Even with shows that underperform on the rating charts, it has seldom been the case that a show has been pulled off the plug in even less than two months. That is what's happening with Kuch Toh Hai - Naagin Ek Naye Rang Mein.
The show starring Krishna Mukherjee and Harsh Rajput in lead roles is going off-air and it has been a huge shock given how it only began last month.
While many have had their take to it, leading lady Krishna Mukherjee has finally opened up on the same in an interview with ETimes TV. She said, “Our show started on February 7 and I feel it was too premature to take it off air in just one and half months. It was important that the characters establish a connect with audience and then if the story didn’t click, they could have taken a decision. It was a new cast and we all deserved a little more time to make a connect.”
She added, “After five seasons of naagins, the makers decided to do something different and experiment with the concept of vampires and wolves, but viewers did not warm up to it. I feel people still want to watch saas-bahu sagas on television and even if shows come up with slightly different scripts, the saas-bahu angle is predominantly a part of every show. Audiences are just not ready to watch something different.”
When asked about how essentially she was playing an angel but had to play Naagin, she said, “In order for the show to connect with audiences, writers will have to bring newer twists. I loved playing a naagin, but I was not aware initially that I would have to play one. I am happy that I got to play the lead role and the production house gave me this beautiful opportunity after Ye Hai Mohabbatein. It is a dream for every actress to play a lead role and I gave it my best. It was a learning experience and felt like working with family because I have worked with the production house before. I am looking forward to newer beginnings, hopefully, something more interesting will come up. We will work even more hard to connect with audiences in the future."
We are sure about that indeed.
