Time leaps and death of the lead actors or cast is an essential ingredient to lift the TRPs of the show and reinvent them. Many serials have taken this brave decision of time leaps. However, the fate of these shows post time leap is a question of debate!
Let's first take the latest news on ‘Qubool Hai'! After facing a lot of flak, the serial is now set for a 22-year leap. Asad and Zoya will be shown killed by Tanveer. This is a big disappointment for fans of Zoya played by Surbhi Jyoti! Recently, ‘Madhubala' showed RK and Madhubala dying in a bomb blast and take a time leap of 20 years, though the characters got to (thankfully) play their age with Dhrashti re-appearing as RK and Madhubala's daughter! RK a.k.a Vivian was initially not planned as part of the show post the time leap but fans of the star brought Vivian playing a different role from before!
‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya' is all geared up for a double twist- Rucha Hasabnis playing the character Raashi is quitting the show and reportedly, her character will end up dying! Moreover, Radha's character is slated to end too, showing her falling from the cliff. With a time leap planned, rumours are also rife that show will end in the coming months! Life for Aditya (Nakuul Mehta) is getting tougher with his wife Pankhuri (Disha Parmar) to be shown dying in a landslide in the serial ‘Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha' alongside a time leap of 2 years! However, Pankhuri fans could keep guessing whether Pankhuri will come back!
More controversies surround ‘Saraswatichandra' as Gautam Rode has put in his paper and the makers are all ready to show ‘Saras' death! Now whether a time leap is on the cards remains a question! Life OK's serials- ‘Do Dil Ek Jaan' and ‘Ek Boond Ishq' are also rumoured to show some or both lead characters dying with a time leap on the cards too! Most shows experience a decline in TRPs with time leaps as fans miss their favourite stars! Will history repeat itself?
