This afternoon, Deepika Singh took to her Instagram account to PROMOTE and cheer on the second season of Diya Aur Baati Hum. Take a look:
In the video, the actress requests viewers to shower Tu
Sooraj Main Saanjh Piyaji with the same love they gave to the Diya Aur Baati
Hum. Needless to say, this clip sent fans into a tizzy. If it had the same
effect on you too and left you questioning if all is settled between Deepika
and Shashi-Sumeet Productions, this one’s for you.
On Friday, Deepika along with Sumeet (of Shashi-Sumeet Productions), Sushant Singh and Amit Behl of CINTAA (Cine & TV Artists Association) and a few members from IFTPC (Indian Film and Television Producers Council) met for an hour-long meeting at the CINTAA office in Andheri.
While things were headed nowhere initially, gradually a common ground was achieved.
Says a source, “Sumeet came to a conclusion that if he doesn’t pay up, his production house will get blacklisted and that’s the last thing he wants. Deepika, on the other hand, realised that there is no point in dragging the matter further.”
So did Deepika get the due amount? “No, she got a substantial amount but had to forfeit some. This is a common scenario when two parties fight. Eventually they come to a mutual agreement, otherwise the TV industry will never stop fighting. It’s the sad truth.”
SpotboyE.com can also tell you that Deepika has promised to be positive about the new season and the video is probably her way to keeping her word.
For those who have come in late, in November last year, we broke the story of Deepika, who is expecting her first baby this year, having not been paid her dues of Rs 1.14 crore by makers of her show, Diya Aur Baati Hum, Shashi and Sumeet .
And then, in a sudden turnaround, Shashi & Sumeet sent a DEBIT NOTE of Rs 16 lakh to Deepika.
Shashi-Sumeet then slapped her with a legal notice to which she responded by saying that not even her shadow should be a part of Diya Aur Baati Hum 2 .
After that, Sumeet-Shashi suffered a setback when Star Plus demoted the planned show from the prime time slot of 9 PM to 2o’clock in the afternoon. Sources told 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.
In the light of this video, all we can say is, all’s well that ends well.
