Here’s Why Ishqbaaaz Strictly Must Follow The Policy Of – ‘The Show Must Go On’ Despite The Outrage!

Ishqbaaaz

This piece is going to receive a lot of flak. Probably the regular blames will also come about us receiving favours from the makers of Ishqbaaaz.

But we thought it’s high time we go against the tide and speak some harsh truth that may sound very bitter to all the fans out there.

A show is made by the efforts of numerous people whose mind work behind the camera. The 6 characters of Ishqbaaaz had numerous other people working behind the scenes thinking how Annika will talk, how Shivaay will walk, how Om will recite or how Rudra will crack jokes. The actors made them alive on screen but there are other minds who gave them birth on paper and through ideas.

It’s not only the actors who make a show, it’s the technicians, writers, director and when it comes to Ishqbaaaz, the cinematography, set designing and costume department deserve special mention.

It’s a team that makes a show and more than one brain and numerous amount of hard work that takes a show to the peak of popularity.

Denying all that hardwork, the contribution of every other single unit and insulting the very people who made Annika – Is not the right thing to do.

Ishqbaaaz is a story and Annika is a very important part of that story but she isn’t the whole story of Ishqbaaaz. When her part of the story ends, she will leave it and that doesn’t mean that the story will have to end.

When we see hundreds of fans rallying behind to end a show, doing everything in their might by spending hard earned money of their parents to actually take away jobs of 300 people for the sake of one actor, who probably will get another show in a few weeks again – We fail to understand what kind of youth we are dealing with?

Surbhi Chandna In Ishqbaaaz

We do value and understand fans’ emotions but this isn’t the way it should come across. If the storyline seemed inappropriate then constructive feedback can always be given to the channel in prior instead of bashing like this in the end. It’s overwhelming to see the amount of love Surbhi is getting right now but fans should understand there goes much more behind what they see on screen. And they might serve their purpose and make the show end but in the process the unseen damage that they unintentionally may end up doing, might never be witnessed by them.

There are screenshots roaming around internet where fans are spreading when Gul Khan or Harneet Singh is entering the office of Star Plus, when they are having a meeting and when they can be pressurized them about the same.

What if they get harmed in the process? What if things go out of hands? Will the fans take responsibility for their actions?

By putting up posters of #NoSurbhiNoIshqbaaz across the roads and walls of the city, they think they are doing some great work of admiration. Girls, do yourself some favour, use that money and put up posters of ‘Save water’ campaign in your own society, plant some trees in your area with that money or the least, start a campaign about changing the TRP system of India through your activism, so that no good youth show face such fate again in future!

Fact is – Shivika has no story left. Another fact is, the producer Gul Khan and actor Surbhi Chandna are friends. Another fact is, probably they will again work together in future and also no matter what you fans do, few weeks or months down the lane you may see both of them party hard together in future for either of their another show’s success. They mutually admire each other and they are aware of professional hurdles that often friendships go through. Surbhi Chandna is given her first break by Gul Khan and so did her second. We don’t understand in such scenario, why people are hell bent on maligning the image of the producer, her rapport with the actress and making the actor a scapegoat unnecessarily.

Television in a way is a very small world. An actor works with the same producer or same writers in one way or the other every other day.

Some day Surbhi Chandna may work in the same production house or may be a different production house but with the same writers – Her fans should be considerate of her friendly rapport with them and not malign people who have worked with her because ultimately these people may or will again work with her in future.

Real world isn’t at all like the twitter world. What you see, imagine or rather build in your head might not be true at all. There are 300 people working in and earning from Ishqbaaaz, rallying up denying their contribution, ignoring their existence and insulting them will earn no good to anyone.

There are many people who worked to make Annika a favourite character. Annika in return enriched and made Ishqbaaaz a beautiful and memorable experience. But she isn’t the whole of Ishqbaaaz. We love her but our love shouldn’t become toxic to others or to the one whom we love.

There’s a very simple principle in this show business – No actor is bigger than the character and no character is bigger than the show. So no matter what happens, ‘The SHOW MUST GO ON!’.

And anyone who doesn’t adhere to this basic principle, doesn’t respect it and humiliates it, isn’t fit for show business.

Television actors and technicians sacrifice a lot to make a show run. Their sacrifices should never go into waste.

Some fans are demanding to end Ishqbaaaz because Surbhi Chandna is not going to be a part of the show. We want to question some sane people here.

What are you going to earn by shutting the show down except satisfying your own ego and taking away jobs of hundreds of other people?

Is it going to do any good to Surbhi? No. May be she will be in another show pretty soon or at least offers pouring her way to consider.

Is it going to harm Gul Khan? No. She already has two successful shows running on the same channel with 2.0+ TRPs. She will start another show may be in some time.

Surbhi’s fans may also sit to watch the other show Surbhi will go on to do.

You won’t be harmed expect wasting your time. Surbhi won’t be harmed. Producer won’t be harmed. Just the people who worked tirelessly day and night to make the show reach this height will be denied their deserving acknowledgement. They are made to feel as if they never existed and didn’t do anything at all for the show!

It’s disheartening to see sense going out of the door for so many people who are busy spreading rumors like Gul Khan is conspiring to get rid of her actor.

It’s kind of funny because the same rumors were made to float around during Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon (IPKKND) too.

Having said that, it’s also quite funny to see how fans are giving example of IPKKND and saying that they should continue the efforts to end the show because that’s what happened to IPKKND at the very last moment.

