In a shocking turn of events and what seems to have been a decision waiting to happen, Sony TV has cancelled their show Pehreedar Piya Ki without informing the actors. The show had received a lot of negative feedback for the way they had portrayed the story, an 8/9 year old kid falling in love and getting married to an adult woman. The enraged audience also started an online petition to discontinue the show.
The channel did not air the last nights episode of the show and reports are to believe that the show will be pulled off air. Speaking about the same, Suvyash Rai, one of the actors who was part of the show spoke to a leading portal, he stated, "I heard, I heard and probably it's true but I haven't received any confirmation from the team. I had no idea, so I spoke to the producer and Tejaswi last night so they told me they will confirm by today. It is a very sad thing, for the producer, for the cast for everybody connected to the show, especially the technician team, the spot dada, the makeup and hair people."
He was pretty optimistic about the decision and feels the producers will find a way out of it, adding, "When something like this happens overnight it's a very sad thing, but I don't know because all this while I wasn't shooting but definitely the other actors will have to face the brunt. But also knowing the team Sony, the producers, they definitely do something about this, they won't let it just go. I am waiting to see what they do."
The channel is presently planning to fill the slot with re-runs of one of their older shows until the situation is resolved.
