What made you accept the second season of this show?
The reason why I am a part of Bekaaboo 2 is because of the script and the potential my character Kiyan has. When I read the script, I had to work on my body language as I play a grey character out to seek revenge.
Tell us something about Bekaaboo 2?
AltBalaji’s Bekaaboo 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off, the psycho-thriller follows young author Anaysha, who shot to fame overnight owing to a book she wrote not so ethically.
What is special about your character?
My character Kiyan is borderline psychotic and seeks revenge on quite a few people, especially Ananysha and Kashti. Kiyan doesn’t let things go and doesn’t forgive quickly. Season 2 will see a more evolved version of my character.
What are your expectations?
This series has been popular among the youth. Season 1 was received so well, so I’m pretty sure it will be better with Season 2. I am excited to find out how it looks on screen as well as the audience’s reaction.

What is that one message you would like to share with your fans?
That ambition shouldn’t cloud your judgement and that pulling people down in order to grow isn’t the solution. One should always work on one’s inner self.
