which they could have utilized otherwise! But I suppose, acting is not a regular, stable kind of proffession and actors are aware of the same!
