Deepika Singh's fracas with Shashi-Sumeet Productions is to be blamed for this, otherwise the picture would have been rosier

Without Deepika, Star Plus NOT Confident About Diya Aur Baati Hum 2

Diya Aur Baati Hum ended its successful run in 2016 and the makers, Shashi and Sumeet, are currently busy with the second instalment of the show which will start airing soon.

But since the last episode aired, a lot has gone down.

First of all, the show’s leading lady Deepika Singh has fallen out with the show-runners over her paycheque.

She has since refused to return to the franchise for part two of the TV soap. 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.

It looks like this show will go the same route as Iss Pyaar Ko Main Kya Naam Doon, starring Sanaya Irani and Barun Sobti.

The first season of the show became a fan favourite and the talk of the town. And the second season shifted from prime time to the 6 pm slot.

In the case of that show too, the show’s lead, Sanaya, had kicked the show and moved on to a new project while Barun too had a fall-out with the channel.

And then the audience rejected the show as it did not live upto the standards set by its predecessor.

So, is Diya Aur Baati Hum headed the same way?
