We have rallied really hard and made Balika Vadhu with a lot of love. Surekha Ji passed recently and it was shattering. She would be proud today and I am very happy and routing for the team. Those are big boots to fill in and I hope the show lives up to the billing. I request the audience to give it the same love they showed for the first season. It's a show that made a difference."
