It seems Toral Rasputra, who replaced Pratyusha Banerjee as Anandi in "Balika Vadhu" after the latter quit the popular show, will take some time to carve a niche for herself as Anandi as audiences are taking their own sweet time to accept her.

"I loved the earlier Anandi (Pratyusha Banerjee) most because she had moulded herself according to the character. She has left her imprints on our mind and heart. That's why we are facing a bit of a difficulty in accepting the new Anandi. This Anandi (Toral Rasputra) is also doing good but we all loved the earlier Anandi very much," one viewer said.

Another one felt that Toral lacks that touch.

"I liked the earlier Anandi very much. New Anandi does not have that factor that Pratyusha had," she said.

"Balika Vadhu" is the most watched show on TV and has been running for more than four years.

Pratyusha stepped into the shoes of child prodigy Avika Gor as a grown up Anandi in 2010, when the show took a five-year leap. She was chosen through a nationwide poll.

Purnendu Shekhar, writer of the show, feels that viewers need time to adapt to the change and it also happened when Pratyusha replaced Avika.

"Changing the lead character Anandi in 'Balika Vadhu' was a risk that the channel and the makers took, but that is because there was no other option. After the show took time leap and Avika was replaced by Pratyusha, the TRP's dipped but after a while it got better." Shekhar told IANS.

"The story on the show is showcasing the normal life that is why TRP's are low. The high points have just got over," he added.

Current tracks show Anandi's life with Shiv.

Some feel that Toral is not bad, but they have formed a habit of watching Pratyusha.

"The first one was very good. She (Toral Rasputra) is also good but it is just that we tend to like the one most whom we have been watching for a long time," a viewer said.

    no one ever can take place of pratyusha's place in our heart as anandi... she will always be our sweet, adorable anandi..i guess you bv people are being just arrogant that if people had easily accepted pratyusha as anandi after avika, then same will happen with toral...but i m sorry ,.. you cant be more wrong because it is totally two different situations..during avika-pratyusha scenario, show took a generation leap and obviously you cant accept a kid to play a grown up girl , hence pratyusha was brought up .. and with pratyusha's powerful acting , her day by day increasing grasp to anandi's character immediately connected us to avika's anandi... but that's not gonna happen with toral coz first of all, she didnt come after any leap ,it was just sudden change of face and secondly, she no where stands near avika and pratyusha as far as talent is concerned...she is so expressionless and rough.. she has no chemistry with sid or with any member of the cast whatsoever...both avika and pratyusha had charm which attracts you immediately.. their acting could easily brought tears to your eyes.. their expressions were always been realistic.. but whenever toral smiles, cries it all seems so fake as if she is being just asked or forced to do so.. even because of her all other cast also feels disconnected... so i just wanna say that only avika and pratyusha will always be remembered as Anandi...forever and ever. No one can take her place.

    New Anandi has no chemistry with both Shiv and Jagya in the show. When the female lead has no chemistry with either of the male leads , it spells disaster for the show , whether the show is a romantic show or one with a social message.

    One must be forced to assume Total as Anandi. She seems to be the odd one out there on the screen, let it be with singhs, Jagya, Shekhars/Shiv. For me Anandi should look special not odd.
