It all started with Shashi Sumeet Mittal's Sony TV
show, Pehredaar Piya Ki where a 9-year-old Ratan (Afaan Khan) was shown marrying an 18-year-old Diya (Tejasswi Prakash
). Not only did the viewers, but many of the telly actors too had not taken the show well while some were in favour of whatever was happening.
After much hullaboo, the show did go off-air suddenly, but only with a promise by the makers to return with a show on the same grounds. The makers did come back with a new show in the form of Rishta Likhenge Hum Naya
starring Rohit Suchanti
as the grown-up Ratan and Tejasswi as Diya.
The show has been received well by the viewers this time around now. However, with the track going back to something what we originally saw, this time around there was a 21 year Ratan marrying a 30 year Diya, courtesy Abhay's (Suyyash Rai) decision of not marrying Diya out of revenge.
What followed Abhay backing off from the wedding was nothing short of a typical Indian TV show, but in a rather mild version as Ratan decides to walk up to the mandap and fill sindoor in Diya's forehead.
Though we did know that the two will marry gradually, but under circumstances almost opposite to what happened when Ratan was 9, we did not see that coming.
This actually made us run a poll, where we asked the viewers themselves as to if this is acceptable or not, and this time around, everyone is completely fine with such a marriage.
Here's what the polls suggested:
Well, we think that there is in fact nothing wrong with the marriage, the idea or the show does not really harm any of the societal norms in any way.
