#BREAKING: WHY did the makers of 'Ishqbaaaz' come up with 'Dil Bole Oberoi'..?

The show is a spin-off of 'Ishqbaaaz', but where did the idea of a spin-off come from..

So, Today is D-Day, when India's first ever spin-off 'Dil Bole Oberoi' goes on-air. The wait to the show has been a long one and the buzz surrounding the show has been huge. While 'Ishqbaaaz' is an absolute fan favorite, 'Dil Bole Oberoi' aims to set that benchmark too.

Over the past week, several questions were popped as to the Indian audience 'not' being acquainted with the idea of a 'spin-off,' which is extremely popular in the west and the fact as to why and where did this idea come from.

While we tried to clear all the doubts of several fans out there, we did have a question as to why is the idea of a 'spin-off' being considered to a show which albeit is extremely popular, but not a TRP topper.

And trying to figure out this answer, we got in contact with our extremely reliable sources who are related to both the shows, where we got our answer to this million dollar question.

According to the sources, the idea of getting a spin-off was proposed to cater to the Indian audiences per se. A human being's attention span cannot be long enough to sustain an hour-long daily soap. If 'Ishqbaaaz' was proposed to become a one-hour episode and if the same wasn't liked by the audiences, they would have switched to other shows on other channels. However, here, when the branding and the presentation of the show have been that of a different show, the idea completely changes. It is a fresh show with the same characters for the audience to look forward to. Therefore, the audience will automatically look forward to 'Ishqbaaaz' first and then wonder what 'new things' are going to happen on 'Dil Bole Oberoi.'

Well, after knowing this, all of this makes total sense, doesn't it? The show is certainly all set to make history today and we are sure, things are only on the upside for the people associated with the show.

For the records DBO is not India's first spin-off!!!There was a spin-off before but not on a big scale!!!!

Secondly, DBO is not Ishqbaaz's spin-off, it is a clone!!!!

Today's episode proved it that all of Gul's leads fit the same mould!!!The moment Om was promoted to being the lead of a show, gone is the poet and artist and we have the same old ruthless businessman and bubbly girl back!!!!

Mind you DBO might have been a good show had we not already watched the same thing on Shivaay and Anika!!!!

But now it is like a rerun of the same story with new villains!!!!

By some stroke of luck or misfortune I came across this heaping pile of shit of an article.

1) Yes, Indian audience are the audience giving the crop on television ratings, but I don't think even the TRP audience are so dense as to not catch on quickly and understand the concept of a 'spin off' (or in this case, maybe more like a still-connected sister show). It's actually like a permanent Maha Sangram, nothing so confusing for Indian audiences to understand.

2) "A human being's attention span cannot be long enough to sustain an hour-long daily soap"

LMAO. Okay you want to say this about current Indian/TRP audience, fine. But not about human beings. Ekta Maiyya got her idea of dailies from American daytime which spanned an hour every weekday. And aside from American Daytime there are other examples through out the world of one-hour dailies.

Anyway, I agree it is a good strategy to have a tie-in show rather than an hour-long IB.
