Ever since the beginning of this new show, Pehredaar Piya Ki, people have been slamming the showmakers who came with this idea. The show basically shows marriage between a 10 year old boy and a 18 year old girl. The trailers of the show shocked everyone when we saw this young boy filling in sindoor in this 18 year old girl’s “maang”. We really couldn’t understand what made the showmakers come with this idea.
And when the show finally began, we couldn’t digest seeing this young boy called “Ratan Sa” chasing his so called angel, “Diya”. A lot of telly celebrities came out to slam the show. Now after this strange marriage, the show is slowly moving towards the honeymoon phase and we just can’t accept it.
Recently, Mansi Singh started this petition with around 51,000 people signing the agreement on Change.Org. The petition has been sent to Smriti Irani. The petition reads, “Pehredar Piya Ki, a 10-year-old impressionable little kid (“piya”) caressing and stalking a lady who’s more than double his age and filling sindoor in her “maang” is being telecasted at prime time 8:30pm on SONY. (Family time) It is to be devoured by the entire nation. Imagine the kind of influence it will steadily and perpetually infuse in the viewers mindset. We want a ban on the serial. We do not want our kids to be influenced by such TV serials. Join us in signing the petition to ban this serial (sic).”
Actors of the show, Tejaswi and Suyyash feel that people are just judging the show without getting to understand the entire story. When Karan Wahi slammed the show, Suyyash came out and said how people are overreacting without knowing anything about it. Tejaswi who plays Diya on the show also feels that there is nothing wrong in what they have been showing.
What do you have to say about it? Do we need shows like these? Should the show be banned? Let us know in the comments section below.
