Talking about the new season, a source shared with indianexpress.com, “Beyhadh is all about obsession and love, and the story of the new installment will also revolve around the same. The hunt for the male lead is still on and the makers have approached big names to cast opposite Jennifer. The makers are also keen to name Jennifer’s character Maya once again but things are still in the planning stage. Her character, like the previous season, will have negative shades.”
As per sources, Bengali superstar Prosenjit Chatterjee has also been approached to play a pivotal role in Beyhadh 2. Though things are yet to get confirmed, the role would be of a powerful negative character, who will dominate over the show.
Apart from Jennifer Winget, Beyhadh also starred Kushal Tandon and Aneri Vajani. Launched on Sony TV in 2016, the show projected Jennifer in a dark shade for the first time. The actor, who is known to play goody characters, surprised all with her portrayal as an obsessive lover. She won laurels and appreciation from critics and the masses alike. After a successful run, the show wrapped up on October 2017. While the first season was bankrolled by Cinevistaas, Beyhadh 2 will be helmed by Prateek Sharma under his production company LSD Films.
Beyhadh 2 will go on floors mostly by the end of next month and launch in October.
