Star Plus’ Tuj Sang Preet Lagaayi Sajna of Balaji Telefilms has been facing flak of late due to its low numbers, but if sources are to be believed, there is a high chance of the show going off air in April. “Recently, Tuj Sang was tossed from its 10 PM prime time slot to the afternoon band, and will be aired from March 16th at the 1 PM slot, replacing Kumkum. But this might only be a temporary phase, as the channel has now taken a final call to end the show”, quips our source.As reported by Telly Buzz earlier, Tuj Sang had received two prior warnings from the channel to deliver, but nothing worked right for the unit.
Lead actor Pooja Bose accepted that she has heard of the news of the show going off air, but said, “I have not got a confirmation from either the channel or the production house”.
However, when we called Keertan Adhyantaya, GM and EVP, Star Plus for a confirmation on the same he said, “The show has been shifted to the afternoon slot, and till now we have not decided anything about the termination of the show”.
We messaged Ekta Kapoor asking the same, but she replied with a text message that read, “Tuj Sang is moving to an afternoon slot, but its not ending”.
However an actor on terms of anonymity confirmed to us that , “The show will be going off air on April 10th, and this is the news we have got”.
It looks as though Ekta Kapoor is going thro’ a very critical phase, as the Queen of Soaps who once had lot many shows in her kitty on Star Plus will now be left with just Kis Desh to deal with if this news comes true..
For now, it looks like viewers will get to see Tuj Sang at the 1 PM slot for the next few weeks..
