Mumbai: The social drama series Vidya, starring Meera Deosthale, has come to a premature end due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Producer Mahesh Pandey took to Instagram to pen an emotional note, bidding adieu to the show.
“Good Bye VIDYA. On 1st June 2020, I got a call that our Show VIDYA is being terminate with immediate effect… I was shocked and felt really bad. I had a lot of questions. Why such a decision so suddenly? Since Vidya started, we have been a slot leader at 7 P.M. Vidya’s story is still incomplete. She has not become a teacher yet. I was a perplexed and rattled. I sat down and then realized, Vidya was affected by Corona. It’s a Covid 19 death. There is no other reason for her premature demise,” he wrote.
Vidya, which also starred Namish Taneja, premiered on Colors TV in September 2019. Mahesh said that the project was special for him as it was his first solo production. “Anyway, the journey of 163 episodes was beautiful. Vidya might have been an uneducated teacher but she surely taught me a few things,” he wrote.
Mahesh thanked the channel, the entire team, fans and his family.
