Actor Rohit Suchanti says controversial TV show Pehredaar Piya Ki, which was pulled off air in August due to its “obnoxious” plot, proved to be lucky for him as it gave him a chance to be a part of Rishta Likhenge Hum Naya - a new show featuring the same star cast. “I saw the posters of Pehredaar Piya Ki when it was launched. That time I thought, ‘What is this? A young boy and a (an older) girl getting married. It’s weird.’ I won’t lie even I imagined that it might focus on a mother-son relationship, but when I heard the story, I was amazed,” Rohit told IANS.

“For me, it’s good that that show went off air early as I became a part of the new one. I have not seen any episode of Pehredaar Piya Ki. It has proven to be lucky for me. “The new show is different from Pehredaar Piya Ki. I joined this show because I found the role challenging. To be honest, I became a part of this show because I didn’t have work. I just gave the audition and was rejected for the first time. After sometime, they called me again and luckily, I got selected that time,” he added. He says the “relationship that the audience was not able to see” in Pehredaar... is what they are going to show in a different way now.

“I am not expecting any kind of controversy with this show as the boy is now 21. It’s just that the girl is older than him, but we can see couples in real life where the man is younger than the girl,” he said.However, Rohit is hopeful that there is nothing offensive in the new show.“That show was definitely offensive for few people as they start following whatever they see on TV. That’s why the makers had to end that show in between. As an actor, it’s a huge opportunity for me. I have to live up to the expectations that Pehredaar Piya Ki had created in viewers’ mind.”
