The celebration on the sets of COLORS' Balika Vadhu is on with the gauna of Sughna (Anandi's sister-in-law) to take place. The sequence is beautifully shot in Jaipur at a place called Chowki Dhani with lavish sets and traditional rituals of Rajasthan.

Smita Bansal goes down memory lane...
'Gauna' a tradition followed in Rajasthan where the girl is married at an early age but goes to stay with her husband later on is the special ceremony which is now the focus in Balika Vadhu.

For Smita Bansal aka Sumitra, the grandeur reminded her of her wedding.  "The festivities reminded me of my wedding as it took place in Chowki Dhani. It was almost the same environment during Sughna's wedding and gauna".

Smita adds on. "The set had literally everything. The elephants and horses made of clay were brought and painted too. Rajasthani pots and handicrafts were decorated beautifully. Rajasthani culture is beautiful and it feels great to have such a get-up on our sets too".

Going down the memory lane, the actress quips, "Even during my wedding, there were puppet shows at one corner, typical Rajasthani dance on the other side when our phere was taking place. This time again, it was lively and colorful and Sughna was looking gorgeous and adorable. My heart went out for her".

"Sughna's wedding can be said as a lavish wedding ever done on small screen. Our family in the show is supposed to be rich, and we had to show the richness in the occasion too", she concludes.

Sphere Origins did not leave a stone unturned in bringing out the best for this occasion..

Now let's see what the viewers have to say about the grand celebrations!!
