According to our source, "Since the time Bebo's lookalike has come up in the show, the TRPs have gradually fallen down. It is therefore assumed that this story track is not appealing to the audience. The SLB creative team will most probably chuck the look alike of Bebo and concentrate on Bebo - Amrit romance track. This is their last ditch effort to save the show its spot."
Adds the source, "Apparently, Ekta Kapoor is vying for the 10 pm slot for one of her upcoming shows. Her interest only makes matters worse for the show. Her show Sarvagunn Sampann on Imagine is slated in the 7 pm slot, a first for Balaji's any show. The production house was not very happy when Imagine chalked Sarvagunn Sampann in for 7 pm. So Ekta's impatience to reign the prime time slot, at least on another channel is immense."
"Sabki Laadli Bebo has been given a deadline of around mid- May to improve the TRPs or give up their time slot," the source further adds.
However, the source clarifies that the show will definitely not go off air. The source says, "Sabki Laadli Bebo recently got an extension. So it will not go off air inspite of uninteresting TRPs. Just get a new timing."
We tried contacting Anuj Sachdeva (Amrit) and Shivshakti Sachdev(Bebo). But, both remained unavailable for comments.
