Karan Wahi on Pehredaar Piya Ki: Don’t sell stupidity in the name of content
Television actor Karan Wahi has expressed his disappointment at the makers of Pehredaar Piya Ki, Sony’s new daily soap, for showing a romantic angle between an adult woman and a preteen boy.
Wahi took to Facebook to share his concern on the quality of content being shown on television. “Dear producer and channel, I understand we cant make shows like How I Met Your Mother and Friends, and honestly I don’t expect us to also, but for the love of god and for the reason we all got in this industry please don’t sell me stupidity in the name of content which gives TRP because honestly no one is watching this,” he wrote in the post
“Leave aside other people, I think the fraternity only doesn’t (watch the show). I wish and pray well for everyone who is a part of this show also but it would be great if we started enjoying our work and not just working because we don’t have an option. Not to sound arrogant but we can be better than this,” he added.
Pehredaar Piya Ki aired its first episode on Monday. It tells the story of a 9-year-old prince who is put under the care and security of his adult wife.
Even the promos, when released about a month ago, got a lot of flak for showing a romantic relationship between a child and an adult. The trailer showed child actor Afaan Khan put vermillion on Tejaswi Prakash, causing a furore among viewers.
