Sanjay Upadhyay, VP, Development and Programming, confirms this and states, "Yes, we are going off air with Salaam Zindgi. This serial had similarities with Udaan, but we tried our best to re-construct it in a different way. Even after trying various options, the show did not get any response from the public, and so we decided to take it off air".
Sanjay Wadhwa, the producer of the show says, "There was only one similarity between the two serials, and it was that the story line revolved around a lady inspector. Whatever it was, the show has not been accepted by the public and it is now being called off". Well, this is the result of serving 'Old wine in a new bottle'!!
