Barely a month after replacing the original lead couple — Ashish Chowdhry and Rachana Parulkar — with Asha Negi and Kunal Verma, the channel has decided to pull the plug on Ek Mutthi Aasmaan.


The show will end on September 12. A new storyline and new lead couple failed to pump up the ratings of the daily series. Actress Shilpa Shirodkar, who made her acting debut on the small screen with the family drama, says, “Yes, it will be an abrupt ending. I’m sad and disappointed. We did the best we could to improve the ratings. The show had to end some day, but it has happened too soon. We could’ve gone on for one more year. While I got positive feedback from the viewers, the show couldn’t rake in great numbers. I’m secretly hoping for a miracle to happen, but the word is final.”


Does she feel the recent change in the cast didn’t go down well with the viewers? “It would be wrong to hold one person responsible. The new actors didn’t get enough time to establish themselves,” she reasons. Ask her if she understands the number game better now and she replies, “I still don’t and never wish to understand the game. I just want to do good work.”


Zee TV’s upcoming show Bandhan will replace the show. The show is described as “a heartwarming story of a very tender relationship between two innocent souls – one based on the most basic emotion of love and affection for one’s sibling, standing by each other through thick and thin and completing each other”, said a statement.
