Recently Balika Vadhu celebrated its 1000th episode and with this episode we had the much awaited entry of the new male lead in the show- Siddharth Shukla. He entered in the show as the new IAS officer of Jetsar. His screen name is Shivraj Shekhar.
When Jagdish cheated on Anandi with Gauri and then married the latter, all the viewers of the show wanted Anandi to start her life afresh and have a better person in her life. And it seems that with the entry of Shivraj Shekhar all their prayers were answered.
Siddharth Shukla is a very handsome actor. He is a former Gladrags Mega Model winner. He has done many commercial advertisements and debuted with Hindi film I am in love, though it was a flop. Then he entered the small screen with Sony’s show- Babul Ka Aangann Chootey Na, which was not a big hit and had very limited viewers. But still he was noticed in that show. Then he did Jaane Pehchane Se Yeh Ajnabbi on Star One and Love U Zindagi on Star Plus.
In Balika Vadhu, Sidharth is playing the IAS Officer who has come as the new officer in charge for the newly made district Jetsar. He seems to be a very dedicated, honest and hard working person. Like Anandi he is also against the old customs and wants to work towards the growth and development; So all the fans of balika vadhu who were disheartened by the ill behavior of Jagdish towards Anandi and their broken relationship are now very happy to see such an awesome person in Anandi’s life.
Though Sidarth Shukla doesn’t have any big hit in his kitty as all his previous projects were either flop or average, but still he has good potential and is very handsome too. So he is a good choice for the role of Shivraj Shekhar and this role is suiting him very much. His chemistry with Anandi aka Pratyusha Bannerjee is also great so soon we will have lots of fans for Shiv- Anandi pair and Shivraj’s character will be very popular.
