There's a hunt going on to find the right grown up Prince Ratan Singh for Diya Ratan Singh (played by Tejasvi Prakash). After all the criticisms and agitations faced by Pehredaar Piya Ki, looks like now the makers want to give the show a 12 years leap. As per a report on Hindustan Times, auditions for adult Prince Ratan have begun and the producers are getting quite a lot of response. With the kind of hell raised by people over the content of the show, it has grown super popular. Therefore, many men are trying their hand to bag the role. “We have been looking for actors to play the role of a 21-year-old prince. Since the time we spread the word, we have been getting a lot of applications. Interested candidates have been sending audition tapes,” says the source close to the show and further adds, "It will be great if we get a fresh face. Whoever is showing interest is being asked to perform a scene from the show.”
As soon as word on this spread, speculations of the makers taking a 12 year leap for damage control, started doing the rounds. However, there is no truth to those reports as it's going as per the script jotted down by the writers. “Since the show went on air in July, the leap will be shown in October. So unlike what is being said, we have not planned the leap to put an end to all the criticism around the show,” informs the source. Well, they stood by their show when it received flak from the audience so it's fair to give them benefit of the doubt.

Pehredaar Piya Ki sure set internet on a new high as it's content left everyone talking. Because of the concept where an 18 year old girl is married off to a 9 year old boy as a means for her to play his protector, people didn't buy it and instead badmouthed on the same. The negative reviews reached such an extent that an online petition was sent to Smriti Irani, who furthered the petition to BCCC. Luckily, it worked on the show's favour. An official statement was released by Sony Entertainment Television confirming that the show will still be aired but time slot has been pushed to 10 pm. “As per the decision of BCCC we are shifting the time slot of Pehredaar Piya Ki to 10pm: Mon-Fri.
