As Season 2 of the award-winning web series “Maharani 2” awaits its release, actresses Neha Chauhan and Anuja Sathe, who have joined the cast led by Sohum Shah and Huma Qureishi, spoke about their roles in the political drama. Neha will be seen playing Kalpana Kaul, a suave and ambitious woman running her own political consultancy firm called I-ACT (a nod obviously to political strategist Prashant Kishor).
Talking about her role, Neha said: “I have been a big fan of the show since the first season, so it feels great to join such a stellar cast and work with the wonderful Subhash Kapoor (creator of the show) Sir. My character will take things up a notch and catalyse plot twists that will unfold this season. I have never done anything like this before and am excited to see the audience’s reaction.”
Stepping into the shoes of a political candidate, Anuja Sathe portrays Kirti Singh, who becomes the confidante of Bheema Bharti, played by Sohum Shah.
On her role, she said: “I have always been very lucky when it comes to roles. Keeping the trend alive, the audience will see me in a new avatar in this show. Kirti is totally opposite to how I am in real life, so it was an exciting and fulfilling experience for me as an actor.
“I had to be convincing while portraying the various shades of my character. The entire cast and crew have been very supportive, and I had a great time working with all of them.”
“Maharani 2” is directed by Ravindra Gautam, with Subhash Kapoor and Nandan Singh serving as showrunners and writers of the show.
Headlined by Huma Qureshi, the show also features Sohum Shah, Amit Sial, Vineet Kumar, Inaamulhaq, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Kani Kasturi, Pramod Pathak and Vineet Kumar in prominent roles.
The show will be released on SonyLIV.
