‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’ actress to take part in ‘Bigg Boss 11’

Tejaswi Prakash, the leading actress of Sony’s band show, ‘Pehredaar Piya Ki’ has been approached for the popular reality show, ‘Bigg Boss 11’, hosted by Salman Khan.

The 25-year-old actress confirmed about the same, she said, "Yes I have been approached for the show, but I am not too sure about it."

Following complaints regarding the content of the show, Sony prematurely pulled of the show. The show drew lots of negative criticism from day one due to its objectionable plot of a 10-year-old boy gets married to a 18-year-old girl. The decision of the show to take off air came after few days of Broadcasting Content Complaints Council (BCCC) direction to shift the show from prime time to late night slot.

An online petition has been moved for a ban on the TV show. Viewers felt that the love story of a 18-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy will inject negative effect on the society.

However, Tejaswi defended the show, saying, "I think it's really progressive. But again, a lot of people believe in judging a book by its cover... They love being judgmental and people have nothing better to do than judging somebody else's work. Then okay, what can I do?"

"I feel it's just a story and fiction. It's just a story that we are telling people. So how can you judge any story? You like it okay, you don't like it, so, you don't like it. We are not professors, we are not trying to teach you anything."

Tejaswi Prakash feel there is nothing wrong in the script.

"No, it's not what a normal 'suhag raat' and honeymoon is like. Obviously, me and Ratan are not married to have babies. It's different. Once people watch it and then they find it yucky or anything, then I would be fine and understand. 

"There is nothing wrong that we have shown."
