Says our source, "The show Tumhari Paakhi produced by Shashi & Sumeet Mittal is a fixed 100 episodes format show. The story which will follow the original novel Naba Bidhan by Sarat Chandra Chhatopadhyay has a fixed script and the makers are going as per the same. The show should wrap up by March end and 28th March could be the last episode."
"The show also has lots of outdoor shoots and due to the fixed format and locked script many of the future episodes too have been shot in advance whereas the permanent set of the inside of a grand house is set up in Film city," concludes our source.
While no one from the channel was available for comment, producer Shashi Mittal without giving away a fixed date accepts that it is a fixed episode show and says, "Yes, Tumhari Paakhi is a show which has a definite end to it and it will not go on and on. It depends on how we narrate the story but I can't say whether it will be 100 or 120 or 140 episodes. That is how the channel had commissioned it and we have developed it similarly."
And going by the way it looks on screen and the response it is getting from the audience, the makers sure seem to have done justice to it.
