Star Bharat's Akbar Ka Bal....Birbal which aired its first episode on August 31 this year, is going off air in two months time. The show stars some prominent faces like Ali Asgar, Vishal Kotian, Aditi Sajwan and Charu Asopa. However, the audience failed to connect which ultimately resulted in this decision of abruptly ending the show.
The news not only came as a shock to us but the actors as well. We got in touch with Charu who is essaying the role of 'Tarabai' in the show to hear more on this.
Talking to us exclusively Charu Asopa said, "We got to hear this sad news 4 days back and it was really very shocking for us as abhi toh show shuru hi hua tha. I have completed my shoot already but the rest of the team is shooting till October 29 as some patch work is pending. The show was unable to get the expected TRPs. So, a lot of experiments were being made as we started with comedy then we also went little serious to check if that is working. But once a show leaves the grip, it becomes extremely difficult to get the audience back and I feel that was the case here. Also, I feel a large number of TV audiences have shifted to news channels due to the ongoing controversies."

Post her marriage with Rajeev Sen, it was Charu's first show and she was quite excited about her comeback. Though the excitement couldn't sustain for long, the actress has no qualms about it as she said, "I am not upset with this as life doesn't stop. Ab ye show gaya hai to koi aur naya aa jaayega. I am very positive about it".
