While almost every shoot is desperately waiting to restart as the lockdown ends, three shows have faced a rather unfortunate end and won't even see the light of the day again.
Popular Sony TV shows Beyhadh 2, Ishaaron Ishaaron Mein and Patiala Babes have been axed and won't return once things get normal again and shoot resumes.
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.”
In an interview with BT, producer of Patiala Babes, Rajita Sharma 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 concerened parties, including producer, actors, writers and the rest of the crew."
Ashnoor Kaur, who played the lead of Patiala Babes 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."
