The axe-date is out, as per sources.

Yes, the talk of Saraswatichandra (Sphereorigins) going off air has been on for quite some time. And now we have got exclusive information that this Star Plus serial will finally breathe its last on 18 October.

The last couple of months must have been difficult for the creatives as they worked real hard to up the numbers, but all efforts proved futile.

Saraswatichandra, the ambitious project of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, started off with great expectations. But with him not being able to handle the proceedings, the reins were later handed to Sphereorigins. The show boasts of popular and talented Gautam Rode and Jennifer Winget in lead roles.

The adaptation of Gujarati novel of the same name, the show started off really well but with recent dip in TRPs and changing storylines, channel brought out its whip and now the axe.

And then came the news of Gautam quitting the show and names like Karan Singh Grover, Vivian Dsena were tossed up as his replacement. But when nothing worked, Gautam decided to stick around and shoot for some extended time.

The track currently is focusing on Gautam getting his mother, Saraswati back in his life and deciding on taking revenge from his step mom Guman (Monica Bedi).

Now sources inform that this is the last and the final twist in the show. With Saras and Kumud bringing Saraswati (Maleeka R Ghai) to justice, the show will soon wrap up. And as a culminating treat, a mega garba raas has been planned where the family will be celebrating together.

The channel is yet to decide on which new show will come in as replacement.

We tried reaching Gautam and Jennifer but they remained unavailable to comment.
