    I think leap was not required in Parichay at this time atleast. Richa was in jail and you could have shown her there. Meanwhile Rohit would have tried something. In parallel, you could have shown us Kunal's professional track... Leap could have come after that!!!! Everything after confession moved too fast!!!

    well for once i agree with her...i prefer seasonal shows rather than shows that runs for years...she is right in her place...its all bcz of channel...which she have no control at all...

    even she doesn't like to take leaps...at least she admits...but she had to make the tough decision bcz of channel

    she changed the tellyworld...i hope she brings seasonal shows too

    Ekta you have changed the Indian telly world with your sagas and shows and now is your chance to bring in the much needed season shows for the Indian audience as you are saying.And plz go back and watch Parichay promos, it was a show of kunal chopra and his second chance in life and family was part of the show not the USP.The USP of the show was and always will be Kunal chopra and the awesome chemistry of Kunal and Siddhi.

    I actually wish Indian soaps had season breaks. I think the quality of shows would have been better

    Honestly Parichay had a lot of potential for enticing audience without bringing in the oft repeated leap saga!Your writers screwed up big time.Freshness can be incorporated without leaps for startersask your creatives and writers to not copy from old shows.What drove the audience away from Parichay is the vamp-giri and slow, brutal, seemingly deliberate assassination of the central character Kunal Chopra by your efficient bunch of writers and creatives! And don't cover-up the lack of talent in your production by bringing in the 'seasonal shows' excuse, there are shows on TV that have been running for years without breaks and yet retaining their audience!

    Not a bad idea,3 months wd be long,1 months can be given break-we should seriously think about it

    blame game is what your good in doing Ekta. The story of parichay had immense potential to carry on for another year with out leap.only if the writers had sat down to write,instead of copy pasting from old shows and movies. The leap looks the exact copy of parichay from the 1st episode.We had enough of Richa pre-leap and were looking forward to Richa less parichay. she's the show killer and many of us are staying away from parichay only because of her. Kunal chopra's the man of the show has lost his charm, plz stop butchering him further, make him into the man he was to bring back the charm of Parichay.
