Annirudh Dave's dream NDTV Imagine show, Raajkumar Aaryyan has turned into a nightmare as the fantasy tale is being wrapped up within the next few episodes. When we spoke to this 21 year old lead from Rajasthan, he confirmed the news saying “What has to happen will happen!! All I want to say is that I had a great time playing this valiant prince”.
Raajkumar Aaryyan to go off air...
The show which was supposed to be initially penciled for 52 episodes is being ended quickly for lack of TRPs. Readers must have noticed the sudden change in story pace from the time first mani was found. The remaining 6 mani's are being found in single episodes. This was done, for the creative's had taken a call to end the show by then.

According to our khabru, channel honchos feel that fantasy genre is limited to children. Plus the show being a weekly gets very difficult for the audiences to come back. 
However it seems that Annirudh does not buy this argument for he is reported to be very unhappy with the way the show was publicized. Our source over heard him saying that even Doordarshan shows get better publicity. He supposedly feels that, had Aaryyan got good publicity like in the initial period, it would have rocked. The source added that nobody knows of the amount of hard work we have put in, like the use of the latest camera technology etc.

The channel kabru rejected the above argument by saying they work on strategy where shows are given publicity according to their worth. Raajkumar Aaryyan has not been able to replicate the success of say a Radha ki Betiyaan, the person from the channel remarked.
The channel is working out on some alternate programming for the Wednesday evening slot. But in the mean time, Raajkumar may be replaced by either a repeat or the dailies may be extended to an hour.
So what's next for Annirudh? “The moment I get free from this Sphere Origin contract, I will look at other options”, says he. Did the lack of TRP affect your popularity?  “No I did get a lot of fame up north”,  he ended.
