TV serials do get hugely popular and that is the reason why they can go on for years. The popularity of the serials can motivate the makers, but then again they need to come with new twists in the serial so as to keep the viewers and their interest alive in the show. Therefore they bring in new elements constantly.But sometimes, the introduction of a new twist can prove more detrimental than good. These might make the serial lose its flavour and therefore becoming less interesting.Many serials have had this problem. They had completed the dream run of 500 episodes but either the storyline could not have been moved further or was ended because of the falling TRPs. Here is a list of 23 serials that had completed 500 episodes but could not reach the 700 episode mark:23 PhotosGallery- RANKED: 23 Hindi TV Serials That Crossed 500 Episodes, But Did Not Complete 700 Episode Mark!Advertisements<div class="rev-container" id="rev-gallery-16911"></div>Kasam- 500 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20181/23Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani- 507 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20182/23Kalash- 518 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20183/23Jhansi Ki Rani- 520 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20184/23Bandini- 520 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20185/23Sindoor Tere Naam Ka- 526 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20186/23Miley Jab Hum Tum- 527 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20187/23Bharat Ka Veer Putra – Maharana Pratap- 539 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20188/23Baa Bahoo Aur Baby- 559 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 20189/23Jodhaa Akbar- 566 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201810/23Sasural Genda Phool- 573 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201811/23Maayka- 585 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201812/23Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan- 594 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201813/23Gangaa- 595 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201814/23Karam Apna Apna- 603 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201815/23Sadda Haq- 614 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201816/23Sankatmochan Mahabali Hanumaan- 631 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201817/23Badi Door Se Aye Hai- 636 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201818/23Bade Acche Lagte Hain- 644 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201819/23Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara- 663 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201820/23Astitva...Ek Prem Kahani- 668 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201821/23Shagun- 688 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201822/23Yaha Main Ghar Ghar Kheli- 697 EpisodesUploaded by Zinia Bandyopadhyay on 17 Feb, 201823/23Gallery- RANKED: 23 Hindi TV Serials That Crossed 500 Episodes, But Did Not Complete 700 Episode Mark!

Sans the action and all the high end drama, by the end of Aiyaary, I felt that it was just a remake of, well, A Gentleman.The headline must have sounded ludicrous to you. I mean well, if you have just come out of Aiyaary, the two films are obviously different. The suspense in A Gentleman was resolved much earlier and well, there isn’t much angle of love or the death-defying action in Aiyaary. Also, the two films have a very different plotline, isn’t it?Well, then look closely. Were they really that different? Here are a few points that will prove that Aiyaary and A Gentleman are basically the same, except for Sidharth Malhotra and his same expressions:1. Sidharth Malhotra’s character goes rogue in both the films.Well, it is Sidharth’s character in both the films that decides to go against their superior and not follow their order.2. In both the films, Sidharth works in a group who existence is secret.While in Aiyaary, it is for a noble cause, in A Gentleman, it was for the benefit of one person.3. The main villain in both the films is an ex-Colonel who wants to sell Arms.While in Aiyaary, it was an ex-Army General, in A Gentleman it was illegal.4. In both cases, Sidharth’s character warns his immediate senior to leave all this and go somewhere.In AIyaary, it was more nuanced and the senior is the very talented Manoj Bajpayee’s Cl. Abhay Singh. In A Gentleman, it was Darshan Kumar.5. In both the films, Sidharth’s character gets to live free with his ‘girlfriend’.While the romantic angle in Aiyaary was silly, it had a lot to do with A Gentleman!6. Last but not the least, in both the films, Sidharth's character can change his look!Do you agree with the points? Let us know in the comments below. And if you have watched Aiyaary, do not forget to rate and review ithere.

