Jaat Na Puchho Prem Ki: Casteism and honor killing is one such prevailing curse in Indian society that requires immediate attention and awareness.
Though practices are highly criticized in today’s time there is no denying that the society is still not ready to accept changes and inter-caste marriage seems like something that will require ages to be treated as normal.
The condition of belonging to the same caste is something that goes without saying in matters like marriage alliance.
Entertainment industry holds in itself the power of spreading messages and let people know the present scenario.
The Hindi serial ‘Jaat Na Puchho Ki’ is a welcome initiative by the &TV to challenge this prevailing practice and to spread awareness against such orthodox outlooks.
The main story of the serial revolves around two lovers who happen to be of different castes. The serial is all about the odds they face because of living in a society where inter-caste marriage is not at all accepted and even honor killing is not uncommon.
The serial streamed its first episode on Tuesday, 18th June 2019 and it is aired on &TV at 8 PM from Monday to Tuesday.

Badal is shown as a sensible, serious, mature and thoughtful character while Suman, on the contrary, is a bubbly, confident, fun loving girl who is rarely afraid of anyone.
Badal and Suman are college mates and are deeply in love with each other. The major issue in their love story is that Suman belongs to a rich Brahmin family while Badal is a member of a lower caste society which is not treated fare in their hometown.
Suman’s father, Pujan is another checkpoint in their love story. Pujan is a professor by profession but is also involved in various political activities in the town.
