Gulaal faces the heat once again
The news of the Gujarati family saga Gulaal on Star Plus going off air is doing the rounds for quite sometime now. However the latest buzz is that the show might draw curtains in the last week of August.
Our source informs, “Gulaal is nearing its end now. The makers tried their best to save the show from going off-air but the ratings kept on dipping continuously. In fact the eight-year leap that was brought in helped to boost the TRP but could not make much of a difference. Initially the show was scheduled to go off air on August 19 but the channel has given a week’s extension to the production house. So now it is slated to go off air some time in the last week of August. Diya Baati is tipped to replace Gulaal.”
Another source informs, “Since the show is not doing very badly the channel may retain it. However the slot it occupies currently is an extremely crucial one so the channel is considering of shifting it to an afternoon slot.”
We spoke to Manasi Parekh (Gulaal) who said, “We really don’t have any idea about the show going off-air. Actors are generally the last to know about it but we are just hoping for the best and I feel very proud to be associated with the show.”
