Azhagu is a widely popular Tamil television serial that has been airing on Sun TV for the past three years. This family drama features Revathi, Thalaivasal Vijay, Thendral fame Sruthi Raj, and VJ Sangeetha in the lead roles. This serial is produced by Vision Time India Private Limited. Azhagu serial owns a very good fan base among the household audience. However, due to the pandemic situation, just like any other serial, the shooting of Azhagu serial was also stalled.

When everyone were expecting the serial to resume production this week (Government and FEFSI has granted permission for television serial shootings to resume), the shocking news has now come that the serial has been dropped. This unexpected news has put the fans in shock and no one exactly knows the reason behind this decision. Actress Sruthi Raj who plays the role of Sudha in the serial, took to her Instagram page to share the news with her fans and followers.

She posted a video in which she revealed the shocking update. She said, "Many of you had pinged me on DM asking the status of Azhagu serial and when they can expect the next episode. So, I put out this video to share an important message to you all. Last month, the team called me for shooting, but due to the Corona scare, I informed the team and the production that I will not be able to attend. I have sinus problems and sinus is prone to cold and other infections and so, I didn’t want to risk.

Now, we were all expecting for the shooting to resume on July 8 and we were also discussing about it in our WhatsApp group. All of a sudden, I was shocked to hear that the serial is dropped. No one expected it and no one knew the reason why the serial was dropped. My heartiest thanks to all the fans and audience who supported Sudha character. All of you took so much time in creating special videos, collages, and fan pages and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the love and support. I wish you support me the same way in my other serials and future endeavours as well.

Through Azhagu serial, I got the opportunity to work with legendary actors like Revathi ma’am and Thalaivasal Vijay sir and it was a memorable experience. I’ll definitely miss the entire team who have been very dear to me. Specially, I’ll badly miss Sahana and Gayathri as we three have been the fun gang in the whole team. We’ve shared a lot of beautiful memories together and I’ll miss them. Thanks to each and everyone in the team who created a positive vibe during the shoot.” Check out Sruthi Raj’s video below:
