Young and talented actor Randeep Rai, who rose to fame as Sameer in Yeh Un Dinon Ki Baat Hai, is back with a bang. The actor, who was on a break for a while, will be seen playing the role of the grown-up Anand on the Colors show Balika Vadhu 2.

Talking exclusively to, Randeep shares his excitement and said, “I am thrilled and I still can’t believe that it is true. When things happen in a jiffy, the mind takes time to process the same. I believe the same thing is happening to me. I am happy to make a comeback with a show which is in itself a brand.”

He continued, “When I got the brief of the character Anand, I was told that he is a very sweet and caring person. He is not selfish, who will pick himself over others. Anand is also extremely responsible and tends to walk the path of righteousness and is forever indebted to his family for adopting him. These qualities made me take up this role. To get into the skin of my character, I lost weight and I have also changed my hairstyle. I am excited to play this role and hope that the audience enjoys watching me in this virtuous avatar.”

When asked about fans’ reaction to his comeback, he added, “I saw a few posts on Instagram wherein fans made my collages with Shivangi Joshi. The moment I saw it I got emotional. During Yeh Un Dinon, fans only wanted me and Ashi Singh to work together. However, this is not always possible. I was in doubt that my pairing would be accepted with Shivangi by fans. However, after seeing the love coming our way, I feel Anand and Anandi will be loved and accepted by fans. I am happy to have a loyal fan base who have always supported me in my journey.”

Commenting on his bond with Shivangi Joshi, he mentioned, “I have met Shivangi twice while shooting. However, I feel we will share a healthy bond in the future. The entire team is amazing so there would not be much pressure. We will work as a team and give our hundred percent to bring an amazing show for the audiences.”
