Actors shooting for "Jamuna Paar" and other soaps on Imagine TV are shocked at the sudden decision of the Hindi entertainment channel to shut down.
Many were busy shooting for their serials when they got the jolting news and say it will leave employees of the channel without their livelihood.
"I got to know after the statement was released Thursday by Turner, around 1.30 p.m. when we were shooting for the show. The entire team has been working very hard, so the news was very shocking for all of us," Ankur told IANS.
Vidhi said she was not expecting this.
"The news of the channel shutting down was a big time shock. Who will expect something like this when you are happily shooting for your show? 'Jamuna Paar' is life for me. The shoot stopped yesterday, but I hope the channel starts again and we are back to work. It is very unfortunate and I feel sad. There were so many cute and interesting things lined up for the viewers," she said.
Turner currently operates HBO, CNN, Cartoon Network, POGO, WB, TCM and Boomerang in India.
According to FICCI-KPMG report, Imagine's "Dharam Patni", "Zor Ka Jhatka" and "Ratan Ka Rishta" were among the top 10 fictional and non-fictional shows launched in 2011, but none of them managed to garner TRPs.
Ankita Sharma, who plays Preeto in "Sawaare Sabke Sapne - Preeto", says it will leave many unemployed.
"I was shocked when I got the news, but it's part of life. No one can do anything about it. It will bring a change in life. But I feel bad for the channel's employees who are now unemployed. I just hope everyone gets something better," Ankita told IANS.
The channel made an impressive start with shows like "Ramayan", "Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi", "Say Shaava Shaava", "Jasuben Jayantilaal Joshi Ki joint Family", "Kitani Mohobbat Hai", but in the later years it couldn't managed to get satisfactory TRPs.

Ye tho hona hi tha. Just surprised that imagine managed to pull along for so long! It is rather shocking that a channel could not manage with a set of such superb soaps that were so popular with the audience!
I CANT IMAGINE THAT NDTV IMAGINE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
I HAD MY EXAMS ,SO I WAS UNABLE TO SEE PREETO FROM 21ST MARCH 2012 & I WAS THINKING ALL TIME THAT WHEN I WILL WATCH PREETO AFTER EXAMS,
TODAY, WHEN I HEAR THAT NDTV IMAGINE IS VANISHED FROM TV CHANNELS, I AM THINKING THAT I AM VERY VERY VERY UNLUCKY.
I AM SOOO UPSET, PLEASE ANYONE TELL ME THE REASON FOR THIS UNEXPECTABLE SHUTTING DOWN OF IMAGINE TV
