Ekta Kapoor’ love affair with Star Plus
This 10 pm show was never generating TRP and the channel was repeatedly warning Balaji to shape up or ship out. Accordingly the channel has decided to shift Tuj Sang to 1 pm slot. However our sources say that this is only a stop gap arrangement. And it will end on 10th April.
When we contacted Star Plus, EVP and General Manager, Keertan Adyanthaya he said “The show has been shifted to the afternoon slot, and till now we have not decided anything about its termination.". Ekta Kapoor also confirmed only the time slot change.
Tuj Sang male lead actor, Kunal Verma also had no clue about his show ending. “ I only know that we are shifting to the afternoon band. On the reason why the channel may have shifted the time slot Kunal quipped ” Relationships between Balaji and STAR are not cordial anymore.” He also admitted that ratings of the above show had never clicked “May be there was a problem with the story”.
If this news is correct then only one Balaji show Kish Desh Main Hai Meraa Dil will remain on Star Plus. For the other 3 left over Ekta Kapoor shows i. e Karam Apna Apna(Afternoon slot) Kayamath and Kasturi ( Early evening weekend) are also scheduled to end very soon. A far cry from the days when Balaji content ruled STAR Plus. -Sampurn Media
