Viewers Are Signing A Petition To Ban ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’ And It Already Has 50k Supporters!
India signs a petition to ban the TV serial ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’, a story of a 10-year-old boy being married to an 18-year-old girl.
‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’, the TV show that is aired on Sony TV has a bizarre story that every Indian must already know. The serial revolves around a romantic story blossoming between a 10-year-old boy and a young girl. The show had already garnered a lot of thrashing when they came out with their first teaser, however, Indian public was left stunned and shocked after the first episode was aired.
The show glorifies stalking, proposals of marriage, has the not-so-normal couple go on a honeymoon and what not. Karan Wahi from the television industry along with Twitter too expressed their disbelief at such scripts being relayed on national TV.
And just when you start thinking that such shows might actually have an audience, just enough to satiate their finances, the daily soap audience of India has taken matters in its hands. Recently, one of the viewers started a campaign with change.org signing a petition to Cabinet minister-Ministry of information and broadcasting Smriti Zubin Irani, to ban the show on immediate effect.
Surprisingly, the makers of PPK seem to have no qualms about the show and asked the public to ‘give it a chance’. The lead actress Tejaswi Prakash responded to the online petition saying,
“I think it’s really progressive. But again, a lot of people believe in judging a book by its cover… They love being judgmental and people have nothing better to do than judging somebody else’s work. Then okay, what can I do? I feel it’s just a story and fiction. It’s just a story that we are telling people. So how can you judge any story? You like it okay, you don’t like it, so, you don’t like it. We are not professors, we are not trying to teach you anything.” She told IANS.
“It also happened in ‘Game Of Thrones’… People love ‘Game Of Thrones’ and if the same thing happens in ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’, then it’s an issue,”
In case you have missed upon the levels to which this Indian TV serial has gone down to, here’s an honest review by BookMyTv.
