It's just been few weeks since Zee's Saat Phere, produced by Sphere Origin took a leap introducing a whole new set of new generation actors. But now, there is bad news coming for the entire unit as the show is tipped to go off air on May 22nd.
Confirming our news, Producer Sunjoy Wadhwa says, "Yes, it is true that Saat Phere is going off air in the third week of May". When asked him about the leap introduced recently, he quips, "Ya, I know. But even after all this, the show is winding up".
We called up Ali Merchant whose entry in the show has been really short lived. But the actor got a shock when we gave him the news, and said, "Is it? I do not have any confirmed news though I have heard that there is a possibility. I cannot say anything till I get an official confirmation from the channel or production house".
Ask him what is in store for him next, and Ali states, "If this show is going off air, I have one more venture to bank on. I will soon be returning in Sahara One's Ghar Ek Sapna. Let's see what more is in store".
Now, spare a thought for the two new faces Rachana Parulkar and Aamrapali who had just begun their journey of playing Saawri and Shweta respectively!! A nation wide audition had given them this very coveted role, and as they say the future of daily soaps is really unpredictable and the girls have faced just this…
If sources are to be believed, Ekta's Pavitra Rishtha will be replacing Saat Phere at the 9 PM slot. As reported earlier by Telly Buzz, Pavitra Rishtha has Ankita Lokhande playing the lead. "After Kasamh Se ended, Ekta wanted to regain her slot of 9 PM on Zee, and it looks like she will be successful in getting it in the days to come", concludes our source.
We tried calling Ajay Bhalwankar, Programming Head, Zee TV but he was unavailable..
With long-running shows Dulhann and Saat Phere ending, let's see whether Zee gains in numbers, courtesy their new shows...
