Mumbai: Television’s most popular series 'Balika Vadhu' is all set to break a stigma attached to widows by showing Surekha Sikhri aka ‘Dadisa’ participating in the wedding celebrations of Anandi.

Anandi will tie the knot with Shiv after she divorced her husband Jagdish and the auspicious ceremony will see ‘Dadisa’ and Shiv's choti maa, who are widows, putting mehandi on the bride and groom's hand.

“I will be seen applying Mehendi on my hands and also applying it on Anandi's hands thereby setting an example. With this, we are establishing the fact that a widow can be a part of something as auspicious as a bride's Mehendi ceremony and there is no harm in it. I have been part of ‘Balika Vadhu’ for so long and these customs will certainly be an eye opener," said Surekha, who plays ‘Dadisa’ in the show.
