Right from its inception the show is known for taking up the social issues and causes and continues to do the same till date. Carrying on the trend of being an eye opener, Shashi-Sumeet Mittal Productions show, “Diya Aur Baati Hum” will now focus on the evils of honor killings which are very much rampant in the interiors of our country.
The upcoming track on the subject of honor killings will be related to the story of Mohit (Varunn Jain) and Emily (Pooja Singh). As seen in the past episodes Emily being from a different caste is facing trouble in getting married to Mohit due to the culture and thinking of the family elders. Although Bhabho (Neelu Waghela) has given her consent for their marriage they still face opposition from Maasa.
Maasa on learning about Emily belonging to a different caste will ask her to leave her house. The news about Emily being a Catholic will be leaked to the village Sarpanch by a women named Kairi who has a nursing a grudge as her own son was killed because he dared to opt for inter caste marriage. But before the villagers can lay their hands on Emily, Mohit along with the help of Sooraj will manage to flee from the village with her.
