Launched on 2nd December, Beyhadh 2 has received great response from the audience. After the huge success of Beyhadh in 2017, the audience was expecting an even bigger and better season, and Beyhadh 2 seems to have emerged as a clear winner on that front. It has arrested audiences’ attention right from the episode one, and the numbers on TRP charts are a testimony to its initial success.

Beyhadh 2 stars Jennifer Winget, Ashish Chowdhry and Shivin Narang in lead roles. While Beyhadh revolved around love, obsession and infatuation, Beyhadh 2 has a completely contrast plot. Every actor, who is a part of the show, has been receiving overwhelming response for their performances, including the very talented Ashish Chowdhry who is seen as Mrityunjay Roy.

41-year-old Ashish is playing a father to grown-up kids on the show. Recently, when the actor was about if he was sceptical about doing the road, he said, “I was only doing comedy roles in films. I do enjoy comedy, but for how long will I play the guy who falls from the chair and makes people laugh? I am inspired by Kevin Spacey’s roles in international TV shows and felt that it was time to cross over and do something totally different.”

The actor went on to add, “If Sanjeev Kumar, who was as old as Amitabh Bachchan, can play a senior character in Sholay (1975), then actors today should not run away from playing older characters, just because they don’t want to age on screen. I could not be a part of Total Dhamaal (2019) because I was doing Dev on TV. I can’t forever be part of multi-starrer comedies, sometimes you need to do roles that have maturity and depth.”
