In Balika Vadhu, the twist is in the form of grown up Anandi and Jagdish. That is the youngest bahu of Indian television aka Avika Gor and her beend- Avinash Mukherjee will not be a part of the show after this leap.
It is said that Pratyusha Banerjee will play the new Anandi after this leap. Pratyusha is from Jamshedpur and is a new face on television. She is selected through an audience poll launched by the channel; where she was nominated along with two other candidates- Lucknow-based Nivedita Tiwari and Ketaki Chitale from Mumbai.
In this poll Pratyusha got the highest votes, so is selected to play the grown up Anandi in the show. It is rumored that the other two girls will too be a part of the show as Anandi's friend-
Phooli and Jagdish's 2nd wife- Gudiya.
This leap has brought both happiness and grief to the fans of the serial. They are happy as now after this leap the focus will be on the love story of Anandi and Jagdish and viewers will see some more chemistry between their favorite characters. And the fans are sad too as Avika and Avinash will not be a part of the show. So it is a big blow to their fans.
There is no doubt that Avika Gor has done full justice to the role as young Anandi. It is her brilliant acting on the show which has brought her many awards. So it will be a big test for Pratyusha to win the viewers affection like Avika.
After Pratyusha’s entry, the new Jagdish will be entered around next week. It is buzzed that actor Shashank Vyas will play the grown up Jagdish.
