So, Today is D-Day, when India's first ever spin-off 'Dil Bole Oberoi' goes on-air. The wait to the show has been a long one and the buzz surrounding the show has been huge. While 'Ishqbaaaz
' is an absolute fan favorite, 'Dil Bole Oberoi' aims to set that benchmark too.
Over the past week, several questions were popped as to the Indian audience 'not' being acquainted with the idea of a 'spin-off,' which is extremely popular in the west and the fact as to why and where did this idea come from.
While we tried to clear all the doubts of several fans out there, we did have a question as to why is the idea of a 'spin-off' being considered to a show which albeit is extremely popular, but not a TRP topper.
And trying to figure out this answer, we got in contact with our extremely reliable sources who are related to both the shows, where we got our answer to this million dollar question.
According to the sources, the idea of getting a spin-off was proposed to cater to the Indian audiences per se. A human being's attention span cannot be long enough to sustain an hour-long daily soap. If 'Ishqbaaaz
' was proposed to become a one-hour episode and if the same wasn't liked by the audiences, they would have switched to other shows on other channels. However, here, when the branding and the presentation of the show have been that of a different show, the idea completely changes. It is a fresh show with the same characters for the audience to look forward to. Therefore, the audience will automatically look forward to 'Ishqbaaaz
' first and then wonder what 'new things' are going to happen on 'Dil Bole Oberoi.'
Well, after knowing this, all of this makes total sense, doesn't it? The show is certainly all set to make history today and we are sure, things are only on the upside for the people associated with the show.
