The banned episode, 'Love Beyond Labels,' takes an intimate look at the remarkable journey of Tista and Dipan, whose love story unfolds against the backdrop of their gender transition surgeries. This unconventional narrative has not only left audiences astonished but has also faced backlash in certain regions, raising discussions about cultural sensitivities and acceptance.

The series draws inspiration from the narratives highlighted on the India Love Project, initiated by former journalists Priya Ramani, Samar Halarnkar, and Niloufer Venkatraman. Guided by six directors, including Akshay Indikar, Archana Phadke, Collin D’Cunha, Hardik Mehta, Shazia Iqbal, and Vivek Soni, Love Storiyaan premiered on Amazon Prime Video worldwide on February 14, coinciding with Valentine's Day.

Despite the controversy surrounding the banned episode, the series as a whole has garnered attention for its innovative storytelling and has sparked conversations about love beyond societal labels.
