Colors thriller-drama Bepannaah, starring Jennifer Winget and Harshad Chopda, after a good start, has dropped a lot, on the ratings front. It began with 2.4 and has dropped to as low as 1.2 for a while, but is now hovering around 1.6.
The story has also recently undergone a change, with both Zoya and Aditya leaving their tumultuous past behind and starting fresh with each other.
In this scenario, we have heard that the show might be heading for a natural end, sometime in September. Those in the TV trade know that shows are always initially promoted as limited (like in the Bepannah case as well), and if they gain traction, are extended.
In keeping with high journalistic tradition, rather than breaking the news prematurely, we decided to touch base with the cast and production house.
Accordingly, we spoke to both Harshad and Producer Sunil Mehta of Cinevistaas Ltd, who both rubbished the off air news.
Harshad replied, “No, No, bakwas”, to our text.
Mr Mehta, of Cinevistaas Limited, said, “Most certainly not, we have just celebrated the telecast of the 105th episode last Friday.”
We also hope that the rumours are false, and Bepannaah continues to provide wholesome entertainment as before!!
