Des Mein Nikla Hoga Chand, which once topped STAR Plus’

popularity charts is currently the channel’s least

performing soap. The channel has been in talks with the

producers of the soap, which was once the innovation of

Aruna Irani. However, she later walked away from the

drama due to health reasons.

The soap has been waning in the ratings for the past few

months but STAR is to give it one last chance to

resuscitate its future. First thing’s first, the soap

will be chopped in duration to a 30-minute weekly

capsule (currently it is shown on an hourly basis).

Contrary to reports, the channel will not be axing the

soap just yet. It has given it until April of 2005 to

see how the soap performs on its new focused storylines

surrounding Mahi’s revenge on Veer (Ankur Nayar) and

Heer’s (Neha Mehta) love saga. A decision will only be

made after that. Keep it with Biz Asia for the latest.
