Balika Vadhu 2 hit the small screen last year and everyone had high expectations from the show. Unfortunately, the daily soap failed to impress the fans and critics alike. In a few months, the show was taken off air. While the OG version of the show was quite popular and had a long run, Balika Vadhu 2 appeared overly dramatic.
The reboot starred Shivangi Joshi as Anandi in the lead role but even her effortless performance couldn’t lift Balika Vadhu 2’s low TRP. In a recent interview, the actress opened up about the show’s failure and said, “I did feel bad but there was no disappointment. When you take up something, you do want it to become super successful. However, sometimes things don’t work as per our plans. Also, I truly believe every show has its own journey. Balika Vadhu is a household name and I am so happy and proud I could associate with it. The message that the show wanted to give was lapped by viewers, and I think it manage to fulfil its intention.”
We agree with Shivangi completely! All an actor can do is give their best to a project but if it doesn’t work out, it is better to cut your losses and move on. That’s exactly what the 24-year-old-actress is doing.
After working on different daily soaps, Shivangi is now making her way to an action based reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi 12. Speaking about the same, the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai actress said, “I have a lot of phobias, and that’s going to be my weakness. However, I am stepping into this show with the intention to overcome all my fears. I am not someone who gives up easily. While I am competitive, I take failure and defeat quite well. That I think will be my strength.”
NGL fam, we are really excited to see Shivangi back on our screens. Here’s wishing her all the luck for her next big adventure!
