Colors’ Balika Vadhu starring Avika Gor (younger Anandi), Surekha Sikhrti, Toral Rasputra (older Anandi), Shashank Vyas, Sidharth Shukla was one of the hit shows back then. The show was about child marriage and how Anandi fought to eradicate the old malpractice from society. Well, after the mega-success of the first season of Balika Vadhu, the makers are now bringing the second season with Shreya Patel as the new Anandi. A promo of the same was recently shared on the channel’s official Instagram account where we see Shreya dressed up in a bridal get-up.
In the background, we get to hear the theme song of the serial and a voice-over that mentions Anandi will also fight against child marriage in society. Sharing the promo, they wrote, “Baal vivaah wo kupratha hai jo aaj bhi samaaj mein jeevit hai! Isko mitaane ke liye aa rahi hai ek nayi Anandi, ek nayi Balika Vadhu. #BalikaVadhu2 jald hi aa raha hai sirf #Colors par” In the promo, the new Anandi looks pretty younger than Avika Gor, who had essayed the same role in season one.
Speaking about the age, in an interview with BollywoodHungama, Avika revealed she was 10 when she took up the show. “When I started working I was seven-eight. When I did Balika Vadhu, I was 10. At that time, I didn't even realize what was happening. For me, it was just dressing up, going on the set and saying a few dialogues and just having fun. It was a hobby that's how it all started. I never looked at it as a show that is doing well.”
Meanwhile, Toral Rasputra who essayed the older Anandi in the show revealed the promo looks ‘extremely interesting’. “I have lived those moments as Anandi. I was a part of the show for a long time. I have an attachment to the show and the character. I am really looking forward to the show. I am waiting for what happens ahead,” she said in an interview.
