Star Plus show Ishqbaaaz is one of the most popular show online as well as across the NRI diaspora. Ishqbaaz which has found a resounding resonance in the hearts of the youth has managed to strike it on the TRP Charts as well.
The trinity of lead pairs viz. Shivaay played by the popular Nakuul Mehta, Anika enacted by Surbhi Chandna, Omkara played by the experienced Kunal Jaisingh, Gouri played by Shrenu Parikh who has carved a niche for herself both online and off line, Rudra played by Leenesh Mattoo and Bhavya played by Mansi Srivatsava, new entrant to the team have gained the unstinted admiration and love of the viewers.
The light hearted show with its sparkling wit and hilarious punchlines has struck a chord in viewers heart. The story line of three brothers’ unconditional love and support for one another as well as the respect and deep love they have for their respective onscreen partners have endeared the show and the actors to one and all.
Ishqbaaz underwent a major upheaval with it splitting into two – One a mainline show and another a spin off, however simple economics forced the merging of the two shows back into one. This merger came with it being extended to one hour duration. This put pressure on the Ishqbaaaz team but they did deliver with elan.
But all this rigmarole came at a price. Ishqbaaz which was offering a consistent TRP before the split and merger has now become wobbly. The inconsistent TRP had given rise to quiet misgiving among the users who feared the imminent closure of the show.
Rumors began circulating about the possible ending or closure of Ishqbaaz due to poor TRP. The rumor gained credence when news came of Four Lions productions impending launch of new shows.
Soon news came of Star Plus giving notice to Ishqbaaz team and placing it under the scanner. It was said, Star Plus has given time until February 2018 to turn things around for Ishqbaaz. The news, predictably sent the viewer’s into Despair.
However, Gul Khan issued a clarification soon after to a portal, wherein she clearly and definitively denied the news of closure or that of Ishqbaaz being under scanner. Gul Khan further added that Ishqbaaz is poised for a high intensity, emotional drama with numerous exciting twists. Gul Khan further added that the channel has not given them any ultimatums, nor have they received any notice about the same.
The channel too confirmed that they are not in “mood” to pull the show off air. In fact a lot of high points have been planned for upcoming track.
Surely, this news and the denial of such news straight from the horse’s mouth will offer relief to the nervous fans of Ishqbaaz.
