‘Balika Vadhu’ to go off air – Here’s why

Mumbai: One of Indian TV’s longest running shows – Balika Vadhu – will go off air on July 31, reports suggest. With the blissful marital union of Nandini (Mahhi Vij) and Krish (Ruslaan Mumtaz), in the show’s latest track, the story seems to have reached its zenith.

‘Balika Vadhu’ was hugely popular among the masses owing to its content and theme that focused on the ill-effects of child marriage. And now after 8 years, the show will end. Low TRPs are believed to be partly responsible for the show's culmination, reports indicate.

Mahhi, who plays the show’s original protagonist Anandi’s daughter after the show took a leap, feels that ‘Balika Vadhu’ was not promoted well after the time slot changed. Though she is yet to be informed officially about the end of the show, Mahhi believes that many followers of the show weren’t aware of the change in the show’s telecast, a report in Times of India suggests.

The show has run its course successfully for eight years and is now ready for the curtains.
