Imagines Basera to end?
The buzz is that Basera, NDTV Imagine's show on changing family relationships focusing on five families hasn't been well-accepted by the audience and so the channel might pull it off.

According to people in the know, the channel is not happy with the way Sagar Arts is telling the story. Imagine further feels that the above production house while very good with mytho- fantasy ( Ramayan ,Vikram Betal) seems unable to deliver on the family drama space.

Producer Prem Sagar when contacted says, "Average TRP is 1. Tuesday's rating was 1.1 against Bandini which was 1.2 average. Basera is an eye opener for every family in India with regards to today's generation and the public will decide if the show has to go off air. The numbers are coming good in comparison to other NDTV shows."  If the show does end it will indicate that something really has gone wrong, for Basera has been on air only since August this year.

Pallavi Subhash who essays the protagonist Ram Kapoor's wife claims to have no knowledge of her show going off air. "All I know is that we have a good story and the ratings are not bad," she says.

Priya Bhatija who has not been seen in the show for some time is unhappy with the fact that her blocked dates are not being used. "I have been given a narration of how my character Nandini will make a comeback, but in TV you never know how things materialize in the face of TRP and track pressures. I don't know how Basera will pan out in the near term," she says. Priya further adds, " I will not be surprised if the show does end."

The source justifies the possible axing of Basera on the grounds that the channel has a number of new shows in the pipeline. The first would be "Raaz Pichhle Janam Ka." However our khabru refuses to speculate on whether this reality show on past life would take Basera's place for the channel is yet to decide on making it a weekly or daily.

All attempts to contact the elusive Ram Kapoor and the channel failed to elicit any response.

uvita @uvita 14 years ago I like Basera. It is a good show as it portrays today's generation and their behavior to parents. Its reality and an eye opener for all. I do not think it should end this soon.

Shamma Vanat @shamma92 14 years ago NOOOO this show can't be ended!!! I think its a really good show and the way KK are treated by their kids now is appalling. (BTW i'm a 17 yr old girl from the uk) I think its a really good eye opener and I also read on MSN India that people don't like Ram Kapoor and Pallavi Subhash's chemistry- who said that??? They are brilliant actors with really good chemistry between them!

Mango Bhai! @Lord-Mangeshwar 14 years ago Seriously, this show has been a stinker for NDTV Imagine... for a channel that has been doing great since the start of 2009, the last thing they need is a dud show like Besura. I'm not at all surpised that audiences have rejected it outright.

The characters are uninspiring, plain and boring... the story is a cheap rip-off of something that worked on the big screen. Baghban worked because it had QUALITY... Besura has nothing of the sort. Total miscasting makes the whole thing even more intolerable.

I'm a Gujju, and so I feel sad when I see how terrible the Gujju lines on Besura are -- the Gujju dialogue delivery is diabolical and fake to the core!

Hopefully NDTV can axe this crap quickly and bring on a REAL good show. Besura was a fail from day one. Every fan of NDTV should be pleased with this news! :-)

God bless.
