Zee TV’s Punar Vivah- Ek Nayi Umeed which never really boasted of great numbers like its first season helmed by Gurmeet Choudhary and Kratika Senger might be on its way out. According to sources, this Shashi Sumeet Productions’ project might wrap up by December or January (2014).
If this news is correct, it could spell bad news for two actors Eijaz (Shubh Vivah) and Parul Chauhan (Sapna Babul Ka...Bidaai) who had been banking on this project to resurrect their respective careers. Parul incidentally had replaced Rubina Dilaik.
When Rubina’s character Divya was eased out, producer Sumeet Mittal had said that, “she was not removed but the character had met its logical ending.”
Now, it’s a different thing that Parul came back as Divya later.
Both Eijaz and Parul were not available for comment.
When we contacted lead actor Karan V Grover he said, “Our TVTs are doing good and I don’t think it should go off-air.”
We also spoke to Zee TV, Head of Fiction, Ajay Balwankar who denied that the show is going off-air saying, “Numbers of Punar Vivah 2 have gone up this week. We are ahead of Bade Acche Lagte Hain (Sony Entertainment Television) at the same slot.”
Producer Sumeet Mittal remained unavailable for comment.
