Coronavirus spread has definitely impacted our lives miserably. Many television shows have been going off-air leaving actors and makers disheartened along with the fans. The recent one to join the list is Gul Khan's Nazar 2.
We spoke to the leading lady Shruti Sharma, essaying the role of Palak Verma in Season 2 and she said, "I got to know this sad news from my production team, day before yesterday, and it was heartbreaking. Our industry is facing a lot of financial loss at this time. It's a hard time for everyone- from the producers to channel. But the reason for Nazar 2 to end is because it airs at 11 pm slot- ours was the first new show which aired at that slot or else it was always given for repeat telecast of on-going shows. But now when shoots have stopped and fresh episodes of any show is not being aired, retaining that slot has become difficult. Hence, this decision was taken."
It had just been a month that Shruti started shooting for the show. But in this short span of time, she bonded really well with the team, which is the reason the actress got teary-eyed on knowing the show is going off-air.
"The day I got the news, I cried a lot. In fact, even now while talking to you, I am feeling very emotional. That day the Creative Head of the team spoke to me for a long time, counselling me. We also have a WhatsApp group for Nazar 2, of which all the actors are a part. We thanked each other and praised everyone's work. Taaki sabki himmat bani rahe. All were upset but we can't even call it unfair because it's nobodys fault. The situation is so bad outside. I just pray for people to be safe and survive through this phase as there will be a new beginning to everything," said Shruti.
Shruti further revealed why this decision pinched her a lot. She said, "Nazar is a big show and I was getting the opportunity to explore the super-natural genre with it. So, when I heard the news, first thing which hit me was I won't be able to perform all of this now."
As of now, Beyhadh 2, Patiala Babes, Isharo Isharo Mein, Dil Jaise Dhadke Dhadakne Do are a few shows which have gone off-air, besides Nazar 2.
