As per plans, the gay couple in the new series His Story played by Satyadeep Mishra and Mrinal Dutt was supposed to get married at the end of Season 1 which started streaming this week. The marriage was called off. And here is why: the producers Alt-Balaji and DING got cold feet about showing a same-sex marriage.

One of the actors said, “Considering the way things are at the moment in our country I am relieved that marriage didn’t actually happen. The plan was to end season 1 with a Big Fat wedding showing Kunal (Satydeep Mishra) and Preet (Mrinal Dutt) tying the knot. But I think the producers chickened out, at least for this season.”

“Apparently the marriage may happen in Season 2, provided the atmosphere of intolerance that prevails in the country, dims down. Otherwise, Season 2 may not happen at all,” informs the actor.

Kunal (Satyadeep Mishra) has been happily married to Sakshi (Priyamani) for twenty years when Kunal comes out as gay with a food blogger Preet (Mrinal Dutt).

The series has received praise for its tasteful artistic treatment of a delicate subject. It’s a shame the producers had to bail out at the last minute, leaving the same-sex couple’s romance in jeopardy.
