'Balika Vadhu' has added another feather to its cap by becoming the longest running daily show on Indian TV with maximum number of episodes, breaking the record previously set by Ekta Kapoor's 'Kyunki... Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi'.
Cast and crew of 'Balika Vadhu' post the show's 11-year leap
As 'Balika Vadhu' moves forward by 11 years, the story will now highlight the life of Anandi's daughter Nimboli, who is bound by the chains that plagued Anandi's own childhood – child marriage.
The 11-year-old Baroda resident, Gracy Goswami, who has been roped in to portray the character of young Nimboli, says, "For more than a year now, I have watched 'Balika Vadhu' with my mother and wondered it is like for young girls who find themselves trapped in this situation. Nimboli is much like me – a mischievous young girl with a whole lot of questions in her mind. 'Balika Vadhu' is an educative show highlighting the wrongs that happen in our society, and I feel extremely lucky to be playing the daughter of an inspirational character like Anandi. I hope that fans of the show enjoy watching me on screen and support my character."
Nimboli's story on 'Balika Vadhu' will be supported by a volley of fresh characters including Nimboli's husband Kundan (Sparsh Srivastav), her confidante Mangala Devi (Rajeshwari Sachdev), father-in-law Akheraj Singh (Sunil Singh), mother-in-law Harkhi Devi (Rudrakshi Gupta) and Akheraj's older daughter Naini (Farah Hussain) and Shivam (Viren Varzani) as her distanced twin brother, among others.
