The three girls shortlisted for the role include Pratyusha Banerjee [A] from Jamshedpur, Nivedita Tiwari[B] from Lucknow and Ketaki Chitale [C] from Mumbai.
However, according to the rumours , itâ€™s Jamshedpurâ€™s Pratyusha Banerjee who is said to be finalized as the new Anandi. The channel is expected to make an announcement on this in a few days.
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 Anandiâ€™s life, with the five-year leap, so itâ€™s a challenging period for us.â€
About Avika Gor and Avinash Mukherjee, he said, â€œIt was great to have young talent and because of them, our show did well.â€
Later on we asked him whether there would be a similar poll for Jagya as well? â€œIt would be different strategy that we are planning for his character,â€ he said.
So keep waiting for our new Anandi and so donâ€™t forget to watch Balika Vadhu every Monday to Friday at 8 pm only on Colors.
