Buoyed up by the huge success of the first season, the makers went ahead with a season 2, which brings back the much-loved jodi of Asha Negi and Sharman Joshi in lead roles. In the first season, the couple had parted ways due to their respective siblings. Vikram Singh Chauhan plays Asha Negi’s brother while Priya Banerjee essays the character of Sharman Joshi’s sister.

Baarish 2 is scheduled to start streaming from 6th May on ALTBalaji and ZEE5.
