After saas-bahu soaps you have unleashed the naagins and supernatural forces. What makes these shows popular?
Why are Harry Potter and Game Of Thrones popular? We have been seeing these typical shows for so many years — supernatural mixed with social elements. It gives the social shows another twist. I think it's a mystique of the world we don't know that lures us. It's the unknown that excites us more to watch them. Having said that there's going to be a phase for everything. We will constantly do all kinds of entertainment. Right now, this space is interesting to explore. When it gets to the level of becoming repetitive people will want a break from it. I know that when the audience gets bored I am supposed to accept defeat and move on.
Your show Pyaar Ko Ho Jaane Do, despite having a good cast and a progressive theme didn't work.
