Warning: Tears ahead.
It’s time to bid adieu to Lola Kutty, Purab Kohli, Dare to Date and indipop memories, because one of our favourite channels, that is, Channel V is now shutting down. Yes, we know a lot of our memories from the ’90s and early 2000s are linked very closely to Channel V and its super cool VJs.
A few days ago, news broke that Star India was pulling the plug on Channel V majorly because of low TRPs (YouTube and Netflix killed the TV stars, eh?). And even though most of us don’t even watch the channel anymore, it’s a big blow to all the memories we have with this channel.
Twitter was flooded with condolence messages:
There was a time when music on TV for me, meant only MTV and Channel V. Haven’t watched either in ages. But still a little sad to hear that V is shutting shop. Goodbye Channel V. Thank you for the memories. https://t.co/wfXeAjdAWi

Star India is shutting down Channel V & starting a Kannada sports channel instead. Wow. Those TRPs must be unmentionable!
