Randeep Rai, Shivangi Joshi, and Samridh Bawa joined the programme as grown-ups Anand, Anandi, and Jigar when Balika Vadhu 2 aired in December.

Jannat is quite famous online. As per the reports she was approached to play Anandi in Balika Vadhu 2. Jannat is also a well-known actress in the television world. According to reports, Jannat turned down Anandi’s part owing to a fee dispute.
Avika Gor is alleged to have been approached by the producers to play Anandi as well. However, the actress rejected, stating that she wished to pursue a new path in her career.
Helly Shah has been in shows such as Swaragini, Devanshi, and Ishq Mein Marjawa 3, to mention a few. According to reports, Helly was also asked to portray Anandi. However, the actor rejected since she was unable to connect with Anandi’s character.
Tujhse Hai Raabta star Reem Sameer Reem was also asked to play Anandi in the sequel drama Balika Vadhu. However, the actor was preoccupied with her other professional obligations.
According to speculations, Yeh Rishtey Hai Pyaar Ke and Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piya actress Rhea Sharma was also approached by the producers. However, Shivangi Joshi was finally cast in the role.
