It is celebration times on the sets of Balika Vadhu as Sugna the sister-in-law of Anandi is all set to leave for her in-laws house. As we all know that Rajasthani traditional marriage has got so many rituals and Sphere Origins, the production house isn't ready to compromise on any aspect when it comes to creativity and looks of these traditions.

'Gauna' a tradition followed in Rajasthan where the girl is married at an early age but goes to stay with her husband later on is the special ceremony which is about to happen in near future in Balika Vadhu.

Talking about the sets and everything the creative head of the show speaks, "It was a grand affair. The whole set was decorated keeping the Rajasthani theme in mind. We kept a count of each and everything. I guess we did not leave even a single Rajasthani item on our count. The sets had everything ranging from Rajasthani handicrafts to pots to puppet shows and more. Looking at the set it gave a feeling that one is actually in Rajasthan".

Even Smita Bansal aka Sumitra agreed saying, "It certainly gave the sets a complete 'being in Rajasthan' feeling. The set had everything. Even elephants and horses made of clay were bought and painted too. Rajasthani pots and handicrafts were decorated beautifully. If one knows or has been to Jaipur's famous 'choki dhani' then he will understand what I am trying to say. Rajasthani culture is beautiful and it feels great to have such a get up on our sets too. I wished we could have shot there in Rajasthan itself".

Recalling her memorable experience that day Smita continues saying, "The whole idea of decorating the sets was brilliant. I must say that we really have some talented creative heads in this business. The sets also reminded me of my wedding. I witnessed the same experience, the only difference was that I was not getting married this time", jokes Smita heartedly.

Sphere Origins is indeed very particular about each and everything. They check in for the minutest details and work upon them. At the end of the day, getting an exact copy of such a set is not everyone's cup of tea.
