We spoke to Sujoy Wadwa, producer of the show to get his reaction on the completion of 500 episodes and about the new Anandi . “Our concept was different from the rest of the shows, which is what worked in our favour. We are getting into a new phase in Anandi’s life, with the five-year leap, so it’s a challenging period for us.”

About Avika Gor and Avinash Mukherjee, he said, “It was great to have young talent and because of them, our show did well.”

Later on we asked him whether there would be a similar poll for Jagya as well? “It would be different strategy that we are planning for his character,” he said.

So keep waiting for our new Anandi and so don’t forget to watch Balika Vadhu every Monday to Friday at 8 pm only on Colors.
