Controversy[edit]

The show has landed in controversy on numerous occasions where it has been seen as a bad influence by its sensational portrayal of crime.[11] In February 2018 in Delhi, a man residing in New Friends Colony was accused of rape by his 11-year-old daughter.[12] The 11-year-old girl later admitted in court, said that she complained against her father after watching Savdhaan India and that she "exaggerated things" before her mother and the police.[12] She said that the show gave her the impression that her father's innocent kisses were something ‘wrong’.[12] Her father was acquitted by the court.[12]

Cast[edit]

  • Each story had a different star cast. Sometimes the actors/actresses who had appeared in some episodes of the series reappeared in other episodes of the series.
