'Balika Vadhu 2' promo announces show will release next month
Good news for Balika Vadhu fans! Makers have released a new promo, in which you get to see the new Anandi, Shreya Patel, along with other characters. Colors TV unveiled the teaser and premiere date today on its social media handle. Releasing from August 9, the show deals with the social evils of child marriage, which is still practiced in some parts of India.
Marriage is fixed as soon as the girl is born
In the promo, a woman is about to give birth, as a man outside the room, apparently her brother-in-law, says that this time it should be a girl. A lady then brings the newborn outside, saying, a daughter is born, while that man holds her and says, "Bahu paida hui hai" (daughter-in-law is born). He names the child Anandi and everyone is seen celebrating.
Voiceover in the background explains the scene perfectly
As the newborn is named, the next scene shows Patel as Anandi twirling with a dupatta and smiling adorably. In the background, a voiceover explains the promo perfectly. It says, "Little Anandi had to suffer the curse of social evil like child marriage in her mother's womb. And to finish such practices, the new Balika Vadhu has arrived." It will premiere at 8 pm.

The promo released earlier had shown a toddler Anandi
Earlier last month, makers had released another promo, where a toddler is seen portraying Anandi. In it, her mother is shown talking about her child's beauty and then, she says that now she has to find a "nanha sa rajkumar" (young prince) for her. The same voiceover can be heard in the background, while the next scene shows the child in a wedding attire.
'Baal Veer' fame Vansh Sayani is the new Jagya
Till now, the promos have shown only Anandi, but not the new Jagya. This time, Jagdish will be played by Baal Veer-fame Vansh Sayani. Other actors include Riddhi Nayak Shukla, Ketki Dave, Seema Mishra, Anshul Trivedi and Supriya Shukla. The filming of Balika Vadhu 2 began last month in Rajasthan. To recall, Avinash Mukherjee and Avika Gor were the lead actors in the original.
