Following the phenomenal success of the popular show Balika Vadhu, the producers have announced a second season with a whole new cast. The new show will premiere on August 9, and fans are thrilled with excitement. Despite the fact that Avika Gor, who played young Anandi in the first season, will not appear in the second, she will provide her support to the daily soap on numerous platforms in order to promote the new season.

In an interview with Etimes, Avika said, “I will be telling people to watch the new season because it’s very similar to the first one. I have a soft corner for BV…it changed my life. So, when I was approached to become a part of the new journey in a small way, I jumped at the opportunity.”

However, Avika not just wanted to promote Balika Vadhu 2 but also would have loved to play the grown-up Anandi.

“Oh my God! I would have loved to play the grown-up Anandi in Balika Vadhu 2. I would have jumped into it. Why not? The show has given me so much as an artist. Had the makers offered the part to me, I am sure that I would have tears in my eyes and a smile on my lips, and would want to be a part of it for sure. I would have loved to do it, but unfortunately, I have a lot of commitments down. So, it is practically not possible,” she was quoted as saying.

Further when asked, was it difficult to see someone else play the title role, Avika mentioned that the feeling is the same how it was when she left the show and late actress Pratyusha Banerjee had entered as the new Anandi. “It was letting go of the character and someone else playing the part. I know how to detach myself from a character,” she added.

Meanwhile, talking about Balika Vadhu 2, Shreya Patel and Vansh Sayani have stepped into the shoes of Avika Gor and Avinash Mukherjee as Anandi and Jagdish for this new season. The shoot of Balika Vadhu 2 began in the month of June in Rajasthan. Riddhi Nayak Shukla, Ketki Dave, Seema Mishra, Anshul Trivedi, Supriya Shukla among others will also be part of the show.
