Story: The new version will be 'set in current times'

The release date hasn't been decided yet, but you might get the show in August.
Cast: Actresses for Anandi, Jagya's mothers have also been decided
This season might see Riddhi Nayak Shukla as Anandi's mother, Bollywood Hungama reported. It was originally played by Bhairavi Raichura. And, Jagya's mother, Sumitra, will be portrayed by Shiju Kataria, according to Telly Chakkar, a role that was essayed by Smita Bansal. The other actors are Jyoti Tiwari, Sunny Pancholi, Ketki Dave, Seema Mishra, Mehul Buch, Supriya Shukla and Rashmi Gupta, among others.
Information: No old 'Balika Vadhu' actors in reboot getting questioned
Some previous reports suggested that this new season will not see anyone from the old star cast. But an actor close to the development said that it might not be a clever move, as some characters from the old cast need to be there to set the next season in motion. Well, only time will tell if this experiment would click.
Observation: The original show covered a lot of social aspects
To note, the original, helmed by Sphereorigins, was the first serial on Indian television that was vocal about child marriages, and the issues they face when they grow up. In it, the adults, Shashank Vyas (Jagya) and late Pratyusha Banerjee, then Toral Rasputra (both portrayed Anandi), fall for separate individuals, raising several moral questions. Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla played Anandi's second husband.
