Bahu Begum stars Arjit Taneja, Samiksha Jaiswal and Diana Khan in lead roles. The story follows the lives of Azaan Akhtar Mirza, Shayra Sayyed and Noor Qureshi who are bound by a marriage due to misunderstandings and fate. The show was launched with much fanfare. However, it failed to perform as per expectations of the makers and remained low on TRP charts. And now, the channel is finally taking it down.

When actor Arjit Taneja, who plays the male lead, was asked about the show going off-air, he told an entertainment portal, “I don’t know. I am doing my job as an actor and giving my best. Rest you should ask the producer and creatives who work on the story.”

Actress Amrapali Gupta, who is seen the character of Begum Suraiya Mirza, told the publication, “You really can’t blame the creative for the huge story changes, for writers too are forced to toe the public opinion. Also, our low numbers can be attributed to the time slot and also to changing platform preferences. Nowadays, most prefer to watch content online rather than on TV. I too prefer watching my daily Colors shows on Voot.”

An official announcement confirming the show’s end is awaited.
