"While we understand that the decision to end this serial will be disappointing to those whose creative energies are vested in it, namely, its crew and cast, we (as a channel) are convinced that we will be better served by focusing instead on developing viewer interest in our upcoming, new shows."
Channel Wants The Artists, Producers & Fans To Support The Viewership
"We are grateful to all the artists, producers and fans of our shows and request you to graciously support the viewership of our newer ventures."
Suyyash Rai, who was to return to the show post leap, was shocked with the channel's decision. He was quoted by Spotboye as saying, "If this is happening (show going off air), then I am shocked. I was waiting to re-enter the show after the leap."
Suyyash Further Added…
"Tejaswi is a close friend so I wanted to be a support to her and work with her. I wanted the show to do well as a lot of hard work goes into a show when it is launched. So many people including technicians will lose their jobs when the show shuts."
