Balika Vadhu will now roll the story in flashback, to the time when Dadisa is young. Rather than working on hiding Surekha Sikhri"s wrinkles, the serial has roped in a new actor who is a look-alike of dadisa's younger days. Heeba Shah will now be essaying young Dadisa in Balika Vadhu. Surekha Sikhri is her maternal aunt and Heeba, has inherited the acting genes from the genius Naseeruddin Shah.
Because of her striking resemblance with her aunt, she got the significant cameo in the show. According to our source, Surekha was unaware of the fact that her niece is playing her younger version. She was spotted by the creative team while she was working in a short film by RS Vikal. She has always been associated to theaters and has done short films before this. Track of Retro-Dadisa promises some more eyeballs for the serial!
