Popular daily Santoshi Maa that aired on &TV is all set to go off air. The show starring Gracy Singh, Ratan Raajputh, Ayaz Ahmed and Debina Bonnerjee will air its last episode on October 20.
It’s rightly said that all good things come to an end. Popular daily Santoshi Maa that aired on &TV is all set to go off air. While Ratan Raajputh and Ayaz Ahmed played the leads, Lagaan and Munnai Bhai MBBS actor Gracy Singh made a comeback on the small screen, playing the titular role. Shared a source, “Santoshi Maa had a healthy run and would have completed two years in November this year. The channel and makers felt that the show had reached a point of stagnation and rather than disappointing fans with a stretched storyline, it’s better to wrap it up.”
Produced by Rashmi Sharma Productions, the daily was a unique mix of mythology and saas-bahu drama. The audience not just got to see a love story and usual dramatic track but also the lives of Goddesses in the parlok. The show was lapped up by viewers for its interesting content and characters. Debina Bonnerjee, who played the negative lead, was also much appreciated for her glamorous avatar as the vamp.
When we called up Ratan she seemed surprised with the news but added, “I had no clue about it but I must tell you that I had a great experience with the show. These two years will always be a memorable one for me. The entire team was a wonderful one and I will definitely miss all of them.” Ratan is fondly still remembered as Laali from Agle Janam Mohe Bitiya Ji Kijo. The actor had also participated in a Swayamvar where she got engaged to one of the contestants. But with things not working out post the show, the couple had parted ways.
The reel Santoshi Maa, Gracy made her acting debut with TV show Amaanat. After bagging the lead in Aamir Khan’s Lagaan, she moved to Bollywood and also starred with Sanjay Dutt in Munnabhai. With serene and simple looks, Gracy couldn’t manage to strengthen her foothold in B-Town and thus slowly turned towards the stage with her classical dance talent. With the opportunity to play the titular role of a character well suited for her, the actor finally got back in front of the camera.
Santoshi Maa aired at 9 pm, Monday-Friday. As of now, the channel hasn’t confirmed its replacement.
