There had been reports of Pehredaar Piya Ki is going off air but the channel was later asked to shift the show to 10PM slot and Sony TV agreed to the terms released by BCCC. However, the channel lately starting even more legal problems, to protect its image, Sony TV yesterday killed Pehredaar Piya Ki.
The channel has now released a statement confirming that Pehredaar Piya Ki has been pulled off-air. The entire cast and crew were disheartened by the channel’s decision as the leap was coming but suddenly Sony TV turned its face. The channel released the following statement.
“Effective 28th August 2017, we are pulling off our programme, Pehredaar Piye Ki, from television. While we understand that the decision to end this serial will be disappointing to those whose creative energies are vested in it, namely, its crew and cast, we (as a channel) are convinced that we will be better served by focusing instead on developing viewer interest in our upcoming, new shows. We are grateful to all the artists, producers and fans of our shows and request you to graciously support the viewership of our newer ventures.”
Pehredaar Piya Ki featured Tejasswi Prakash and Afaan Khan in the lead roles. The show had good ratings but the petitions and protest from the viewers forced the channel to pull the plug on Pehredaar Piya Ki.
