Fans enjoy seeing their favourite movie actors on both the big and small screens. However, watching too many of the same movies week after week on television could be depressing and even push some viewers over the brink.

On Wednesday, a letter that petitioned a television network to cease airing the virtually weekly Sunday family drama Sooryavansham (1999), starring Amitabh Bachchan, went viral. The sender of the letter did not hold back when it came to expressing his opinions plainly and explicitly in Hindi, which may not please die-hard Amitabh Bachchan supporters.

The letter stated, “Courtesy of your channel, me and my family now know Heera Thakur (character played by the Big B in the film) and his family (Radha, Gauri) like we know our own kin. We can recite all the dialogues by heart. I want ask how many more times will you (the channel) air this film? How many times have they planned to screen this movie again? Who will bear responsibility if such repeated screenings of the same movie affects my mental peace and sanity? I humbly request you to redress my grievance on priority.”

The sender only used the name “Sooryavansham-pirit” (tormented by Sooryavansham) and provided no more information about himself. The letter was sent to the channel’s Mumbai office along with a request for information, to which the sender expressed the hope of receiving a response under the 2005 Right to Information Act.

The letter received reactions from internet users after becoming popular on social media. A netizen tweeted, “Don’t waste gajar ka halwa on them who deserve Sooryavansham wali kheer.”

Another Twitterati wrote, “I’ve never seen anything more on repeat than Sooryavansham.”

The film also featured Soundrya, Jayasudha, Anupam Kher, and Kader Khan in addition to Amitabh Bachchan.