It is very difficult to maintain your stardom in Bollywood and we have seen a lot of film stars fall from grace because they couldn't handle their success and stardom. A number of celebrities who could have gone on to achieve great heights in their film career have now faded into oblivion because of that one incident which ultimately destroyed their career.Few of these actors have been missing from action now while some of them are doing small roles in films and television but it is far from the days of glory they saw earlier in their career. It becomes very difficult for them to get back as the producers shy away from signing controversial figures as they think it would spell doom for their projects. Here are 8 Bollywood and TV stars whose career got destroyed over one incident:Aman Verma:The TV actor was a huge rage in the early 2000s and was one of the most popular faces on Television. He was caught red-handed in a sting operation conducted by a news channel asking for sexual favours and has since then appeared on screen very few times.Shakti Kapoor:The actor was caught in the same sting operation alongside Aman Verma and has hardly appeared in films since.Vijay Raaz:He was caught by the UAE police for possession of Drugs in Dubai during the shooting of Deewane Huye Pagal. He has received limited offers since then.Monica Bedi:The actress was appearing in big Bollywood films in the late 90s and early 2000s but was caught by the police with underworld don Abu Salem in Portugal and was jailed. She later came back to the entertainment world with Bigg Boss and has appeared in a few TV serials.Mamta Kulkarni:The actress was dropped from numerous projects during the mid-90s due to her connections with the underworld and when she later on married drug kingpin, Vicky Goswami.Vivek Oberoi:He himself has admitted numerous times that the feud withSalman Khandestroyed his career. The actor had called a press conference in 2003 where he alleged that a drunk Salam Khan called him over 40 times and threatened to kill him. Aditya Chopra referred to Vivek as the next SRK, those days are long gone.Mandakini:The actress was dropped from a majority of her Bollywood projects after photographs of her with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim surfaced.Shiney Ahuja:The actor was jailed on the charges of raping his maid and since then, he only appeared in a small role in Welcome Back in 2015.

One of the best ways for a Bollywood film to earn money at the box-office is turning it into a full-fledged franchise. A number of films have started franchises that have now turned into cash cows, like Dhoom, Golmaal, Housefull series etc. All of these films offer nothing new in terms of stories, character development or themes and mostly deliver recycled content and lame jokes.Still, being an established franchise helps and when you have some of the biggest Bollywood actors leading these franchises, audiences don't complain much. It is interesting to see that a majority of franchises that exist in Bollywood today, very few would have thought of capturing audience's imagination like that. On the other hand, there were films which were already planned as 2,3 or 5 film franchises but didn't get any sequel because either they didn't perform well or it simply didn't materialize. Here are 8 such films:Aabra Ka Daabra:The Harry Potter rip-off was more of a Parle G advertisement than a movie but it terrified the audiences in the end by confirming that there will be a part. Thank the old gods and the new, it didn't happen else Dumbledore would have died even before the Half-Blood Prince.Bluffmaster:The Abhishek Bachchan-Riteish Deshmukh starrer was commercially successful as well as received a positive reception from the critics. There were talks of a sequel but nothing ever materialized though both the actors are still up for it.Agent Vinod:Sriram Raghavan's spy-thriller was the first of a planned 5 film series. The ambitious project received good reviews but couldn't attract the audiences and hence the plans for a sequel were shelved.Ra.One:For a long time,Shah Rukh Khanwanted to make a sequel to his 2011 superhero film which didn't please the audiences as well as the critics. Since then, there have been no talks of a second part.Ek Villain:While rumours were rife thatSidharth MalhotraandAlia Bhattwill star in a sequel to Ek Villain, director Mohit Suri recently refuted the claims and said he is making a thriller with Aditya Roy Kapoor and there are no plans for an Ek Villain sequel.Mr India:Probably the best superhero sci-fi film to have come out of Bollywood, everyone was looking forward to a sequel and even director Shekhar wanted to make it. But nothing has materialized till now and no sequel is in pipeline as of now.Drona:The fantasy adventure superhero film became the biggest disaster of everyone's career who was associated with the film but that didn't deter the enthusiasm of director Goldie Behl who had already finished the script of the sequel when the first film released. Though after the poor returns at the box-office, plans for a sequel were shelved.Dostana:The Tarun Mansukhani directorial was one of the best films of 2008 and there have been talks of a sequel ever since. Though Tarun is coming back to Bollywood after a decade but not with Dostana 2.John Abrahamsaid in an interview that some films should be best left alone and its unlikely a sequel will be made.

I don’t want her to ever feel that it was not meant to be. It was meant in every possible way and she was the force of nature and nothing could stop her from coming into this world.”
