Shreya Patel & Vansh Sayani roped in to play lead in COLORS Balika Vadhu Season 2
One of the most famous shows on Colors TV, Balika Vadhu is returning back. Yes you read that right. Television’s icon and nation’s most favorite character Anandi is back in a whole new avatar with Balika Vadhu Season 2. The last season created waves as it highlighted the grave issue of Baal Vivah (child marriage) through the trials and tribulations of an innocent child bride, Anandi. Her journey marked the dawn of a new age on Indian television.
Her innocence and her endearing story made home in every Indian’s heart. With the tradition of child marriage still prevalent in some parts of our country. The season two of the show will reflect a journey of new Anandi, who will take definitive steps to fight the injustice done to her. Set against the backdrop of Gujarat, the character of nayi Anandi will be essayed by Shreya Patel while Vansh Sayani will be seen essaying the role of Anandi’s husband, Jigar.
In the upcoming show, Anandi is strong, graceful, innocent and loves her family. She is passionate about dancing and Garba. And she is brave and isn’t afraid to call a spade a spade. Meanwhile Jigar has this innocent face, but he can be really stubborn at times.
Talking about essaying the role of Jigar, Vansh Sayani says, “Balika Vadhu came as an amazing opportunity and it was a very pleasant surprise for me. I was in love with Jigar’s character when I got the brief, because of the playful way he carries himself. I could relate with him at a lot of levels and the audition was also very smooth. I am very grateful and would like to thank my producers and COLORS for giving me the opportunity of taking the baton ahead with Balika Vadhu 2.”
Excited about playing Anandi’s extraordinary character, Shreya Patel says, “I had heard a lot about Balika Vadhu when I was growing up and was very excited when I got a call to audition for Anandi’s character. My family always told me that this character made a very special place in everyone’s heart and I will do my best to take forward the legacy. I feel Anandi and I both are similar in a lot of ways and I am very excited about this new journey.”
