Popular TV show Balika Vadhu, starring Toral Rasputra in the lead, has become the first drama series to cross the 2000 episode landmark.
The Colors' show features various social issues including child marriage, domestic abuse and marital rape. It showcased the realities of rural India and took a stand towards women empowerment.
Since its launch in 2008, "Balika Vadhu" struck a chord with audience for its strong story-line and powerful performances. "Over the years 'Balika Vadhu' became a key identifier for our offerings and its success is synonymous with our success as an entertainment channel.
This journey has been incredible and we would like to thank our viewers for their unending love and support to make this milestone a reality," said Raj Nayak, CEO, Colors.
Commenting on the mother-daughter reunion, Anandi aka Toral said, "They say that the strongest bond in the world is that which is shared by a mother and her daughter. Over the past two years, I have had the good fortune to experience a multitude of emotions while living the life of Anandi on Balika Vadhu."
To kick off the 2000 episode celebrations, the channel has organised an all-India photography initiative on social media, and invited viewers to share some of their most precious moments commemorating the mother-child relationship.
