Balika Vadhu is one of those television programs that has stayed with us even after being taken off the air. We are still thinking about the ground-breaking show on child marriage that ended up rousing up many people in the country with its message.
The show’s innocent questioning about child marriage by Little Anandi, played by Avika Gor, sparked a nationwide discussion on the sensitive matter. The show is back with another season as Balika Vadhu season 2.
About the previous show:
Balika Vadhu was first aired in 2008 and was canceled in 2016. The program has seen a lot of twists and turns over the last eight years, as well as new characters. The narrative, however, couldn’t keep the audience’s interest for long. The show’s TRPs fell, and the producers decided to call it a day. Do you know that after 2000 episodes, the show was inducted into the Limca Book of Records as the longest-running daily fiction soap?
Last year, during the pandemic, the show was re-run, as were many other classic television shows. Fans were treated to a treat, but the real fun is still to come. With a new season, Colors is bringing back Balika Vadhu season 2.
Balika Vadhu’s season 2 was just unveiled with a teaser on social media by the show’s creators. The channel shared a video of the small girl playing Anandi and her mother enjoying her and contemplating a good boy for her on Instagram.

According to the caption, “Baal vivaah who kupratha hai jo Aaj bhi samaj mein jeet hai! Isko mitaane ke liye janm liya hai ek nayi Anandi, ek nayi Balika Vadhu ne. Balika Vadhu Season 2 jald hi aa raha hai sirf #Colors par. #BalikaVadhu2.”
Balika Vadhu season 2 will revolve around child marriage once again, but as the teaser hints, the little girl’s trip will put an end to India’s current child marriage tradition. It’ll be fascinating to watch how the story portrays the path of tiny Anandi as she deals with the numerous challenges that come her way at such a young age.
The channel recently aired another ad for the show in which Shreya Patel, who will play Anandi on the show, debuted her first look.

The much-anticipated show returns yet again:
The much-loved show Balika Vadhu will return to Indian television shortly for its second season. According to a new trailer, Shreya Patel has been cast as the new Anandi, who will battle to eliminate the practice of child weddings.
The trailer starts with a Grih Pravesh ceremony before transporting her to a white desert. Anandi is dressed as a bride, complete with bangles and crimson dye on her hands. In addition, the new Anandi appears to be younger than Avika Gor, who performed the same character in the first season.
In June, the show’s first trailer was published, featuring a young child dressed in a traditional red skirt with her head wrapped in a dupatta. While she was learning to walk, her mother assured her that she would soon find an equally gorgeous spouse for her.
