There has been speculation in the media regarding the early exit of some YRF shows on Sony. It was reported that the supernatural saga Seven, might shut down before its 26 episode formal run ends.

But YRF Creative Head, Ravina Raj Kohli has dismissed these stories as total falsehoods. "We will finish our pre declared number of episodes.  There is no question of it shutting down before, as shooting is still on".

On question of a second season for all shows, Ravina was circumspect and said "There might be one, but it will not necessarily follow the first season's end. Our idea is to have the American model of taking a break and coming back with next season's after a while."  Tellybuzz had reported earlier that the second season is already under plan.  Some shows (Ristha.com) might be taken off while few will continue. 

None of the YRF shows ( Mahi  Way,  Powder )  have raked in the  TRPs.  Apparently Yashraj has also spent huge amounts of money on these shows. Seven supposedly cost Rs 32 lacs per episode. "They have shot the whole thing like a film, this budget must have caused the production house huge losses," said an actor on terms of anonymity. 

Shruti Seth who plays the lead in the marriage bureau show Rishtha.com is quite disappointed. "I guess they only want to see grandeur on the big screen, and want only mundane stuff on TV."  On YRF she says "They should be felicitated for trying something different.   Such attempts are required, if everybody plays safe how will the industry progress", she ends.

Pushtiie who plays the lead character in Mahi Way also admitted that the low ratings may have given a jolt to the channel and production house. When asked on the possibility of second season she also was cagey and just quipped" Right now I am too busy with the shooting of the climax of the season."

    mahi way rishta.com

    really really really happy that seven will continue. They better come back with a second season. But i DON'T like the idea of a break between the seasons.....

    I really hope Sony continues these shows, because seven, rishta.com, and mahi way are shows that my family and i look forward to watching since they are a change from the regular family dramas.

    Indian TV audiences are queer. They like to see walkie talkie rainbows all the time .

    YRF shows were good and modern and technically much superior .
