End of Anandi?By SAMPURN
Thursday, March 4, 2010
March 4 2010, (Sampurn Wire):One of the major high points in the life of the serial, Balika Vadhu, was the death of Pratap (Jehangir Vakil). That incident brought in TRPs of almost 9. Now the audience is hooked again to the serial they so loved once upon a time, and largely ignored for the better part of this year. The reason is the sudden onslaught of promos on the channel, Colors, that airs the show. These promos lead to a series of questions in the minds of the now faithful audience – Will Anandi die in the show? What will happen to the story if the protagonist dies?
According to our source, “Jagya (Avinash Mukherjee) will leave the house when he gets very low marks in his exams. Anandi (Avika Gor) will go looking for him, despite restrictions from the family. This will lead to a tragic incident, which will be dangerous for Anandi, maybe even fatal. Anandi may be shown dying, and this may lead to a new track, or a new cast. Or maybe she will be in a coma, and re-appear on the show later.”
The agenda of the channel may be to regain its dipping TRPs. This track may just work wonders for the show. However, according to our source, it may not be a deliberate move, but a forced one, given that both the young protagonists have their final exams soon, and may not be able to shoot for a while. “The story will concentrate more on the family members during this time,” adds our source.
Producer Sanjoy Waddhva remained unavailable for comments. We can only wait and watch. Masa may have enough histrionic abilities to entertain the audience, but Anandi in a new avatar may face repercussions.
