February 15, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): “Sony’s ‘Bayttaab Dil Kee Tamanna’ will soon close its shop and go off-air on the 25th of this month. Apparently, the TRPs of the show which were once sky rocketing are now plunging to an all time low. Thus the channel has decided to replace the show”, if sources are to be believed,
Sony’s ‘Bayttaab Dil Kee Tamanna’, a venture by Balaji Telefilms that sheds light on the story of a girl who gets trapped in a game of fate similar to the infamous case of Shiney Ahuja will soon see its end.
“The show might be replaced by Sony’s next ‘Godh Bharai’. The promos for the same are on air and talks are on-going that it might take ‘Bayttaab’s time slot. Even though the end track has not been decided, but the show will end on a happy note,” adds the source.
We called Aman Verma and he confirmed the news, “Yes! The show is going off-air and I was aware of the same. It is very sad that the show could not do well in the long run due to dropping TRPs. But it was great working with Balaji, as I always have a good rapport with producer Ekta Kapoor and thus I enjoyed working in the show.”
“I am not aware about the end of the track, as when a show is abruptly pulled off, the track is always winded up,” adds Aman. We tried calling Karan Kundra but he didn’t revert!
Its seems that Sony continues its tradition of pulling off serials before their 1000th or 2000th episode and does not make an exception with ‘Bayttaab Dil Kee Tamanna’.
