Each episode was 24 minutes in duration. In April 2012, the first Maha Episode of ASA was aired which was 46 minutes. Two more Maha Episodes were aired in May & June 2012. On 11 June 2012, it was confirmed that Life Ok was going to change the program line-up, and on doing this they decided to end Aasman Se Aage due to it getting constant low trp’s. The decision lead to protests from many die-hard fans of the show – the channel was criticized for cancelling the show within 2 months of its airing, leading to speculation that the decision may have been politically motivated.
The show tells the story of Meenakshi, a talented but poor slum girl who gets the opportunity of a lifetime to be on a dance reality show on TV called Aasman Se Aage.
ASA was both a drama about dancing as well as a critical examination of reality shows, laying bare behind-the-scene exploitation and manipulations of the medium. It was promoted with the tagline ‘the reality behind reality shows’.
