The popular fiction ‘Jodha Akbar’ on ZEE TV will make way for new show ‘Tashan-e-Ishq’ early August, its been confirmed.
The final episode of ‘Jodha Akbar’ will be broadcast in India on 7th August 2015 and new age romance ‘Tashan-e-Ishq’ will launch in the Monday to Friday 20:00 slot from Monday 10th August (Tuesday 11th August in UK).
ZEE TV Business Head Pradeep Hejmadi, said, ���Being a historical serial, ��Jodha Akbar�۪ had a finite storytelling to it. It had completed its quantum of storytelling.�
Offering a somewhat different take, Creative Head Sujata Rao, said, ���There were a lot of historical points which were still to be explored, but I really can�۪t comment on the channel�۪s decision to shut down the show. We�۪ve had a wonderful experience and we want to end the show on a good note. We hope that ratings increase in the final episodes and people would then crave for a second season of ��Jodha Akbar�۪.�
���Maybe the audiences were looking forward to a continuation of the Jodha-Akbar story, but how long can you pull off a Jodha-Akbar? This was not fiction, but a piece of history and so we have to move with it,� Rao added.
