When CID went off-air, many hearts were broken. The cast and crew was shocked with the way a 21-year-long show came to an end. It was surely abrupt and the team felt insulted and offended. We had spoken to Dayanand Shetty, back in Oct 2018, when CID went off-air and he was mighty upset with the decision.
Daya had lashed out on the channel and said there was no attachment from their side towards the show. It's been 1 year and 5 months, from the time CID went off air and is now COMING BACK! BUT only as rerun of old episodes during the lockdown phase. Many channels are reviving their classics and SONY has done too.
So, we thought of contacting Dayanand Shetty again and ask him what are the emotions now about whatever happened back in 2018 and also, about the show coming back on TV in the format of reruns.
"I wasn't aware that the show is being re telecast everyday in the morning. People started calling and messaging me and saying that it is so nice to see you all back on Sony TV and that's how I came to know that the channel has decided to air it again, during the lockdown phase. I am very happy with the decision and it's a very nice feeling."
However, Daya has not forgotten the pinch of how it all ended for Team CID and still has questions. The actor said, "When it went off-air in 2018, we didn't know the reason for it. And even today, it is not clear. The show was doing good but they targeted it in a very organised manner. Bhaut hi surgically clean kiya tha show ko channel se. It could have done better but from 2016 channel was hellbent on somehow killing it and finally in 2018, un logo ne show ka lockdown kar diya."
Well, if not new, we are sure the ardent fans of the show will be still glued to the old episodes just the same way.
