In search of justice
Ex co-producer of Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam moves court to get back her show.tv Updated: Jan 31, 2010 01:20 IST
It’s barely been a month that prime time daily,
Yeh Pyar Na Hoga Kam
went on air, and it’s already being dragged to court. Rajita Sharma, the former co-producer of the show, has moved court for being denied credit for her creative inputs on the show after the first few episodes.
Reports say, Sharma was forced out of her debut production due to creative differences, but she was involved in its pre-production for eight months. Though Sharma refuses to comment on the matter since it is subjudice, one of her associates says she was given credit in the initial episodes, but subsequently her name was dropped. “Creative Eye’s Dheeraj Kumar had become abusive on the sets. She was working with him for the first time. Rajita couldn’t take it after a point and was forced to leave. He made it sound like she left the show on her own terms because of creative differences with the channel which is not true,” says the associate.
Reel life love
Sources also claim that the story of the soap is also based on Sharma’s parents’ love saga; how her father, a Brahmin and her mother, a Kayasth met, and fell in love in Lucknow back in the 1970s. “The show was very close to her heart. She had no choice but to take the show back through legal means. She has been watching the show and is dissatisfied with the result,” says the associate, adding that Sharma was instrumental in casting actors, conducting workshops and writing a 100 episodes for the show.
Kumar, however, says, “The case has no meat. The channel would be in a better position to comment on this.” The channel refused to comment. Meanwhile buzz is that

might soon have a new producer. Apparently, the channel is unhappy with the way Kumar is treating the show.
