Gone are the days of ‘Malgudi Days’, B.R. Chopra’s ‘Mahabharata’, ‘Ramayana, ‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’ and many other legendary TV shows that used to have good scripts. Indian TV serials are now famous for all the wrong reasons. From saas bahu drama to shitty ‘Nagin’ series, we get to see every possible nonsense on Television these days.
But, ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’ has really lowered the bar. A TV show that is being aired on Sony Entertainment Channel is showing a love story between a 10 year-old kid and an adult woman!
Yes, you read that right. The first episode even showed a 10 year-old stalking the woman and it’s not just us who are offended by the script of the show.
Actor/anchor, Karan Wahi, has slammed the makers of ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’ in his recent Facebook post and has urged the makers to think of a good script.
Here’s what Karan wrote:
Dear producer and channel..I understand we cant make shows like ‘How I Met Your Mother’ and ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’, and honestly I don’t expect us to also, but for the love of God and for the reason we all got in this industry please don’t sell me stupidity in the name of content which gives TRP because honestly, no one is watching this. Leave aside other people I think the fraternity only doesn’t. I wish and pray well for everyone who is a part of this show also but it would be great if we started enjoying our work and not just working because we don’t have an option…Not to sound arrogant but we can be better than this.
However, Suyyash Rai, ex-Bigg Boss contestant, who is also a part of the show has urged the viewers to wait and let the story unfold. In a post on Instagram, Suyyash has requested people to have patience. He hasn’t said anything against the views of Karan Wahi, but has asked the viewers not to jump to conclusions.
Here’s what he wrote,
Pehredaar Piya Ki ❤️ ❤️ @tejasswiprakash baby smile 🙂 plz ❤️Guys whatever @imkaranwahi said its his POV (point of view) no one can question him neither me nor you guys.But this doesn’t change the fact that WE the whole team of #PPK we love this show and we all have worked really hard for it and we still are andddd we will ❤️ our motive is to entertain you guys not promote child marriage or anything.This show is different, please dont judge it and jump onto conclusions 🙏🏻If a channel like @sonytvofficial has approved the show they must have thought something right ??? Even the producers must have thought a lot before making this and investing soo much money 🙏🏻 its my request to all, please watch it first and then decide 🙂 maybe m wrong MAYBE 🙂 but lets wait n then decide.
Love to all ❤️❤️ n thanku for such a good response for the first episode .❤️@tejasswiprakash baby smile 🙂 plz ❤️
In India, people follow TV serials religiously. The whole family sits together and watches TV shows. But shows like this can have a major impact on kids and we are glad that Karan Wahi raised his voice. The plot might change in the future but what they are showing right now is not right.
