Pehredaar Piya Ki landed in trouble for its unusual concept. The show that revolved around an 18-year-old woman (Diya) getting married to a nine-year-old boy (Ratan), received a lot of flak from the audiences and the makers had to shut down the show.
PPK makers had revealed that they will be back with a new show and solid content. Recently, a short promo was revealed by the makers. The promo showed Tejaswi Prakash Wayangankar as Diya. Many speculated the new show to be PPK sequel.
