Arhaan Behll started his television career with Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya in 2009. So, now working on the second season is like a homecoming for the actor. Behll reprises his role of Krishna Singh in the latest offering and is presently busy shooting for the show that goes on air soon.
“I always had a very strong feeling that this show would have another season someday. We would often talk about this as well. So, when I was approached for it this time, I saw my thoughts coming true and I got really excited. I was also curious to know what the story would be this time. When I got the narration and found out more about it, my excitement just doubled… From 2009 to now in 2021 many things have changed for good. We have evolved and how,” says the actor.

Looking back, Behll remembers every bit of making the first season. “Certain moments like the first shot, our schedule in Allahabad, the initial setup of Sajjan House and developing the chemistry between the characters, would always be prominent in my memory,” he shares.

Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigyaa 2 is produced by Rajan Shahi and Pearl Grey is the writer, showrunner and creative producer. The show will also see Pooja Gor and Anupam Shyam reprise their popular characters Pratigya and Sajjan Singh respectively. Season one of the show was a hit but now the industry has changed. These days not all shows run for a long time, it ends if they fail to garner TRPs. Ask Behll he is prepared to face the music and his opinion regarding the current situation in the industry and the actor explains his point of view.
“I’m anyway not in the favour of any show stretching a lot. It might sound unconventional, but I always look at it from the creative angle, rather than the obvious business angle. So whichever show I do, I never think about the months or years this is going to continue. The story is all that matters to me,” he elucidates.
Behll and Gor are reuniting for the show after eight years. Their fans are quite excited. Pooja too had mentioned being happy to work with Arhaan again, and the latter to harbour a similar feeling. “As an actor, she has definitely evolved. She has worked in different platforms and has done a variety of projects in different platforms. We have seen the kind of good work that she has done. And all these have definitely given her a better understanding. Other than that, Pooja is pretty much the same. I never felt like shooting with her after so long,” says Behll, who has been a part of shows such as Chakravartin Ashoka Samrat, Vish Ya Amrit: Sitara and Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka!
