Two days back it has been announced that the most iconic and oldest show CID is going off air on 27 October. CID has been entertaining its audience for 21 years and becomes the longest-running show on Sony Television. This news left CID’s viewers saddened but soon it will be back soon with a new plot and stories. The leading actor of CID, Shivaji Satam aka ACP Pradyuman for us all these years finally talked about the show’s closure.
Talking with BollywoodLife.com, Shivaji said, “It’s a channel’s prerogative, our opinions don’t matter. It is up to the channel whether to carry it on or not It is obviously sad, who wouldn’t. And if you know somebody for 21 years, it’s like losing a friend after a long time.”
Even Sony Entertainment Television gave an official statement of CID’s end which reads, “Having completed 20 years, CID, is the longest running cult show on Sony Entertainment Television. It has been a great journey so far, along with Fireworks Productions, and CID will now take an intermittent break starting 28th October 2018. The last episode of the show will be aired on 27th October 2018. The show will gear up for a renewed season with a lot more contextual cases keeping alive the thrill that the audience has experienced so far.”
CID’s one of the most favorite character Daya aka Dayanand Shetty also spoken to Times Of India about the same and said, “Yes, it’s true. We were recently informed about this development and we stopped shooting for the show some 4 to 5 days back. This Saturday, October 27, 2018 telecast will be the last episode of CID. We were in our 21st year and had we shot for a few more episodes, we would have entered our 22nd year. It is quite an unfortunate thing to happen as we were shooting like always and suddenly we were informed by our producer that the shooting has been called off indefinitely because there were issues with the channel. I am going to miss the character, but we feel sad for the audience as they enjoyed the show and it was doing well. The entire cast and crew is very dedicated towards their work and we are like a big happy family. We are going to miss each other as this was our second home.”
We all will miss CID and the whole gang.
