The channel is planning to revamp. Since we’re not leading the slot, they’ve decided to take the show off air. However, I’m happy that the audience liked the show and the feedback, especially for my character, has been encouraging. Besides, I also feel that it’s better to end a show when it’s still doing well. I want to thank my fans for their immense support and love.”
