Popular Star Plus TV show Naamkarann, which stars Aditi Rathore and Zain Imam in the lead roles, is all set to say goodbye to its viewers. There are reports that the show which was launched in September 2016, is going to conclude on May 18. The star cast of the serial is yet to be informed about the date of its final episode’s telecast. The show was inspired by 1998 film Zakhm, which was based on the filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt’s life.
A source close to the show told a leading daily, “Speculations have been rife that the show will end soon for some time now but now we have a date. While we have managed to sustain the ratings for long, it’s time to end it on a high rather than dragging the narrative. We plan to wrap up the shoot by the end of this month. While there is no clarity on the last telecast, we’re told May 18 could be it.”

Zaim Imam told the leading daily, “I’m not sure about the exact reason but we, too, have been hearing that a lot of shows will be axed. The channel is planning to revamp. Since we’re not leading the slot, they’ve decided to take the show off air. However, I’m happy that the audience liked the show and the feedback, especially for my character, has been encouraging. Besides, I also feel that it’s better to end a show when it’s still doing well. I want to thank my fans for their immense support and love.”
