Star Plus’ Namah was a dream project for the makers. They were bringing in the mythology with a new narrative of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu’s friendship and all of it was supposed to be a spectacle of a kind. The magnum opus had a great start but soon it witnessed a tremendous fall in the TRPs.
The head honchos of the show decided to make a few fundamental changes but all in vain. Even after undergoing several replacements and enabling storyline changes, the show did not see any improvement in the numbers. In an interview to Bombay Times, the producer Ved Raj confirmed,“Yes, the show will end on December 20. Namah was actually slated to be a one-hour weekend show and it was written in that format. Then 12 days before the telecast, a decision was taken to make it a weekday show.
I feel the early evening time slot did not work for the show. Though we tried to revamp, it did not help in garnering more eyeballs for the show. But, I am happy that we tried our best and made every effort to make it work. It was a big budget show, so we had to think well before bringing in newer plots. It was not a regular fiction show.”
