Its tic-tac-toe again for Aek Chabhi Hai Padoss Mein

Star Plus’s weekly show Aek Chabhi Hai Padoss Mein is going to be pulled off yet another time but this time for an uncertain period of time. Earlier, in 2007, the show was pulled off for 9 weeks to make way for some special events, telecast of award functions and movies. The timing of the show too keeps changing.A source from the production house says, “When the show commenced it aired on Saturdays from 10:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Later it was shifted to Sundays in the same time-slot. But the channel had to skip it many a times as it had to telecast movies and award functions. Then it was made a bi-weekly and started airing on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm to 8:00 pm only to become a weekly show that airs on Fridays from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.”

“Though we have no clue about the status of the show we are keeping our fingers crossed. We are uncertain about the duration of the pull-off as it’s completely a channel’s prerogative. This is the second time the channel has pulled the show off. Last year the show was pulled off for 9 weeks. This time they may reschedule the show or shift it to Star One as happened in the case of Sshh Phir Koi Hai,” concludes the source.

Another source says, “The future of the show remains doubtful as the set of the show is demolished to make way for the shooting of a Bhojpuri movie.”

Nupur Alankar , an actress from the show confirms the news and says, “The show will be pulled off from 6 May, Friday. We have no clue about the extent of the pull off but the channel has asked us to hang on as they have assured us that they will bring the show back in a couple of weeks.”

So is she planning to take up any new show? Nupur says, “As an actor I am bound to be insecure as I am not aware when the show will return. I am eyeing new shows.”

Producer Anupam Kalidhar chose not to comment but said, “The show will be pulled off starting this Friday.”

Prem Kamath, Star India VP Marketing and Communications, remained unavailable for his comment.
