Star Plus will soon be pulling the plug on two of its main shows - Naamkarann and Tu Sooraj Mein Saanjh Piyaji.
It can be recalled that Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piyaji is the sequel to the channel's flagship show Diya Aur Baati Hum. In fact, the entire plot of Tu Sooraj... was based on the life of Kanak (Rhea Sharma), daugther of Sandhya and Sooraj (Anas Rashid).
Also, Tu Sooraj was one of those shows that was a part of the channel's Star Dopahar concept and was the only show to have escaped the axe when Star Dopahar shows were pulled off air, for low TRPs.
The show's TRPs saw a substantial increase when it shifted to the evening 7:30 pm prime time slot vacated by Saath Nibhana Saathiya.
But sadly for fans of the show, it will telecast its last episode on the 1st of June.
And meanwhile, there is a last minute entry in the show and that is of actress Aanchal Khurana.
Aanchal, who recently wrapped up the shoot for her previous show, Zee TVs's Zindagi Ki Mehek, has been roped in to play the role of a medical college professor. She will be against the idea of love and this will show its effects on Kanak who joins the college.
With Kanak coming late to her classes, Uma (Avinesh Rekhi) coming to pick her up and drop her and with the two romancing in the campus, this will rub Aanchal's character the wrong way and she will turn against Kanak.
We contacted Aanchal who confirmed the story to us and said, "I am a part of Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piyaji now. I will be seen in a pivotal cameo in the show. I got a call for Tu Sooraj... on my last day of shoot of Zindagi Ki Mehek."
When we quizzed her about entering the show just weeks before it is pulled off air, Aanchal said, "All that does not matter to me. Work is work, be it even for a few days. Plus, working with Star is a huge opportunity, so I could not let this pass. Rest assured, I'll give my 100% to Tu Sooraj..."
