NDTV Imagine has decided to shuffle it week day’s prime time band. The principal change sees the winding up of Hats Off productions’ EK Packet Umeed. Tony and Deeya Singh’s Radhaa Ki Beityaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi will now be a daily while there’ll be change in timings for shows such as Dharam Veer and Main Teri Parchhain Hoon.
Speaking on their show, Aatish Kapadia of Hats Productions, says, “It is wrong to say that the show is going off air or it will be discontinued. The show will wind up in its existing hourly format. You can say that it’s like the end of the first season. The show will continue to telecast in its current format till September end.
We’re in talks with the channel to return with show again in a daily half hour format. The characters will remain the same but there will be a new story-telling. If these talks materialise then you will see the show again. However, it will take a month’s time before there’s any development. ”
While Aatish maintained that the show isn’t shutting down, actors Rupali Ganguly and Suhas Joshi didn’t hesitate in saying that that the show is indeed going off air and the shoot has stopped for the time being.
With regards to the other changes on the channel, a reliable source informs, “Radha Ki Betiyaan.. is set to become a daily. Dharam Veer will now telecast at 7.30 pm. Chand Ke Paar Chalo will launch on September 29 at 10.30 pm. That would mean that Main Teri Parchhain Hoon will be shifted to a different time slot.”
Meenakshi Sagar, Creative Director of Dharam Veer, too agreed that their show is likely to witness a change in time. Rajshri Productions’ Kavita Barjatya though denied any rescheduling of Main Teri Parchhain Hoon .
Programming Head, Imagine, Shailja Kejriwal refused to comment on the changes.
