Zee TV's "Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani", which has Drashti Dhami and Siddhant Karnick in lead roles, recently made headlines when reports of the show going off-air surfaced.
However, latest report suggests that the news of the popular show coming to an end was just a rumour. Parul Chaudhary, who plays the role of Kokila in the show, refuted the buzz.
Chaudhary clarified that the TRP ratings are getting better and hence, the daily soap will continue entertaining the viewers. "All of us were shocked when these rumours were surfacing around. But, the whole team had a meeting and we sat down together, where the makers clarified that the show is not going off-air. The TRP concerns and everything related to it is now getting better. So, I am glad its not happening," Chaudhary told India Forums.
Earlier reports claimed that the constant decrease in the ratings had forced the show makers to consider the idea of pulling the plug. The report further stated that the show is likely to go off air in March.
"It's a sorry story for the show. Investment is huge and the production house has tried every trick in the book to improve the ratings but nothing has worked so far in the show's favour. Actors are putting in their best and are a disappointed lot," a source had earlier told Asian Age.
Karnick, who plays the lead role of Ranaji, was also disappointed with the buzz of the show going off air. "Yes, I have heard the buzz and hope it's not true. We are putting in a lot of hard work and feel very dejected when we hear something like this. The show means the world to me," the actor told the daily.
However, with Chaudhary clarifying the news of the show not going off-air, fans can now heave a sigh of relief and continue watching the love story of Ranaji and Gayatri (Dhami).
