According to a report in Bombay Times, around six TV shows are going off air in the span of the next three months.

On the other hand, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein has been on air since 2013. The show made TV actor Divyanka Tripathi extremely popular and her character Ishi Maa became one of the most iconic TV characters.
