Zee’s Maa, produced by Shakuntalam Telefilms will be seeing its untimely end, courtesy its low TRP’s.An actor on terms of anonymity confirmed that, “Yes, it is true that Maa is drawing to a close.The show never got the numbers it promised, and one of the reasons being that the channel had planned the launch of Maa initially in a prime time slot. A slot as early as 7 PM did not fit into the bill as far as the concept was concerned”. Now Maa will be winding up on April 17th, and a unique game show Ghar Ghar Mein will be replacing it.
Maa had a very good ensemble cast of Chitrapama, Amarr Upadhyay, Vineet Raina, Jhanvi Cheddha etc.
According to our source, “Ghar Ghar Mein will launch on 20th April at the 7 PM slot. It will be a game show hosted by Vipul Roy and Manish Paul, where they will be going from house to house and will put the family members, basically housewives on the hot seat with their impromptu questions on various aspects. They will give away prizes too, to the most deserving family member”.
We messaged Producer Shyamashis Bhattacharya to confirm the news of Maa, but he remained unavailable for comments.
Even Ajay Bhalwankar, Programming Head, Zee was also not available to comment.
