Due to the unexpected breakout of coronavirus, the government has imposed a nationwide lockdown in the country. As everyone is in a house arrest, production of TV shows and films has been completely halted. Now according to the latest statement issued by Sony TV, the channel will axe down Beyhadh 2, Patiala Babes and Ishaaron Ishaaron Mein post lockdown.
In an exclusive statement issued to BT, the channel said that the three “are finite fiction shows and the nature and the pace of their narrative is time-bound.”
It further stated, “Given that all shoots have been stalled since March, owing to the unprecedented situation we are in, these shows couldn’t shoot their logical ends. All the three shows have had a good spell and would have paved way to newer narratives eventually, had the shoots been functional. Having said that, keeping the best interests of all in mind and in joint agreement with the producers, it has been decided to terminate these shows, as of now.”
Meanwhile, BT spoke to Rajita Sharma, the producer of ‘Patiala Babes’, who said, “Ours was always a finite series, but unfortunately, we are unable to shoot the remaining episodes because of the lockdown. None of us know when we will be in a position to resume shooting. So, it was a mutual decision to pull it off air.”
Prateek Sharma, producer of ‘Beyhadh 2’ said, “We all are in an unprecedented situation here and I would totally agree and go ahead with channel’s decision in this matter as whatever they will decide will be in the best interest of all the concerned parties, including producer, actors, writers and the rest of the crew.”
Lead actress of ‘Patiala Babes’, Ashnoor Kaur said, “I am not able to digest the fact that the show is over and we won’t be working as a team. It is sad but I am happy that I got to portray a role like Mini and given the circumstances I think it was in everyone’s interests.”
As a matter of fact, All the three shows were not doing well since the past couple of months and were already being considered to go off air. So, it doesn’t come as a complete surprise.
