The future of lead actor Shiv Subramanium of Colors’ troubled show ‘Mukti Bandhan’ is looking uncertain.
Shiv who plays I M Virani could be replaced by another actor due to the ratings fall. Ashutosh Rana and Chetan Pandit are names that are being linked as possible replacements.
A source told TellyChakkar, “The channel was not very happy with Shiv۪s performance in the show. But things did not change for the better and now the production house is chalking out plans to improve the show۪s TRP. They are even considering replacing Shiv with some other face. Due to low TRPs the show was shifted to 11pm slot but if the numbers don۪t better then it will be finally pulled off air.”
When contacted Shiv denied the news and said, “I have been discussing about the upcoming tracks with the production house. As far as the current track is concerned I will be shown leaving for London.” However, the actor seemed clueless when asked why he wasn۪t part of the recently shot National Anthem for the channel’s Independence Day plans.
‘Mukti Bandhan’ moves to the late night 23:00 slot from tonight and makes way for ‘Parichay’ at 21:30.
