Deepika Singh’s Diya Aur Baati Hum Has A New Face

No Deepika in this. The show will be titled Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piyaji. It was launched in Kerala

After the grand success of Diya Aur Baati Hum, the makers announced the second season of the show in Kochi this weekend. The show was launched by Bhabho aka Santosh Rathi of DABH played by Neelu Vaghela and she announced the title of upcoming second season amid lots of suspense and drama. The sequel of the show will be called Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piyaji.

The show will take off from where Diya Aur Baati Hum ended. The new season will take a leap of 20 years and showcase the Rathi family with a few old and new faces.


Neelu Vaghela will also get a style makeover as her new look was revealed in Kochi. While she donned chaniya choli in Diya Aur Baati Hum, in the sequel, she will be seen more in saris and specs. The original lead cast of Diya Aur Baati Hum--Deepika Singh and Anas Rashid will not be a part of the sequel and it will be centred around their children Ved and Kanak. While fans might miss the original pair, but Deepika Singh's fracas with Shashi-Sumeet Productions is to be blamed for this, otherwise the picture would have been rosier.

A portion of the show will also be shot in various locales in Kerala. The show will continue to be based on the theme of women empowerment much like the first season.

While the makers are prepping up with the second season, a lot has gone down since the last episode aired. First of all, the show’s leading lady Deepika Singh has fallen out with the show-runners over her paycheque.

After that, Sumeet-Shashi suffered another setback when Star Plus demoted the planned show from the prime time slot of 9 PM to 2o’clock in the afternoon.Sources tell us that the top brass at Star Plus decided to move the show because they were not confident that it will get the same TRPs as the original show.
