Star Plus seemed to be having a midas touch going on for the past year or so where shows like Anupamaa, Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin and Imlie have been the success stories as we know them today. But what's interesting about the channel lately is that even with its other shows, they might not have been rating toppers but have developed a massive fan base online.
One of the latter lot has been Shaurya Aur Anokhi Ki Kahani. The show didn't have great TRPs but has developed an immensely loyal fanbase online. But for running the show, all thay matters is getting numbers on TV and as it didn't happen, we know how the show is all set to go off-air soon.
While it is still being worked whether it will continues digitally, actor Anuj Kohli who is a part of the show opened up on the show going off-air in seven months in an interview with ETimes TV.
He said, “I genuinely expected the show to last over a year at least. It’s sad that they are wrapping it up in just seven months."
Adding more on the decision, he said, “This decision has been taken by the makers of the show and the channel. Obviously, when a channel isn't satisfied with the TRPs, it axes a show. I guess it is the same with us. But I also feel that because the show is telecast 12 hours earlier on the app, our young viewers watch the show there. If we merge online and television TRPs, I’m sure we will have good numbers. But that's not how a channel calculates things, which is probably why we have to end our journey here. I will miss the show and the people on it.”
