    If an episode airs weekly, but the plot is very much good, its a win-win for viewers and actors!!!

    i like the idea for goodness and weel being of stars..but as fan..i will be greedy for episodes 5 days a week. Even weekends r difficult to pass..
    Why dont they start suiting for 3 months episode bank before they actually start the serial..The Channel can play a role to it!!

    The answer is obviously that it would be better if we followed the american formate. But honestly, I main reason I watch Indian telly is because its everyday and I have no patience to wait a week, and lets not even talk about the end of a season. Love you Barun!
