Exactly a month before it’s release, Vikram Bhatt has release the first look poster of his brand new web series Maaya 2. His show Maaya made headlines in 2017 with its bold avatar starring Shama Sikander. The actress played the role of Sonia and the story highlighted the personal life of a woman who lives a parallel life as Maaya, who is a submissive in the world of BDSM. A year later the show is coming back with a brand new season. This time around the show will highlight the complexities of being the person belonging to the LGBT community.

Revolving around two main characters Simmi and Ruhi, Maaya is the story of acceptance of ones sexuality. Starring two reputable television faces, Leena Jumani from Kumkum Bhagya and Priyal Gor, the story revolves around Simmi who’s a closeted lesbian woman engaged to a man hiding away from her truth and Ruhi, a far more liberal out of the closet girl. The two discover love, acceptance and a desire to be who they truly are in the brand new season of Vikram Bhatt’s Maaya 2, directed by his daughter, Krishna Bhatt. The second season of the show show will premiere on VB on the Web on 30th May. Also Read - Against All Odds: The Inspirational Journey of Karnataka’s First Trans-woman Doctor