Read this carefully: The moment I saw Surbhi's good bye msg, I was really sad BUT GUESS WHAT, it was a STUNT BY GUL KHAN! Gul was called to Starplus office & WARNED abt everything. So, in order to break our confidence, to stop us from protesting, SHE MADE SURBHI POST THAT VIDEO. IT WAS TO DISTRACT & BREAK US DOWN. Surbhi in her video didnt stop us in whatever we are doing. That means we need to keep going! Gul has done that with IPKKND too. But if we are determined we can make Statplus change decisions, we can make Gul🐍Khan change decisions. SO I REPEAT DO NOT GIVE UP! DO NOT GIVE UP! WE ARE DOING THIS FOR SURBHI, NAKUUL & SHIVIKA! LET HISTORY REPEAT ITSELF! . #NoIshqbaaazWithoutSurbhi #NoNarbhiNoIshqbaaaz #Ishqbaaaz #SurbhiChandna #Shivika #nakuulmehta #NoSurbhiNoIshqbaaaz

What no one is bothered about is that what price Barun Sobti had to pay for his well wishing fans! The show was shut down at the last moment but he had to take the blame for it. A disclaimer was run on the channel for the last 5 days of the show blaming him for its end. Gul Khan went on to produce another hit show on Zee TV right after that, their hate neither could bring her down nor is going to affect her. But their love for Barun definitely proved to be toxic for him.

Barun wasn’t seen on television after that until he was brought back by the same producer again in 2017. Such disclaimers aren’t too healthy for an artist in the long run and shutting down IPKKND didn’t help anyone except satisfying the fans’ ego.

Some people may ask us on twitter why we aren’t using the hashtags of Ishqbaaaz fans much – Well, the answer is we will not repeat the mistakes we committed during IPKKND.

We will not publish rumors against the makers of any show. We will not say that a show earning butter and bread of hundreds should end and we will not write articles maligning the image of anyone no matter what other ‘invisible until now’ publications decide to do for the sake of hits.

We have written on Ishqbaaaz a lot – Praising it, loving it, criticizing it more than anyone. We have also said earlier when the fans had jumped on us for writing a criticizing article on the show that we will NOT stop writing on it for anyone except the authorities.

And today we stick to every word of it – We stick to Ishqbaaaz, its present and its future, however good or bad it is, because we believe ‘the show must go on’!

And by the end of it, we will also say that all our good wishes are with Surbhi Chandna. She is a great artist and if she can play Annika so perfectly, she can play way more beautiful characters and surprise us in future. We are excited for her future endeavours and will always be with her.

Her fans will obviously don’t understand maturity and will still end up bashing, badmouthing and cursing us. Go on. We are habituated getting that from Ishqbaaaz fans. That’s all they did in the last 1 year and are still continuing with it.

At the moment, fans’ love and concern for Surbhi is overshadowing the rational thinking and overlooking the cons that come with it. This world of showbizz will still go on and will keep doing so with all the love that viewers pour in. But this love minus the bashing, the extremities is all that’s needed for your favourites to progress too! And one must remember that.

  1. Nice article Saheli but have a different pov on this…agreed a show must go on but there have been examples galore in itv wherein characters have been brought back from dead owing to public demand…simply because these characters had become too important to be done away with…any creation needs to take into account the feedback, emotions and sentiments of it’s target audience…after all the shows are being created for their consumption…sorry to say, this stopped happening in IB long time back.. There aren’t any job guarantee/stability in the private sector…least of all in the entertainment industry and those working in front or behind the cameras, work through their careers with these dynamics only..
    Coming to the IB frenzy…this isn’t the first time a female actor refused playing a mom…but things were handled very badly here…instead of the actor telling her fans the reason for quitting from the project, it was the producer telling everyone about it and hence faced the flak…in addition, the story didn’t make sense…SC refused to play mom and hence every other actor except for one was handed over the pink slip!! Wierd! Assuming they had a great motherhood track at hand, they could have simply replaced the FL and moved ahead with the story…and last but not the least, it’s not an intelligent move calling thousands of angry fans ‘a small bunch of people’ and deeming them powerless.. It’s adding insult to the injury and may boomerang badly…
    Agree with you when you say everybody will move on to other projects…but people who ensured that their favorite onscreen couple won every possible jodi award with mammoth and unconditional support to the show, at least deserved a hearing..

  2. Why Shivika, Ishqbaaz has no story left and such has been the case for the last few months!!! Which is the reason for Reboot for rinse and repeat of the same track of forced marriage and all!!!

    It has already run for more than 2 years and it is time it ends!!!

    I don’t understand why the fans are going to such extent?? There is a simpler way to do this!!! Let the show go on and then stop watching it so that the TRPs go down and then the show will get pulled off air!!!

    Of course that leaves them with bad memories of a bad ending but which fandom got a good ending?? Most had rushed endings due to low TRPs!!!!

    You want to get the show off air, stop watching and ensure it gets low TRPs!!!! Simple!!!

    Just like we Bepannah fans are trying to raise the TRP!!!

  3. Couldn’t agree more !!! 👏👏👏 …I really love Annika Shivaay n ShivIka …n really don’t want her to go ….will really miss her …bt fact is ShivIka has no story left ……. n after leap …she doesn’t wants to play mother at this point of her career ( can totally understand that) or can’t really see surbhi playing nakuul’s mother or Nakuul playing her father or them playing father mother of grown up child n being sidelined ( m sure no one would want this) so only option left is both or one of them leaves n story starts afresh …bt why end the show .!!??? ..Gul khan will come back with another show as u said .. surbhi will get so many offers (what an amazing actor she is ) ..sooner or later she will be back ..may be with same production house ..who knows ..bt what about those hundreds of people who are working behind …why no one is thinking about them !!!why they have to loose their jobs !! N this spamming , abusing , bashing , cursing may get u what u want now ..bt it really affects actors badly in long run .. and I would have said same if nakuul was at her place ….😐
