Beyhadh 2 starring Jennifer Winget and Shiving Narang premiered on December 2, 2019, and received a thunderous response from the audience. While shooting for the show, Jennifer met with an accident, but it was Shivin who turned out to be her saviour.
Jennifer and Shivin who play Maya and Rudra on the show, had their first shoot together at a construction site. During the shoot, Jennifer was in a lift used by construction site workers and had a harness attached to her. However, things went awry when the lift lost control and dropped from the top floor. Jennifer's harness got stuck in the lift and she was getting dragged with it when Shivin came to her rescue and saved her from falling. Both got injured in this accident.
Shivin spoke about the incident, and said, "Our first shoot together was an outdoor shoot at a construction site and I was quite excited. The sequence was one where Jennifer was supposed to be in a lift. While performing such stunt sequences, the production takes utmost care of the artists and even Jennifer had her harness and other safety gear on but unfortunately her harness got stuck and she was about to get dragged with the lift from top floor when I instantly reached out for her and grabbed her. In the course of saving her, I injured myself and my hand got hurt and she got a few bruises here and there and both of us were terrified.''
The new season also features Ashish Chaudary and Rajat Verma. '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,'' Jennifer Winget had told Pinkvilla.
She added, ''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. We are aware of the fact that there will be comparisons, so, it is a very thin line we are treading on.''
