Balaji Telefilms and Star India Pvt Ltd are again at loggerheads after Star decided to terminate the telecast of Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi from Nov 10. Balaji which produces the serial argues it as breach of contract by Star. Yeh Rishtha Kya Kehlata Hai is all set to step into time slot of one of the most successful Television shows ever.
Star had recently scrapped its exclusive content deal with Balaji and even sold back 26% equity to Ekta Kapoor. Another major area of concern for Balaji Teleflims is the drastic falling of its share price at the stock market after Star had scrapped the deal. Balaji which produces six serials for Star Plus currently is not denying legal actions against the Rupert Murdoch owned group.
Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi has been running for close to eight years and has telecast over 1800 episodes is a major flag bearer for the company starring all the top stars in Balaji ranks. With Kasautii Zindagii Kay and Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii already off air this will be a huge blow to Balaji Teleflims which is slowly loosing its tag of being the leader of Television market.
