Since news about Sony Entertainment Television’s ‘Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai’ going off-air emerged over the weekend, fans have found the news difficult to digest. Similarly, the actors in the show have been taken aback by the channel’s decision to pull it off-air in August.
Talking to Bombay Times, Randeep Rai who plays Sameer in the 90s based drama said, “I have lived the character and I am not exaggerating when I say that my identity has only been Sameer for the last two years. I will need some time to cope with this.”
His co-star, Ashi Singh, known for playing Naina, added, “When I was offered Naina’s role, I was told that she is a simple, non-glamorous girl, and at that time, I was a bit reluctant because every other girl on TV is stylish and glamorous.”
She added, “I feel that the show could have gone on for another year. However, now that it’s ending, it has given me more confidence to move on to other things.”
Producer Sumeet Mittal gave his take on the show ending. He said, “I feel that Yeh Un… has run its course; we didn’t want to bring it to a level where the viewers feel that it’s dragging. Also, it was based on our (he and his wife Shashi Mittal) life story and struggles, and after a certain point, the audience don’t enjoy watching the struggles for too long.”
‘Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai’ wraps up around 16th August 2019.
