The show was started in 2011 and was directed by Rohit Raj Goyal. The serial featured Anas Rashid aka Sooraj and Deepika Singh aka Sandhya in lead roles. Although the show was quite famous due to its unique plot, storyline and exceptional performances by the cast is facing a real challenge in terms of TRP ratings. We also heard that the makers of the show are upset with the lead actors Deepika Singh (Sandhya) and Anas Rashid (Sooraj), who are throwing tantrums on the sets. A few months back, the two made headlines when Deepika slapped her co-star Anas for his apparent inappropriate behaviour. Soon the issue was solved by Cine & TV Artistes’ Association (CINTAA) but since then the two are not in good terms.

The producer of ‘Diya Aur Baati Hum’ Shashi Mittal, refuted the reports which stated that the lead character is throwing tantrums on sets. She was quoted by a web portal saying,”It’s like a family. There is nobody who is throwing tantrums. If the show goes off air, it’s all because of ratings. Even though there have been fluctuations in the ratings, our show continues to be in the top 10 shows. I haven’t received any official intimation from the channel. We have been hearing news about the show going off air for the last one year.”
“At one point of time, the show was the top show on the channel, but in the last few months, the ratings haven’t been steady. Also, the makers are quite fed up of the tantrums of the lead pair of Deepika Singh and Anas Rashid who aren’t the best of friends. In fact, last year Deepika had even slapped Anas while they were shooting and it was after CINTAA stepped in that the matter was resolved. There is a show that’s being made on the life of filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt that might be replacing the show,” a source told Times of India.
The current episode of “Diya Aur Baati Hum” shows that Sandhya is pregnant and the entire Rathi family is enjoying the precious moments. We are sure fans will miss Sooraj and Sandhya’s unique love story and their chemistry onscreen. Stay tuned for more updates.
