Given the shock value of seeing Jennifer Winget in a negative avatar, Beyhadh (2016) became an overnight success. While the serial had good intent, given the times of fast-paced shows, there was hardly any buzz about it. However, a controversy in the initial days with Shinde blaming makers for exploiting actors led to a negative buzz. (Photo: PR Handout)
Mahesh Bhatt made a big comeback on television, backing the ambitious project Dil Jaise Dhadke…Dhadakne Do. The season was pulled off the air and a new season kickstarted, which too is doing average on the TRP list. Also, the show being aired on Star Bharat, which has a relatively lesser viewership, didn’t help its cause. Dadi Amma… Dadi Amma Maan Jaao

Several shows went off the air this year.With the digital medium churning out impressive content, the audience is now spoilt for choice. The show only aired 38 episodes, and was brought to a halt due to the pandemic-induced lockdown. Even Ekta Kapoor, while announcing the show’s end, had confessed that the team hadn’t put much effort into the script. Even before it could complete 100 episodes, it was pulled off the air. After shoots were brought to a halt due to lockdown, the channel announced that it would not bring back the daily owing to its low ratings. Wanting to make use of its popularity, the makers launched its second season in December 2019. A not too impressive star cast with average performance led to the show’s early exit. And hence, they take no time to reject television shows. (Photo: ZEE5)
