It is curtains for Sony's popular serial Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin. The show ends today with a grand finale - but its makers don't discount the possibility of its return.
Deya Singh, co-director of Jassi... says, "Who knows? It may return. I firmly believe soaps should have a seasonal run, as they do in other countries."
Deya is crestfallen but convinced that ending the serial is the right thing to do.
"All good things must come to an end, I guess. We were with Banegi ApniBaat (on Zee) for six years. So the breakaway finally was far tougher. Tony and I have been on Jassi for three years.
"We have seen it grow into quite a formidable force. One thing is for sure. Jassi will be remembered in the history of Indian television as the one soap that spearheaded many spin-offs."
Deya disagrees that the soap had begun to drag its feet towards the final lap of its journey.
"Every soap has its karma. Jassi has taken three years of my life. And I am proud of it. I have blisters on my feet to show for it. For now, we have put Jassi behind us and are focusing on our new soap, Jab LoveHua on Zee."
Jassi will be replaced by Adhikari Brothers' horror show Khaufnaak.
The Singh duo has another soap scheduled for Sab-Sony featuring Rajiv Khandelwal.
"All in all it is going to be full house for us. Of course, we'll miss Jassi. We hope to work with Mona Singh again. But she has to want to come back to TV with something that she believes in.
"Right now she just wants to take a long break. I think she has earned it. So have we. But we are already shooting our next soap."
