Armanon Ka Balidaan produced by RG Media and Entertainment got into a problem because of its title even before it got launched. The show which is based on the reservation system did not appeal to the masses and fared badly on the TRP chart. Also, Dolly Bindra's much-hyped and costly entry did not do help the show.
Rakt Sambandh produced by UTV, on the other hand was giving a decent rating at the 10 PM slot, but the rating all of a sudden went downhill when it got moved to the early evening slot of 7 PM.
Our source states, "The channel has decided to axe both the shows. No new fiction shows will be introduced at the above said slots. Having said this, these were new slots created when the SRK reality show Zor Ka Jhatka was getting launched. Both Rakt Sambandh and Armanon were moved from prime time slots to the early evening slots to accommodate the big ticket reality. The channel now plans to concentrate on the already existing prime time shows and of course, on the two new launches Looteri Dulhan and Beend Banoonga Ghodi Chadoonga".
When contacted, Naman Shaw, protagonist of Rakt Sambandh told us, "Yes, the Producers have informed us that Rakt Sambandh will be going off air in April".
We tried contacting the Producer of Rakt Sambandh and Armanon Ka Balidaan, but could not get thro' to them.
