Sasural Simar Ka was to come to an end after a successful run of six years. However, if recent reports are to be believed, the show is unlikely to end that soon as the show just got an extension. Yes, this news must have come as a huge sigh of relief for all its ardent fans who were upset with it going off air. The show was reportedly going to be replaced by Arjun Bijlani and Aalisha Panwar’s show, Ishq Mein Mar Jawaan, but the makers have changed their plans. Looks like the time slot of the show will now be changed.
The last episode of the show was to air on September 19. The news of its extension was confirmed by actor Rohan Mehra who joined the show a few months ago. He divulged that the news took the team by surprise as a few of them had already made travel plans. In an interview with The Times Of India, Rohan said, “Yes, the show has got an extension. We aren’t shooting today as the creative team is now figuring out the story line ahead. It’s good news for the actors. However, this piece of news also came as a surprise to us as most of us had already made travel plans, including me, for next week as our last shoot date was to be this week.”
Now, it remains to be seen how the writers take the story forward. Furthermore, Rohan added that news of the show going off air were doing the rounds even before he joined the show. In an earlier interview with the leading daily, the younger actor had said, “We have been told that the show is going off air early this month. I am not shocked, as these rumours had been floating even before I became a part of it. Honestly, I had thought twice before taking it up, but every project involves a certain amount of risk. Come to think of it, there are new shows that end within a month as well. So, ‘SSK’ has been a short yet great journey for me, as I got to play a different character. There are no regrets; it’s better to be part of a show, which is ending on a high note.”
Well, all’s well that ends well. Sasural Simar Ka is not the only show that was to go off air but got an extension due to its popularity. Sony TV’s Beyhadh too was expected to end but got an extension till October due to its fame. Additionally, Kuch Rang Pyaar Ke Aise Bhi (KRPKAB) that went off air a week or two ago is all set to make a comeback due to public demand.
