C S Mahale, a working lady, a homemaker and a mother of two, was curious about what would happen after Anandi dies on the show. “What would we be watching then? She’s the lifeblood of the serial and it’s quite a shocker to read in the newspapers that she plans to leave the show,” she adds.

Avika Gor, the 12-year-old who plays the popular child bride Anandi, announced two weeks ago that she would be taking a break from the show for her school examinations. “Like my work, I also take my studies very seriously.

Sunjoy Wadhwa, the producer of the show from Sphere Origins, didn’t wish to comment on the current track of the show either. The spokesperson from


too, refused to comment.

However, sources say that the plan is to slip Anandi into a coma and keep the families in a state of shock for the next two weeks. Apparently, Dadisa (Surekha Sikri) would also hold a
