Oh, yes! You read that right!
Such is the power of Anandi that Balika Vadhu recently won a place in Limca Book of Records as the longest running daily fiction soap in Hindi. With over 2190 episodes, it has overtaken Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi‘s record of a mere 1833 episodes.
Focusing on child marriage, the show, produced by Sphere Origins was launched in 2008 on Colors channel and has been an audience favorite ever since. Sharing his happiness about winning this national record, the programming head of the channel, Manish Sharma, said:
The show’s meaningful content, endearing story-line and inspirational characters have created a strong impact on the mind of the viewers. As the show enters the Limca Book of Records and achieves this brand new milestone, we would like to graciously thank our viewers for their everlasting support in making Balika Vadhu an industry-wide benchmark.
Congratulations, team! That’s a job well done :)
