The Information and Broadcasting Ministry of India has taken off the serial Pehredaar Piya Ki from national television without any prior notice. The show was surrounded with controversies from its first day since the teaser was released on Sony Entertainment Television. Social media people trolled the makers and their concept of a 18-year old woman marrying a 9 year-old boy. They crossed all the limits when they showed the 9 year-old boy go on honeymoon with a girl twice his age.
This was actually hard to digest thus the producers received severe criticism. Although, the serial did not show any obscene scenes, the makers of the show received flak of the audience. Trolls and abuses started pouring in on social media.The makers of Pehredaar Piya Ki serial feel heartbroken after this harsh decision of I&B Ministry. Here’s what Sumeet Mittal, the producer of the show had to say about this abrupt shutdown of the show “It’s a very painful process to end the show abruptly. It surely feels bad. Taking a show off air is like suffering a miscarriage. We work hard for each of our creation, without thinking about the outcome. Whether the show works or not, we put in the same amount of hard work and passion. We didn’t want to wait for the audience to reject our show.”
Sumeet Mittal also said:”We treat audience as an asset so we don’t want to lose them. We will return with a new show and the same team very soon. In fact, we have started working on the same. The next show will have a better story. The actors will be with us till then.”
The leading TV actress Tejasswi Prakash who played the protagonist in the serial Pehredaar Piya Ki is all set and geared up for her next show which will be aired in place of Pehredaar Piya Ki, that’s something the actress can cheer about. Let’s hope that this new serial brings in new hopes and happiness for Tejasswi Prakash, the makers of the show and the entire star cast.
