Balika Vadhu Season 2 is set to premier on COLORS this week and the cast of the first season is feeling nostalgic and excited. Over a decade ago, Balika Vadhu made waves, revolutionized the television industry, and became the most popular show of its time by addressing the issue of child marriages in the country. Loved by viewers across demographics, the cast of the show became a household name. Reminiscing the good days, Avika Gor, Shashank Vyas, and Siddharth Shukla share their experiences and congratulate the new team of Balika Vadhu Season 2.
Sharing his experience, Sidharth Shukla (who played Shiv in season 1) said "Balika Vadhu played an important part in my life and an extremely critical role in my career. I got a chance to work and learn with the best from the television industry and it surely holds a very special part in my heart. With Balika Vadhu we created history, and I am excited to hear the news of the new season. The show’s concept helped create a lot of awareness in the past, but Baal Vivaah is a social evil that unfortunately still exists, and we need to continue fighting this battle. I wish love and luck to the entire cast Balika Vadhu season 2 as they embark on a powerful new journey.”ALSO READ: "Playing Meghna pushed my boundaries" - Avika Gor on '1920: Horrors of the Heart' begins streaming
