Pehredaar Piya Ki makers: Rishta Likhenge Hum Naya is not its sequel, we’ve changed the storyline

The makers of controversial TV show Pehredaar Piya Ki, which was pulled off air in August due to its “obnoxious” plot, have returned — this time on the “right track” — with a new entertainer Rishta Likhenge Hum Naya to showcase a fresh storyline with the same cast.Sony Entertainment Television had pulled Pehredaar Piya Ki off air after a lot of complaints to the Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC) against the show which revolved around an 18-year-old girl marrying a nine-year-old boy. The decision was reportedly taken under pressure from the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.We never thought that there was anything wrong in that story. Sometimes you can’t predict anything in advance. As makers, it’s our job to first identify if the show is going to be loved by the audience or not, will it give some good message. In that, we found that, ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’ was perfect,” Sumeet Mittal, Founder and Director of Shashi Sumeet Productions, told IANS on the set Rishta Likhenge Hum Naya here on Monday.“But, somewhere it derailed due to wrong rumours or gossips over social media by people who never watched that show. It was the fate of the show and we have to face it. Now we are back again with the same cast, but this time with fresh storyline.
