Seems like Jaat Ki Jugni was too rural for Sony TV's audience and that's why channel decided to stick to their usual style. Sony is known for urban shows and not rural family dramas. Pahredaar Piya Ki stars Tejaswi Prakash and Afaan Khan. The show is a story of marriage between an 18 year old girl and a 9 year old boy. The show has been shot in various locations of Rajasthan and has rich production value. It marks the return of Tejaswi after Swaragini in a royal avatar. The show also stars Parmeet Sethi, Suyyash Rai, Kishori Shahane, Jiten Lalwani in main roles.
Pahredaar Piya Ki is been produced by Shashi and Sumeet Productions. After Diya Aur Baati Hum and Tu Sooraj Mein Sanjh Piya Ki... this is third show from the production house with Rajasthan as backdrop. Tejaswi plays princess Diya in the show who gets married to a 9 year old Prince Ratan to protect the honour and commitment of her family. Though Diya is shown engaged to another prince, her life changes with Ratan entering her life. So rather than becoming a bride she becomes a protector of her husband. The channel is been categorically denying that it's not a child's marriage, it will be shown as Diya and Ratan are not married in the usual way. The show starts from 17 July on Sony Entertainment Television.
