WATCH: This Is How Little Afaan Transformed Into Pehredar Piya Ki's Rajput Ratan Singh In 2 Months
An upcoming TV show called Pehredaar Piya Ki has generated a lot of debate online. Viewers expressed their angst worldwide on all platforms on seeing the promos of the show where a little kid is married off to a much older woman in a Rajput Royal family.
While the story is best known to the makers (who have not reacted to this massive outburst from people on the internet), this little kid Afaan, who plays the role of Rajput Ratan Singh is the new entry on Indian Television.
It will be interesting to see if he wins hearts like other child artists have done in the past. Will he beat the popularity of Ruhanika Dhawan (Ruhi from Yeh Hai Mohabbatein), and Bhavesh Balchandani (Veer from Veera)? Only time will tell.
Meanwhile, the makers have been releasing more promos, one of which shows the transformation of Afaan to becoming Rajput Ratan Singh. The video shows a Rajasthani mentor who helps him correct his diction, table manners and teaches him other royal etiquettes. The video suggests that more than 25 boys auditioned for the show, and finally Afaan made it!
The innocence and confidence of this kid at this tender age makes us wonder if he knows the meaning of the debate around his show. When internet can’t handle the relationship of a kid with an older woman as husband and wife, it will be interesting to know how much Afaan understands the consequences and reactions of the first promo right now.
Watch his transformation and audition here.
