A powerful story that marked the dawn of a new age on television, a grave issue that left a long-lasting impact on the minds of the viewers, endearing characters that touched million hearts and are still revered iconic. 13 years ago, COLORS brought a new revolution on Indian Television with its path-breaking show, Balika Vadhu, that addressed the subject of child marriage in the simplest yet powerful manner. A topic that was still labelled as taboo in our country was brought to life through Anandi’s story that took the nation by storm.
While the show successfully changed many lives and mindsets, the evil custom of ‘Baal Vivaah’ is still prevalent and thriving in some parts of our country. With an aim to bring about a change and reignite conversations to eradicate child marriage custom from society, the channel is set to launch Balika Vadhu Season 2.
The show will capture the journey of a ‘nayi Anandi’ (played by Shreya Patel) as she takes definitive steps to fight and undo the injustice done to her.
