Will ‘Dekha Ek Khwaab’ go off air?

The channel is not happy with the way the show has been performing. Neither are we, actually

A li’l birdie chirped the other day that Aruna Irani’s TV show Dekha Ek Khwaab is going off air soon. Apparently the channelwallahs don’t like the fact that the show has failed to increase ratings. As of the week ending May 19, Sony is at fourth position, behind Star Plus, Zee and even Colors. DEK replaced Kaun Banega Crorepati 5 last November and in the months since it has not been able to fill the game show’s big shoes. Or even any other show’s much smaller shoes. Since Sony doesn’t have Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa to bank on any more – Colors has bagged it this season – the channel needs daily soaps to engage its viewers. Something like Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, whose promos have already made viewers curious enough to tune in. Kuch Toh Log Kahenge has been shifted to make space for BHBK, Adaalat has been rescheduled for the sake of Indian Idol 6. But since its ratings are not in the same league as that of the other two shows, DEK will have to bow out altogether in favour of a more interesting show.

Frankly, we are glad. DEK is a drag. From the time the first promo aired, we knew that Moniya was going to be crowned Princess Maanayata. But it took seven long months for it to happen. When Udaybeer killed Akaash, we were relieved. Finally, the most insipid character on th eshow is bumped off! Only now Akaash has come back as a rude, arrogant lookalike Aryan Rai Choudhury and is even worse than his first avatar. The storyline is going nowhere and Rajmata’s machinations are yawn inducing. It’s time the show wrapped up and made way for KBC 6.
