The way Tom Riddle(Voldemort) had cursed the post of defence against dark arts teacher (DADA), I think the same way 8:30p.m. time slot of star plus has been cursed.
After being refused the post of DADA professor by current headmaster Albus Dumbledore, Riddle cursed the post so that no teacher could remain in the post for more than one year.
For example during years of Harry Potter -Quirrel in first, Lockhart in second, Lupin in third, Alastor Moody (Barty Crouch Jr) in fourth, Umbridge in fifth, Severus Snape in sixth and Carrow in seventh.
Well this curse was removed only after the death of Voldemort.
Mahabharat was one of the best shows of star plus airing at 8:30 p.m.
After that started Nisha aur uske cousins. This show was very popular among the the youth ,specially the leads -Aneri aka Nisha, Mishkat aka Kabir and Taher aka Viraj. Inspite good ratings , the channel decided to end it abruptly . Fans from everywhere India and outside protested against it through social media and by signing petitions.
But the channel didn’t listen at all, even the requests of change of time slot. Angered by this decision fans announced “no nauc no star plus”.Thus the show ended in eight months.
The show replacing NAUC was Badtameez dil, but the things didn’t go well even this time , it was shifted to hotstar just after four months of start.
It was replaced by Ekta Kapoor’s Tere Mere Darmiyaan. The ratings were so poor that the main leads were replaced. But the magic of Asha Negi and Aly couldn’t do anything and the show ran for four months.
Last but not the least -Silsila Pyaar Ka. Makers killed the male lead for trps but nothing happened and the show went off air after four months.
Let’s see for how much time the new show is going to run. The show will have to face a lot of competition from much better and long running shows like Udaan, Taarak mehta ka ooltah chashmah and Jamai Raja.
