Though Jennifer Winget has been a part of the industry for a while now, the actress garnered newfound stardom by becoming a household name with her portrayal of the gritty ‘Maya’ in Sony TV’s romantic thriller, Beyhadh.
While fans may have heaved love and appreciated Jennifer for her performance, the actress did not manage to bag any awards of her performance. And now, as the Dil Mil Gaye actress gears up for the second season of the show, titled as Beyhadh 2, she opens up about why she chooses to play the part yet again despite not being lauded by trophies.
Answering about the same to Pinkvilla, Jennifer has been quoted saying that she feels very satisfied playing the character of Maya. She further said, “Not just because the character is appreciated. When I first heard the narration of the show, I had said that I have to do this. Whether it works or not, I have to do it because it is very rare that women get opportunities to play a complex character. No awards or rewards, it is just that this beautiful character I have got to play and I will play it again and again.”
Meanwhile, spilling the beans about what fans should expect out of Beyhadh 2, Jennifer revealed, “We have established the character pretty well now and we did not want it to be repetitive. So, this time, the concentration is more on the story than the character. We have taken traits of Maya from the previous season and taken the thought of her and weaved it into a new story with an agenda. So last time, it was all about her obsession with love, this time it is revenge. So, the obsession part is the same, but the reason for it is different. And when that changes, automatically the way she reacts to things changes.”
Set to premiere on the 2nd December on Sony TV, Beyhadh 2 features Jennifer Winget, Ashish Chowdhry and Shiv Narang in pivotal roles.
