Imagine…Dil Se will be bidding adieu to its long running drama ‘Jyoti’ later this month and launching something new in its place.
On Friday 24th December, the channel will air the last episode of ‘Jyoti’
‘Jyoti’ started her journey on Imagine in early 2009 and it came with a promise to offer something different from the usual ‘saas-bahu’ drama. It was the story of a middle class girl ‘Jyoti’, who was portrayed as a symbol of ‘women empowerment’.
However, after nearly two years, the viewers can expect a happy ending and the lead couple Jyoti and Kabir will unite again, strengthening their bond of marriage.
Saurabh Tewari, Head of Fiction, Imagine TV, said that they wanted to give a logical conclusion to this popular show of the channel. The show spoke against domestic violence and women education and the lead actress of the serial, Sneha Wagh has also done it in real life through the ‘Jyoti Foundation’ for educating women.
In its place launches ‘Armanon Ka Balidaan-Aarakshan’. The new show deals with the controversial issue of reservation in government jobs. The theme of the show itself is very controversial and even before the launch; the show is facing another controversy because of its title. Filmmaker Prakash Jha expressed his unhappiness over the title as he is making a film on the same line.
However, Saurabh Tewari stated that both parties have presented their view point to the Association of Motion Pictures and Television Producers (AMPTP). Now, the decision of AMPTP is awaited but the show is launching amidst this confusion.
With ‘Armanon Ka Balidaan-Aarakshan’ featuring some violent scenes, the channel has safely decided to schedule the show in the 21:30 slot in the UK. This means ‘Kitani Mohabbat Hai…Wahi Jodi Nahi Love Story ‘ will move to the old ‘Jyoti’ slot of 19:30 from Monday 27th December.
