Tejasswi Prakash and Afaan Khan’s new show Pehredaar Piya Ki caused quite a furore in the television industry. Before it even premiered on television, people wrote it off on the basis of its promo, where a 9-year-old prince was shown filling sindoor in his 19-year-old bride's hairline. It's first episode, that aired on 17 July, somehow gave people more reasons to hate the show.
People didn't like how young Ratan sa was shown 'stalking' Diya. He was shown secretly clicking pictures of her. Later she also fell in the child's arms after seeing a cockroach, which further irked everyone. People found the 'romantic' angle between them quite distasteful, unsettling and cringe-worthy.
Not just the media, even celebrities like Karan Wahi got into the argument. While on one side a handful of people liked the fresh concept of the show, the majority of people on social media slammed it for allegedly promoting child marriages and paedophilia through it.
However, our poll result paints a totally different picture. On Thursday, we asked you guys whether Pehredaar Piya Ki deserved such severe backlash and we are surprised to tell you that almost 70% people think that people over reacted. The viewers of the show are willing to give the show some more time which is a great news for the entire team.
PPK has been set against the colorful back drop of Rajasthan. It seems the vibrancy and the grandeur of the show has won everyone's hearts. We hope that the makers prove all the haters wrong and surprise us with a unique story.
