His Storyy: Same-Sex Marriage Called Off In Ekta Kapoor’s Series; Find Out Why - EXCLUSIVE
As per plans, the gay couple in the new  series His Storyy played by Satyadeep Mishra and Mrinal Dutt were supposed to get married at the end of Season 1 which started streaming this week. The marriage was called off. And here is why. The producers Alt-Balaji and DING got cold feet about showing same-sex marriage.

One of the actors tells me, “Considering the way things are at the moment in our country, I am relieved that marriage didn’t  actually happen. The plan was to end season 1 with a Big Fat wedding showing Kunal (Satydeep Mishra) and Preet (Mrinal Dutt) tying the  knot. But I think the producers  chickened out, at least for this season.”

Apparently the marriage may happen in Season 2, provided the atmosphere that prevails in the country, dims down. “Otherwise Season 2 may not happen at  all,” informs the actor.

His Storyy is the coming-out  story of Kunal (Satyadeep Mishra) happily married to Sakshi (Priymani) for twenty years when Kunal  comes out gay with a food blogger Preet (Mrinal Dutt).

Praise has been conferred on the series for its tasteful aesthetic  presentation of  a sensitive  subject. It’s a pity that the makers had  to pull back at the  last minute leaving the same-sex couple’s relationship without the marital culmination that it deserves.
