One of SAB TV’s longest running shows is coming to an end in mid-September.
Lead actor Gaurav Chopra insists that the army school drama will draw to a logical end. SAB TV, which is slowly switching to a comedy channel, introduced funny elements in ‘Left Right Left’, but even these didn’t work for the channel to win in the GEC race.
When it launched, two years ago, the cast comprised biggies like Rajeev Khandelwal and Shveta Salve and a promising gang of youngsters as the cadets. Rajeev quit, however, the TRPs started slipping.
A few months ago, a new bunch of cadets was introduced, including Diya Chopra and Swati Taldar. Swati blames the weak storyline. “I felt shortchanged,” says the actress who plays Shveta Salve’s on-screen sister.
Gauri Pradhan and Hiten Tejwani were brought in to raise the TRPs, but that didn’t work either. “Even Smriti Iraani couldn’t lift the TRPs of Teen Bahuraniyaan,” shrugs Diya. She adds that it was a mini-feat on part of the producers to keep the daily going for two years.
