is an effort from the channel to extend the platform to real stories
of real people winning over the dark evils of society and encourage
viewers to participate in the move.
Since its launch in 2008, Anandi has become a household name and
looked up at as a catalyst of change. At an early age of 8, Anandis
innocent smile and simple questions took the whole nation by a storm
and soon her life was followed by many. The show became a national
discussion when it highlighted the repercussions of child
marriage besides touching upon several thought provoking and
sensitive issues such as adult literacy and women empowerment. In
the journey so far, we saw our beloved Anandi cross over some difficult
times Jagyas betrayal and breakdown of her marriage.
Now, 4 years later, Balika Vadhu has reached its zenith and its
time for Anandi to make a new beginning leaving behind the bitter
past and find her solace in her new beendh, Shiv. He comes from
an army background and is a man of authority. He is an energetic
yet impatient, good-looking and a self made man of today.
