Back with a bang

Veteran actress Farida Jalal is returning to Balika Vadhu as Badi Jiji. She is excited about taking the story forward in a major way. 

“The most vital thing is that Jiji will be instrumental in taking the storyline forward and brings in a drastic change,” Farida said in a press statement.

Her re-entry will trigger more friction in the Anandi-Jagya-Gauri relationship on the show. “Last time around, I brought about a change in Dadisa’s heart. This time, let’s see whose hearts melt,” she added.

Farida plays the role of Dadisa’s elder sister in the Colors’ show. A well-known face on the silver screen, Farida has given impressive performances in films like Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham.
