Pavitra Rishta to go off air!

The popular soap will end soon owing to frequent generation leaps which the lead actors don’t want to be a part of

When the story of a serial lags, or there is nothing much left to say that is creatively satisfying, TV soap producers resort to the tried and tested tactic of going in for a generation leap to keep the show fresh. Unfortunately, too many such leaps may at times put its actors off, which seems to be the case with Pavitra Rishta.

And so, although the show is doing good TRP-wise, it might be taken off air come February. The lead actor of the show, Ankita Lokhande’s decision to not continue with the soap, may be one of the main reasons that it is being made to wrap up. There has been no word from the producers of the show including Ekta Kapoor, but a source revealed that the makers are looking for closure, “The show is likely to go off air. Though the TRP for Pavitra Rishta is quite good, the serial has taken quite a few leaps, the last one being in December. Now, there is other generation leap in the offing. The story needs to end somewhere.”

Well, without Sushant Singh Rajput and Ankita Lokhande, the show would seem quite hollow, even if a leap were to be taken, wethinks. Yet, it must be tough for Ekta Kapoor considering the show was her baby. So let’s see if the shrewd producer has a trick up her sleeve. Else, its goodbye Pavitra Rishta!
