Ever since it first started airing in 2020, Anupamaa has consistently maintained its spot as one of the most loved TV shows on the silver screen today. The series, starring Rupali Ganguly, Gaurav Khanna and Sudhanshu Pandey, unveiled a new promo recently, which seems to have fans divided.
The promo seems to hint at a tragic fate befalling Khanna’s character Anuj. Anuj, who is married to Ganguly’s Anupamaa, is seen lying motionless in a hospital bed. Anupamaa is seen trying to comfort her daughter, as the latter asks if he will ever be alright. She is also seen saying that she will ensure that Anuj stands on his feet again, while Anuj sits in a wheelchair.
The promo comes in the midst of reports that Khanna will exit the show soon. Many viewers seemed to think that the promo was confirmation that the makers are indeed moving ahead with the plan of writing off Anuj’s character from the show. Fans reacted quite strongly to the upcoming development in the show, and opinions among them were divided.
Some fans defended the route the show chose to take. One user spoke of how Anupamaa required a ‘push’ and hoped that the writers will make the best use of the plot to show the protagonist’s growth. Praising Khanna’s character, they spoke of how viewers can expect another strong performance from the actor. Some users even got emotional.
Numerous users criticised the new storyline, questioning the reason for such a drastic step. One user asked why Anupamaa’s character development needed Anuj to suffer a tragedy.
Many users alleged that the new development was introduced so that Khanna’s character would be sidelined, giving Ganguly more room to shine. Calling it unnecessary, some viewers even went so far as to say that the writers will ruin the show.
Anupamaa is available to stream on Disney+Hotstar.
