Television serial Balika Vadhu has made its way to the Limca Book of Records as the longest running daily fiction soap in Hindi, with a run of over 2000 episodes.
Balika Vadhu delved into the social issue of child marriages. It traced the life of a young bride Anandi, whose life goes through ups and downs after she is married at a young age to Jagdish. Her trials and tribulations and her fight against the social system forms the crux of the story, which has now moved on to narrating the journey of her daughter Nandini.
“The show’s meaningful content, endearing story-line and inspirational characters have created a strong impact on the mind of the viewers. As the show enters the Limca Book of Records and achieves this brand new milestone, we would like to graciously thank our viewers for their everlasting support in making Balika Vadhu an industry-wide benchmark,” Manisha Sharma, programming head of channel Colors, said in a statement.
As far as the current narrative is concerned, Balika Vadhu will now feature a love triangle between Nandini (Mahhi Vij), Amit (Avinash Sachdev) and Krish (Ruslaan Mumtaz).
“We are very honoured and delighted that Balika Vadhu has created a record for being the Longest Running Daily Soap and has featured in the Limca Book of Records,” said Sunjoy Waddhwa, Chief Managing Director, Sphere Origins.
Balika Vadhu cast Avika Gor as young Anandi and Avinash Mukherjee as young Jagdish.
