Team Latestly

Actress Tejasswi Prakash was caught up in the eye of a storm by the name of Pehredaar Piya Ki. The actress took up a Sony TV show whose concept involved an 18-year old (Diya) marrying a 9-year-old boy (Ratan Maan Singh) after the latter's father asks her to protect her son at all costs. However, before the makers could steer their show towards a direction, the public backlash forced producers Shashi and Sumeet Mittal to shut the show. Khatron Ke Khiladi 10: The Pay Cheques for Karan Patel, Tejasswi Prakash, Karishma Tanna, Shivin Narang and Other KKK Players Revealed?.
