Sources say that the production crew of Madhubala-Ek Ishq Ek Junoon, has not being paid its dues. A crewmember from the show says, “The show is about to go off air but it recently got a few weeks extension as the new show that will replace it is not yet ready.”
Since the past few weeks, we have not got our money. We got our cheques only to realise that they have bounced. We are thinking of having a word with the senior members of the production team and it would be great if we could sort things out at the earliest.” added the source.
The crew member says that currently, the team is keen to complete shooting for the show and move on to the next assignment. “But of course, we are quite disappointed with the state of affairs. We having been working on the show from the beginning and we were expecting to end it on a happy note. We are hoping that the production house will soon pay our dues.”
Madhubala-Ek Ishq Ek Junoon has been under the scanner for a while now. With the generation leap falling flat the broadcasters have been toying the idea of replacing the show for a while now.
It seems that the show makers, tried their best to regain the popularity and TRP’s of their show but could not do so and hence the channel has decided to axe the show.
Madhubala-Ek Ishq Ek Junoon is likely to go off air in mid July 2014 and will be replaced by Shastri Sisters.
