Barely four months after
it was launched, Sacchitanand production’s first soap Mera Sasural is coming
to an end.
the news, writer and producer Anjana Sood says, “The decision to pull off the
show was taken yesterday. The lead actress Urmila Kanetkar couldn’t give us enough
dates thus we were left with no option but to call off the show.”
couldn’t they find Urmila’s replacement? Anjana replies, “Finding a replacement
would have called for promotional expenses. Besides, I feel the time slot (7.30
pm) also didn’t work in our favour.”
It’s not all loss for Anjana
as they will be producing a new show for the same channel. “We’re pulling off
Mera Sasural but producing a new show for Sahara One. That was the agreement
with the channel. However, the new show wouldn’t be in the same time slot. Plus,
it will have an entire new star cast,” she signs off.
