Ever since Smriti made her exit from Balaji’s Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, all eyes have turned towards Smriti’s own production show – Virrudh. With Sony planning to axe most of its current shows, speculations were on that Virrudh was also in the ‘Hit List’. Rumors made waves about Virrudh’s end, and the time slot being taken over by Ekta for her new Balaji soap. Is this coincidence really on the cards?

Let us know more about the future of Virrudh from the serial’s main lead and producer Smriti Irani, and actors, Achint Kaur and Vikram Gokhale.

Vikram Gokhale, who plays the pivotal character of Dhirendra Raisinghania speaks to Telly Buzz, “As an actor, it doesn’t affect me when people spread false rumors that the show is going to end. Because, let me tell you that its not! It is up to the channel to decide what’s to be done with the show. Virrudh is a popular show, and it is doing really well. See, there is something called a ‘good show’ and something called a ‘show that runs’. Virrudh is a show that is a good show, and as far as what people say, well, as the saying goes whenever people start criticizing you for doing well, you need to understand that you’re doing a good job! If the show has to end, why will it end for false rumors, its only when the directors, actors or the creative heads do a bad job, and when we don’t get good feedbacks from the viewers, is when the channel can thinking about stopping the show. The channel is wise, they know what’s right.”

Talking about her close-to-heart show Virrudh, Smriti opined, “I don’t know who spreads these rumors, but no, Virruddh is not going to end anytime soon. Whoever is my so called well wisher who wants to spread such false rumors, can just go ahead and do so, it’s not going to affect the cast and crew.”

The gorgeous Achint Kaur left no stone unturned as she says, “It’s a corporate game, a game, that is being played at a very different level, where its really beyond ratings, and TRPs, etc. The operation happens at a very different level, where creativity, and actor satisfaction, whether the story is good matters the most. As an actor, I wouldn’t do something if I don’t like it. And yes, Virrudh is doing well. It has been the talk of the town. Its like India is being called a third world country, and our people are fine with it being called so, and the other countries don’t want India to do well, so that’s why they keep picking on India, the same goes for Virrudh.”

Well, rumors and speculations are part and parcel of Tellyworld. If Virrudh is being talked about everywhere, it surely does mean that it’s getting popular in the eyes of the public. What’s more, we have got the Final verdict that Virrudh and Smriti Irani are going to stay for long…. So get ready to check out the new twists and turns in Virrudh, which is all set to make a difference..

Virrudh is not any dramaIt has its standard and should not be the typical drama serials where we see same type of characters. If it can't invent new topics, should finish instead of dragging.
