Meet new Anandi on Thursday
Avika Gor was one of the much loved youngest ‘bahu’ of Indian television. Now she will be replaced by a grown up actress on the show ‘Balika Vadhu’ and the new face will be unravelled Thursday.
The 11-year-old Avika, who has been essaying the character since the past two years on ‘Balika Vadhu’, is being replaced by an older girl due to a generation leap on the show that comes on Colors channel.
The channel had launched a poll whereby the audience got the chance to choose their favourite candidate for Anandi’s role through SMS. Three girls – Lucknow-based Nivedita Tiwari, Jamshedpur-based Pratyusha Banerjee and Ketaki Chitale from Mumbai – had been shortlisted for the poll.
Now the viewers will finally know who they have voted for the role. It will be a one-hour special episode and will take viewers through the new phase of the show.
