Though happy with the completion of 200 episodes, scriptwriter of the show Sampurn Anand also seemed to be in a sad mood, “the show was very close to my heart as the storyline of the show was on dowry and how women gets exploited because of that. I being from a small town and especially from Bihar have come across many such incidents so I know how bad it is .I have been writing the show right from the beginning and it feels really nice that the show has completed 200 episodes. When we started the show on the time slot of 7.30p.m., we had no idea that the show will have such good TRP"s at this time slot. I think because of Bandhan even other shows realized that timeslot doesn"t matter, what matters is the content and the storyline. Everyone is sad that the show is going off air but I guess the producers don"t want to stretch it much unnecessarily because the original story has already got over."
