~ Love and success chart Nandini’s future… starting 25th April 2016, every Monday to Friday at 8:00 PM on COLORS ~
Mumbai, April 22nd, 2016: If you yearn for something, your fates hold the power to realign destiny and bring you your heart’s desire. And it’s this longing to fulfill her mother, Anandi’s last wish which gives her daughter, Nandini the wings to achieve her dreams and dictate her own future. COLORS’ longest running fiction drama, Balika Vadhu will narrate a story of love and aspirations as they erase the memories of pain and longing of her childhood. As an established doctor, Nandini finds a purpose which helps her to overcome the stigma of her past and chart the way for a journey that promises happiness beyond comprehension. Nandini’s journey of love and determination to move on will commence as a brand new chapter – Balika Vadhu…Lamhe Pyaar Ke, starting 25th April 2016, every Monday to Friday at 8:00 PM on COLORS.
Commenting on the all-new chapter to its flagship show, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head – COLORS, says, “Over the past 8 years, Balika Vadhu has broken norms with pathbreaking content that has appealed to the sensibilities of viewers across the world. While Anandi’s remarkable journey ends here, it’s a start of something exciting for Nandini wherein she will experience a myriad of emotions including love and happiness. With the crux of the show remaining alive, the story will now change gears to showcase Nandini’s life as a doctor striving for optimism. Through an all-new backdrop and a fresh cast, we are certain that this new phase will resonate strongly with our viewers.”
On Balika Vadhu, audiences have witnessed Nandini’s innocence, struggles and fighting spirit as she faced injustice head-on as a 13-year-old Nimboli, who was kidnapped as an infant and trapped in the web of child marriage. 15 years onwards, as a life free from her past beckons, Nandini will experience a new zephyr of aspirations, love and relationships whose gentle bloom will shape her future. Free from the binding customs, she will come across Dr. Amit (Avinash Sachdev) who will guide her through her expedition to become a successful doctor striving for the betterment of humanity. Adding a touch of happiness to her life will be Krish (Ruslaan Mumtaz), a young medical intern visiting from the US who will take it upon himself to help Nandini encounter love. Urging her to laugh and enjoy herself to the fullest, Krish creates a zest for life in Nandini’s heart. Both Dr. Amit and Krish will become an intrinsic part of Nandini’s life as Dr. Amit becomes her support system, and Krish arms her with a gamut of emotions that bring cheer to her life.
Commenting on the leap, Mr. Sunjoy Waddhwa, CMD – Sphereorigins, said “We are honoured that ‘Balika Vadhu’ has reached a milestone and set a benchmark for itself. With such immense popularity for the show, the viewership has grown. Hence, now is the right time for the show to cross the bridge by taking a leap. It is very essential for any show to engage the audience without losing the essence of the storyline”.
Speaking about portraying Nandini on-screen, Mahhi Vij said, “Balika Vadhu is a lot more than a television show; it’s a way of life for viewers that have followed its story closely. It has touched lives in many ways and becoming a part of the show as Anandi’s daughter, Nandini, is going to be a mammoth task. Nandini’s ideology of love is self-destructive and it’s with Krish and Dr. Amit’s help that she finds love, happiness and her true purpose in life. Now, as I embark on this new journey, I hope that the viewers’ unwavering love will continue to support Balika Vadhu’s legacy.”
Commenting on his role as Dr. Amit, Avinash Sachdev said, “Being associated with a much-appreciated show like Balika Vadhu puts a lot of responsibility on me, as an actor. Dr. Amit is Nandini’s rock. He motivates her, helps her to achieve her dreams and in the process ends up developing feelings for her. But, aspects from his past will deeply impact his personality, and will impact the future he envisions for himself as well”. Playing the role of Krish, Ruslaan Mumtaz said, “Born to a super-rich family living in the US, Krish will be a medical intern, whose enthusiasm towards life will attract Nandini to him. He brings laughter and happiness to her life, and teaches her to soar in the name of love. Krish helps Nandini find her true identity and individuality in a fun and jubilant way”.
Nandini’s journey on Balika Vadhu… Lamhe Pyaar Ke turns a new leaf as she benignly takes an oath at Jaipur’s biggest hospital – Suryodaya Hospital, thereby cementing her career and future under the guidance of Dr. Amit, a senior doctor. On the other hand, Krish enters Nandini’s life bringing with him a wave of emotions and happiness. In the midst of these emotions, Nandini will also be looking for her lost brother Shivam (Dishank Arora), and forming a heartening bond with her foster sister Sudha (Yukti Kapoor).
The pain of her past catching up with her future, Nandini recounts the despair of her childhood and her promise to her mother to take charge of her life going forward. As a new lease in Nandini’s life takes centrestage, a great career as a doctor and the gentle nudge of love will come knocking at her door.
Balika Vadhu…Lamhe Pyaar Ke will forge a stronger bond with love and relationships, starting 25th April 2016
