Sanjivani Poster


Rumours have been rife lately that the popular medical drama Sanjivani is under scanner. Several media outlets have reported that Star Plus has decided to pull the plug on the show and that it will beam its final episode in the month of December. However, if the latest report is to be believed, Sanjivani is expected to stay on-air till its agreed date in January 2020.

The show, which hit the airwaves on 12th August, 2019, features Surbhi Chandna, Namit Khanna, Mohnish Bahl and Gurdeep Kohli on its cast. Sanjivani is a reboot version of the 2002 series of the same name, which revolves around the lives of a couple of resident doctors at Sanjivani Hospital. The new season was launched with much fanfare. However, the show failed to weave any magic and rumours about it being axed have been doing the rounds for a couple of weeks now.

Rubbishing all such rumours, producer Siddharth Malhotra says that his show is not bidding adieu in December. Talking to a popular entertainment portal, Malhotra informs, “We have not even been given a first notice formally. No official intimation but our contract signed is for six months since day one.”

If the channel decides to end the show, then it could telecast its final episode on Friday 10th January 2020. It will be interesting to see if Star Plus pulls it down before January. If the show manages to improve its ratings on the TRP charts, you never know if the channel decides to extend its run.
