ALTBalaji’s unconventional yet highly awaited season 3 of OTT show Broken But Beautiful’s earlier seasons became a success with the tracks and the storyline, receiving love from the audience. The first two seasons featured Vikrant Massey and Harleen Sethi in the lead, but the third outing will see the story shift a new duo played by Sidharth Shukla and Sonia Rathee.

Season 3 will be here and 2021 is the year of love, with its perfections and imperfections.
