Pehredaar Piya Ki’s producers have stepped out to defend their content amid all the controversy
Sony TV’s show Pehredaar Piya Ki is constantly finding itself in one controversy after another right since the show started airing a few weeks back. However, the latest controversy has forced the makers to step out and give their viewpoint as the fate of the show could be in serious trouble. Recently, there were reports about a group of people demanding to ban the show and even sending out a petition to the information and broadcast minister. These resent developments has led to the makers of the show, Shashi and Sumeet Mittal to reveal their side of the story. The producers have defended their content saying “We are not propagating child marriage, please understand the root of our story. Here the father of Rattan, Dada Hukum (Parmeet Sethi) had earlier saved Diya’s life; hence she was indebted to him. He in a way selfishly asked her hand in marriage for Ratan to protect his son. Agreed there could have been other relationships to protect, but this is our story.” Talking about the Suhaag Raat controversy, the producer said, “we have shown nothing inappropriate. All households where marriages take place have first night /honey moon talk, do kids there get inspired to get married early?” The makers have also rubbished rumors of showing controversial content to increase TRP’s saying that the show is getting good viewership because people have liked the show. Moreover, the producer has also revealed that there will soon be a leap taking place which will focus on the love story between a 30 year old woman and a 21 year old man and this will be a progressive storyline.
