Here's some bad news for fans of Barun Sobti, who were eagerly waiting for the "Iss Pyaar ko Kya Naam Doon?" actor's comeback show "Satya Ki Kiran." According to reports, the show, which was supposed to go on air soon, has been scrapped.
"Satya Ki Kiran," was said to be a finite thriller series of 26 episodes and was supposed to air on weekends. However, in the last few months, the show underwent several changes, from extending the number of episodes from 26 to 120 and making it into a daily soap. It was also rechristened as "Mohra."
And now, the latest report said that the show has been scrapped due to clashes between the production house and the channel. While the channel wanted the show to run daily, the production house wasn't convinced with it as they had a fixed budget for 26 episodes. Unable to come to a consensus, the channel apparently decided to scrap the show.
Earlier reports said that "Satya Ki Kiran" would see Barun play the role of a cop named Satya, who in one of his important missions, would encounter a con girl named Kiran, played by Shivani Tomar, and the duo would eventually fall in love.
The cast and crew had been shooting in different parts of Delhi and Noida. However, for the past one month, the shooting has been stalled. "It's been almost a month since we haven't been shooting in Delhi. Everyone has come back to Mumbai and we are clueless as to what's happening. We have just been asked to wait for now as the future of the show looks uncertain," an actor told the Times of India.
However, a source from the channel held the production house responsible for the show getting scrapped. "Even though they had shot many scenes in the NCR region, the production house didn't have a proper script or even the storyline of the first few episodes in hand. Random scenes had been shot. The channel didn't want to go ahead with a half-baked show, and so decided to can the show."
When the daily contacted Myleeta Aga Williams, from the production house, she denied the report of the show getting scrapped.
