Remember the timid, frightened, and cute little Anandi from the 2008 show, Balika Vadhu? She grew up to be a beautiful and gorgeous woman, who predominantly works in Tollywood and Hindi television shows. Post Balika Vadhu, Avika Gor made her way into the hearts of her audience again as Roli Siddhant Bharadwaj in Sasural Simar Ka. When Avika had stepped into the television industry, she became a household name and even today, more than a decade later, she continues to be everyone’s favourite. Avika has transformed from an adorable child artist to a gorgeous diva. It was a few days ago when Avika had stunned everyone with her fat-to-fab journey.

Inspiring everyone with her jaw-dropping transformation and recalling how once she had broken down in front of the mirror, Avika Gor had written a long note on being comfortable in her own skin. Avika had written, “I still remember one night last year, when I looked at myself in the mirror & I broke down. I didn't like what I saw. Big arms, legs, a well earned belly. I had let go too much. If it were due to an illness(Thyroid,PCOD, etc), it would be okay because that would be out of my control. But, it happened because I ate anything & everything, and I didn't workout at all. Our bodies deserve to be treated well, but I didn't respect it.” She had continued, “Today, I am comfortable in my own skin. Today, I'm peaceful. Let's make self-love cool!”
Post inspiring us with her fitness transformation, Avika Gor shared pictures of her first photo-session post her incredible weight loss journey and shelled out major fashion goals in a white shirt dress paired with a quirky denim thigh-high boot. Avika captioned her post as “The very first shoot after my fitness journey was with some of the most talented people in the industry. @eshaangirri @harmann_kaur_2.0 @sandysartistry you guys are awesome! I was excited and nervous so I looked at myself in the mirror only after the styling & Hair-makeup was done for look 1 . The first statement that came out of my mouth was, "Dude, I love what you've done to my hair." and Sandy was kind enough to share that, "It's your natural hair. We didn't need to do much.” It made me realise how we all take so many of our qualities/characteristics for granted. I was so busy worrying about what I didn't like in myself, that I didn't really acknowledge the good things(not just physical appearance, overall). Ever since, I try my best to think of the positives in me & it helps me feel confident & peaceful.” (Also Read: Kapil Sharma's Baby Girl, Anayra Sharma Makes Adorable Appearance On His Interview With Bharti Singh)
On Avika Gor’s post, her proud beau, Milind Chandwani commented, “I'm glad that you acknowledge your qualities now. I'm proud of you, beautiful!” For the unversed, Avika had introduced her beau and made their relationship official on social media a few days ago by posting a picture from their Goa vacation. Avika had captioned her post as “La vie en rose. My prayers have been answered. I have found the love of my life! (Shiroo ke alava) This kind human is mine. And I’m his.. forever.. We all deserve a partner that understands us, believes in us, inspires us, helps us grow & truly cares for us. But, most of us feel that it's impossible to find such a partner. So, it feels like a dream, but it’s real! So so so real! I pray for all of you.”
Clarifying that marriage is not on the cards anytime soon and thanking her beau, Milind Chandwani for completing her, Avika Gor had continued, “I want u all to feel what I’m feeling today.. Utmost joy.. Abundance of love.. My heart is so full and the feeling is precious. I thank God for giving me this experience that’s going to be most important chapter of my life... Haha... Nahi nahi, not getting married or anything so soon... Lekin “log kya kahenge” waale thoughts toh ab jaa chuke hai.. isiliye is pyaar ke baare mein khule aam batana chahti thi.. I feel so blessed that I feel this emotion right now for someone who entered my life with the intention of just making me smile.. Today I can proudly say that this idiot is making my heart smile.. Ufff ... challo itne paise mein itna hi milega isse zayada tareef karungi toh Mr. Chandwani chand tak udega.. Well, I’m aware yeh kaafi ganda joke tha, but pura credit goes to his sense of humour! Like they say “sangat ka asar” Challo jao sab khush raho ab. I love you from the bottom of my heart. Thanks for completing me. @milindchandwani.” (Also Read: Sara Ali Khan Makes Badi Amman, Sharmila Tagore's 76th Birthday Special, Shares Celebration Pictures)
