Balika Vadhu is all set to take a time leap of 20 years soon and Anandi’s daughter Nandini aka Nimboli will be shown as a doctor in Jaipur in her late twenties, post leap. Last seen in Khatron Ke Khiladi 7, Mahhi Vij will play the role of grown-up Nimboli. The actress returns to fiction TV shows after a gap of three years.
“I’m returning after a break of three years. I am very excited since this is a very big show and it is a big thing for me to be part of Balika Vadhu,” Mahhi Vij told Saas Bahu Aur Betiyaan.
The innocent and talented Nimboli will also be falling in love soon. Her love interest will be played by none other than the dashing actor Ruslaan Mumtaz who has worked in Bollywood movies like MP3 and Dangerous Ishq, as well as TV shows like Kehta Hai Dil Jee Le Zara. In Balika Vadhu, he’ll be playing a snooty NRI.
“I was busy with my film commitments after my last show wrapped up in 2014. I was offered this role, and since I am free now, I took it up. Besides, nothing could have been bigger than this show. I play a snooty NRI, who gradually begins to appreciate his country. The show is a brand already, so the onus to take it to greater heights is even more on the new cast,” Ruslaan told TOI.
According to reports, another senior doctor will fall for the charms of Nimboli. The role will be portrayed by Chotti Bahu actor Avinash Sachdev.
The all-new Balika Vadhu episodes, post leap will be shown from April 25.
