    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!

    A tight storyline would always keep viewers hooked and a decent interval followed by a next season makes immense sense. I agree with Barun Sobti.

    Well I do remember the Noreen Khan show where Barun said he works for 30 days a month without breaks!All I can say is that there is absolutely noone who can get on top without hard work and the actors get the worst of this,feel for you Barun and all others...Though for the last line-I would prefer a concrete storyline,because without that I don't think I would gobble up any crap just because the serial comes everyday =)

    PS-Barun you rock!! :D

    PPS-Can't wait for 8 pm =)

    Barun's stance is quite correct..If shows were to be seasonal than the quality of the story and episodes would have been so much higher..Plus, these actors and the whole team behind the screen, actually have to put in inhumane work hours to dish out more that 20 episodes a month..
