Rashmi Sharma says TRPs of Saathiya are not falling due to Giaa's replacementSunrise Productions’ Sasural Simar Ka (Colors) is climbing slowly and steadily on the TRP charts, but there other project on Star Plus, Saath Nibhana Saathiya has been falling back in the race of numbers.
Firstly, talking about Sasural, producer Rashmi Sharma shared with us, “We have been working on the same track for quite some time now but the plot is gripping and viewers love it. I don’t really think about the TRPs while working on the storyline. We work from our heart to entertain people. Especially our current team is very strong and they put in a lot of effort to make every show work. In case of Sasural, the cast is good and it is working in favour of the serial.”
Well said, Rashi…but what about the low numbers of Saath Nibhana Saathiya. Some months back it used to rule the roost on the TRP chart. “If you have been following the story you will notice that we have changed the format and have added a lone angle to it. Till date viewers haven’t seen much love between Gopi and Ahem and that is something that they will experience from now on. We understand that the fans are not taking the current track that well but we had to get in a change as things would get too monotonous otherwise. But if this particular track does not work, we will get back to the original storyline.”
The production house and the channel had made a very important decision of replacing its lead Giaa Maanek with Devoleena Bhattacharjee as Gopi sometime last month. Hence, we asked if that could be one of the reasons of the shows downfall to which the producer said, “I wouldn’t accept this as it was the same show with the same Giaa but it did not work for the first six months. However it started picking up from there as the audience started liking the story. The story is more important for me and not any particular character.”
But there is no denying the fact that the actors usually have a fan following which helps one get the TRPs? “Let’s not discuss old things. As far as the story is concerned we are working on it and things will get better in the future.”
