Default Lockdown, Low TRP - Kannada TV Shows went off-air (Here the List)

Kannada television is witnessing a lot of shows that went off-air for over a year. While a few shows concluded their journey amid the lockdown, a few went off-air as it did not score well in the TRP charts. Here is a list of a few Kannada shows that went off-air unnoticed.


The show that marked the comeback of Shoba Shetty to Kannada television after three years concluded its journey recently. Rukku went off-air as it did not manage to fair well in terms of viewership. It just aired 100 episodes.


Kannada horror-based show Aakruthi went off air unnoticed. Although it was well-received by the audience in the beginning, Aakruthi witnessed a dip in the TRP charts. It was one of the main reasons for the show going off-air.

​Lagna Patrike

Lagna Patrike aired only for two months. The show concluded its journey due to poor responses from the viewers. Director Arvind Kaushik in an interview BT told, "The viewers’ and my thoughts didn’t match. They are used to seeing a certain set pattern on TV and I tried to break it. They like drama, over-the-top emotions, and loud talk. I tried my best to stay away from those, but in the end, we had to give in to popular taste and go down that route too. But it looks like even that couldn’t salvage the situation."


Ranganayaki turned out to be everyone's favorite post its premiere. The show also enjoyed a huge fan base. However, the show went off air amid the first nationwide lockdown in 2020 due to the rage in the novel Coronavirus. Speaking about the same with us exclusively, actor Mithun Tejaswi who played a prominent role in the show said, "Ranganayaki was a very good show. Initially, it was scoring well on the TRP charts. But unfortunately, things did not fall in place. There was a drastic dip in terms of TRP. So, concluding the show was bound to happen."

Aarthigobba Keerthigobba

Aarthigobba Keerthigobba aired only for a couple of months. The show did not show many ratings on the TRP charts either. The family drama was said to be a remake of a popular daily soap 'Naam Iruvar Namakku Iruvar'.

Varalakshmi stores

Yet another show that went off air during the first nationwide lockdown. Although it was a remake of a Tamil show Pandyan stores, the Kannada version was aired with some suitable changes in the storyline keeping the viewers in mind.
