Has the finite series been shortened to an even smaller run?
Star Plus was guns blazing back in February, this year as it launched two mega shows, ‘Dil Boley Oberoi’ (the spin-off of ‘Ishqbaaaz’) and supernatural mystery thriller, ‘Koi Laut Ke Aaya Hai’.
Talking about ‘Koi Laut Ke Aaya Hai’, the show was launched with a bundle of expectations as it boasted a one-of-a-kind storyline and had an alluring ensemble cast with actors, Surbhi Jyoti and Shoaib Ibrahim playing the leads, Geetanjali and Abhimanyu respectively.
Since, its inception, the show has somehow struggled to fetch huge numbers considering the scale of the show. Also, the ratings have been encouraging at times but discouraging otherwise.
And recently, several fans were shocked when reports about the show going off-air so soon, hit the web.
It is no secret that the show is indeed a finite series and will go off-air in August, but it was being said that the show will probably go off-air sooner than anticipated. There were also reports that ‘Koi Laut…’ may get replaced by the upcoming Keith Sequeira-Sanjeeda Shaikh starrer, ‘Love Ka Hai Intezaar.’
However, a reliable source from the set told us, “Sanjeeda and Keith’s show is a daily, so there is no possibility of ‘Koi Laut Ke Aaya Hai’ going off air so soon. Having said that, nobody on the set has received any such information from the makers or the channel.”
We also contacted actress, Sreejita De, who said, “I recently resumed shooting after a break of 4 days and nothing of this nature has been notified to us yet. The show is a finite series and is scheduled to have around 50 episodes. We are currently shooting the 19th-20th episode and in fact, new plot twists and turns are being brought in time, to keep the spice going.”
She also added, “Not only that, we also have a new set of characters who will be introduced as the story progresses, so if there was any truth to the ‘off-air’ news, that wouldn’t be the case. We are sure that the show will complete what it is scheduled to.”
Phew! The fans of the show can certainly heave a sigh of relief now.
