Due to the lockdown and COVID 19 pandemic, the producers of several TV serials couldn't conduct the shoot as leading actors refuse to resume shooting for their portions as they have to be in quarantine if they go out of their home districts for work.
Irked by this practical difficulty, Sun TV has canceled four TV serials including Azhagu, Kalyana Parisu, Tamizh Selvi, and Chocolate. Vijay and Zee TV have now decided to telecast TV serials only if the respective producers give them twenty-five episodes in advance. With 25 episodes in hand, both Zee and Vijay think that they can manage to resume the shoot and have a few more episodes to telecast.
Many TV serial producers are now worried because of this pandemic and uncertainty in their business. TV channels are somehow managing by airing old hit TV serials and movies.
