From Ashraf to Leela Paswan: Anuja Sathe highlights her journey for Ek Thi Begum 2

Revenge is known as the raging fire that has the power to consume you, control you and defeat you. The highly anticipated series Ek Thi Begum is back with its second gripping season in which Anuja Sathe reprises her role as Ashraf and continues her quest for revenge. This season sees her not only enter the world of crime but dominate this masculine world of gangsters and turf wars.

Who was once a loving wife, is now a wanted criminal – chased by the cops, politicians and of course, rival gangsters. The narrative of the first season followed the life of Ashraf, whose husband Zaheer (Ankit Mohan), once the confidante of underworld don Maqsood (Ajay Gehi), got killed. Ashraf adorns the alias of Sapna, a bar dancer and orchestrates a plan to kill everyone responsible for the murder of her husband. She was vulnerable but knew how to use her sensuality and wit as her strengths, but now she’s fueled by vengeance and has no inhibitions left.

The second season begins with the hunt for Leela Paswan, another disguise donned by Ashraf who defied death and returned to her mission of bringing the dreaded and powerful Dubai don to his knees.

On this transition, Anuja Sathe said “From a docile housewife to learning how to load and fire a gun, this is a story of a woman who was unbreakable. Despite physical blows which would destroy another woman, Ashraf’s never say die spirit keeps her going and that is a quality I will take back with me. She is not your run-of-the-mill female protagonist, she is not righteous, her ways are illegal at best but in her own way, she carves a niche for herself, and she is real which makes her all the more relatable.”

 “With all the positive feedback I received for season 1 and the audience’s high expectations, for me, the challenge was to only take this role notches higher. Leela Paswan aka Ashraf will always remain one of the fiercest characters in my career”, adds the actress.

Directed by Sachin Darekar and Vishal Modhave, this series also stars Shahab Ali, Chinmay Mandlekar, Vijay Nikam, Resham Shrivardhankar, Rajendra Shisatkar, Nazar Khan, Hitesh Bhojraj, Sauraseni Maitra, Lokesh Gupte, Mir Sarwar, Purnanada Wandekar and Rohan Gujar in pivotal roles.
