He continued, "I personally feel that a year is enough for a show and beyond that the premise of the show is lost and then they are dragged. I would not ever want to be a part of an infinite show. This show also, I had signed for a year only but then later Rajan sir (Shahi, the producer of the show) convinced me to stay for two years to which I agreed. He is a great person, who understands his actors a lot. But I would not want to give more than a year to a show on TV otherwise."
