‘Balika Vadhu’ celebrates its 1000th episode

Mumbai, May 15 Anjum Farooqi, who plays the role of Gehna on Colors’ “Balika Vadhu”, said she feels great to be associated with such a show, as it celebrated its 1,000th episode Monday.

“I feel great to be associated with ‘Balika Vadhu’. It is such a privilege to be associated with a cult show like this. I could never imagine that I would be part of such a show,” she said.

The entire cast of “Balika Vadhu” with the exception of Surekha Sikri, who plays the role of Dadisa in the show, was present at the event where Laxmi Sargara, a victim of child marriage, was also felicitated.

Married when she was a year old, Sargara has now legally annulled her marriage.

Reminiscing about her days on the sets of “Balika Vadhu”, Anjum told IANS about the fights which she and her co star, Shashank Vyas, have all the time.

“Shashank and I still fight on the sets many times. While pretending to fight during our scenes, we sometimes start fighting in reality as well. Our tempers are so high at that time, that we fight even if the other person makes a silly mistake,” she said.

“Balika Vadhu” has been on air since the past four years. The star cast includes Pratusha Banerjee, Neha Marda, Vyas, Sikri, Smita Bansal and Anup Soni.

Anjum plays the role of Gehna, who is Jagdish’s wife on the show. Her character was introduced much later into the show.

“I am really glad that the audience has accepted my character. I was very reluctant to take on this role. The audience knew and loved Anandi and Jagdish and this was a challenge for me,” she said.
