As TV serial shoots have been stopped due to the twenty-one days lockdown, channels are running out of content. Market leader Sun TV is now airing its blockbuster serials like Metti Oli and Thangam again.
Vijay TV aired a few episodes of Big Boss and highlights of the hit Super Singer show featuring Anirudh and other talented singers. Doordarshan has started airing Ramayan, Mahabharat, and Shaktimaan to please its audiences.
Some of the TV networks have also started playing blockbuster movies instead of TV serials to attract their viewers. Many serial actors and technicians are now jobless and the daily wagers associated with the profession are said to be financially struggling.
