Didn’t have a clue that I was being auditioned for Anandi’s role: Toral

I didn't have a clue that I was being auditioned for the role of Anandi, " says actress Toral Rasputra on becoming the new Balika Vadhu

Are you nervous about playing Anandi, a character already made popular by Pratyusha Banerjee?
Yes, but I believe in myself. My co-actors share tips with me. The atmosphere on the sets is very positive.

How did your family react?
They are elated, especially my in-laws. My mother, an avid follower of the show, is also thrilled. When the producers asked me if I was willing to replace Pratyusha to play the new Anandi, I didn't give it a second thought.

What do you think about Pratyusha?
She is a fine actress and people have liked her. I hope to live up to the audience's expectations and carry her legacy forward.

How did you react when you were offered this role?
I didn't have a clue that I was being auditioned for Anandi's role. The process took almost 20 days and I was under the impression that it was for a new project. I was excited when they told me that I had been finalised to play Anandi. It's a turning point in my career.

What worked in your favour?
I can carry off the Indian look perfectly. I've donned the Rajasthani look in my previous show and the makers probably got a positive feedback from there.

Ever fear that the viewers might take time to adjust to a new face and affect TRPs?
The viewers will take some time, as they have loved Pratyusha as Anandi. But I am certain that they will accept me over time.
