Star Plus had major expectations riding upon the comeback of one of it's most cult and popular shows of all time, Khichdi. The popular comedy show was making a comeback after 12 years to the small screen and it was expected to do wonders.
However, even though the show received decent reviews, the numbers haven't been too great along with the fact that IPL played an important role in the show's under-performing nature.
Nevertheless, in a conversation with maker Aatish Kapadia, based on the show not performing well and the current scenario of Indian TV, we asked him about what he thinks on the same and what is the future, according to him.
Aatish said, "See currently, I feel Charles Darwin's theory has been wronged completely (theory being - survival of the fittest). For some reason, the current scenario is survival of the worst and dirtiest. However, it is a cycle and this will change again. Suddenly, a different sensibility will come in, and the rating system will change. In 10 years, I see that appointment viewing is going to become redundant, and that I feel, will bring a different kind of television sensibility to itself."
He added, "Digital, which has already been on the constant rise, will take over and the idea of whatever you want to watch, you watch' will be the trend. Television, as an object will just become another device like your phone or tablet, where you will have different streaming platforms to choose from, and there may not be any broadcast per se. "
