which made a comeback with its Season 2 on August 23rd is now on the way out.
According to our source, "This weekend slice of life show will end post IPL ( BCCI's annual Twenty Twenty cricket and entertainment carnival starts in March). The shoot of the show is likely to end in the last week of February. The show will most likely wrap up in April". Anupam Vasudev, EVP Marketingand Communication , Star India
cryptically answered, "You never know", when asked on the future of Baa Bahu aur Baby. "Our network's relationship with JD Majethia is very strong. Shows come and go", he added.
This saga about the lower middle class Thakkar family has been plagued with problems ever since it came back with Season 2. Shweta Keswani
who essays the role of Gudiya feels that, "One of the reasons for low ratings could be the fact that the channel has not been publicizing the show aggressively."Meenakshi bhabhi aka Sucheta Trivedi
blamed the channel for changing the time slot repeatedly and not airing the episodes regularly." I get many calls, SMS and emails asking about why film awards are telecast rather than our show on Sunday evenings."
A caste member who did not want to be named asked the media to tell them when the show will end, so that they can take up some other offers. "This uncertainty is not good, we actors are always the last to be informed" said our source.
Shweta on her part felt that, "As Baa Bahu has had a good run of 5 years, so if it ends, its okay, anything that begins must end right."
Producer J. D. Majethia in reply to our text message said, "Nothing has come to me in writing". Reporter and Author: Anil Merani
