Just this morning we brought to you how CID is all set to go off air On October 27 after 21 years of entertaining us. Even though the news is heartbreaking for all the fans, it is going to be back with a renewed energy pretty soon. Lead actor Shivaji Satam, who has been playing ACP Pradyuman all these years, has now spoken up about its closure.
Speaking to BollywoodLife.com, Shivaji said, “It’s a channel’s prerogative, our opinions don't matter. It is up to the channel whether to carry it on or not! It is obviously sad, who wouldn’t. And if you know somebody for 21 years, it’s like losing a friend after a long time."
Sony Entertainment Television had given out an official statement about the closing of the show. It read as, “Having completed 20 years, CID, is the longest running cult show on Sony Entertainment Television. It has been a great journey so far, along with Fireworks Productions, and CID will now take an intermittent break starting 28th October, 2018. The last episode of the show will be aired on 27th October, 2018. The show will gear up for a renewed season with a lot more contextual cases keeping alive the thrill that the audience has experienced so far.”
Dayanand Shetty, who plays the popular character of Inspector Daya speaking to Times Of India had said, “Yes, it's true. We were recently informed about this development and we stopped shooting for the show some 4/5 days back. This Saturday (October 27, 2018) telecast will be the last episode of CID. We were in our 21st year and had we shot for a few more episodes, we would have entered our 22nd year. It is quite an unfortunate thing to happen as we were shooting like always and suddenly we were informed by our producer that the shooting has been called off indefinitely because there were issues with the channel. I am going to miss the character, but we feel sad for the audience as they enjoyed the show and it was doing well. The entire cast and crew is very dedicated towards their work and we are like a big happy family. We are going to miss each other as this was our second home.”
