Personal issues, Bollywood ambitions and coordination problems with the channel or production team are common reasons for actors being replaced or quit the show. But as the lead characters left the serial, obviously the TRPs drop. And the main reason for this is that the audience become so attached to the characters that they laugh and cry with the main protagonist.
Needless to say, audience associates themselves with the lead character of the show and become everybody’s favourite. And after the lead actors decided to leave the show, TRP suffers.
Here’s a list of 10 shows whose TRPs suffered when the lead actor or actress quit the show:
1.Sunil Grover from ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’
The controversy surrounding Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover has affected The Kapil Sharma Show’s ratings. As per the Television Rating Points (TRPs) of Week 12 (March 18-24) of 2017, Kapil Sharma’s show couldn’t make it to the top 10 list. Since its inception, The Kapil Sharma Show had always made it to the top five most-watched shows and was the number one non-fiction show. However, with the absence of the key characters, it seems the comedy show is slowly losing its sheen.
2. Dipika Kakkar from ‘Sasural Simar Ka’
Simar has finally decided to leave her sasural. Dipika Kakar, who has been part of ‘Sasural Simar Ka‘ (‘SSK’) since its inception in 2011, is quitting the show for good. After the lead protagonist quit the show, TRP of the show has been going down on a frequent basis.
