And now it is clear that, Shashank Vyas is playing the grown up Jagdish in the show. He too has made his entry in the show but in a subtle way.
The mela boy who teased Anandi and snatched flute from her is none other than her beend Jagdish, who came to the mela to see his beendani after a long gap of five years.
These love birds were separated by their elders on Anandi’s 13th Birthday and it was decided to send her to her Maayka (maternal house) till she turn 18. And now Anandi’s 18th birthday is approaching and so the couple is going to meet each other soon.
Before that in a mela, where Anandi was supposed to meet her childhood friend- Phooli, Jagya too went to see his chuhiya (nickname given by Jagdish to Anandi). Though Anandi was unaware of this truth and was bothered from his teasing. She will come to know about all this on her birthday.
Now talking back about Jagdish, Shashank Vyas, the actor playing Jagdish is from Ujjain. He has learned acting from Anupam Kher’s acting academy. Balika Vadhu is his debut serial, though he has done many print advertisements before.
After Jagdish’s entry in the show, the focus will be on Anandi- Jagdish’s love story and viewers will see some more chemistry between the protagonists.
