When Beyhadh returned with its second season on 2 December 2019, fans couldn’t control their excitement. The original launch of the season had been a massive hit, and Jennifer as Maya had craved a niche for herself. Dressed in all black Maya was ready to give everyone a ride of her ‘Beyhadh nafrat’ with a new cast. As Jenny reprised her role, Shivin Narang as Rudra and Ashish Chowdhry as Mritunjay joined the revenge drama, to make it more enticing and meaty.
With the very first episode, fans loved the ensemble cast and intense feel of the show. Each episode gave them an insight into the Maya’s hatred for MJ and how badly she wanted to destroy his peace for whatever he did to her in the past. However, while the central theme remained revenge, viewers also got to see Maya and Rudra’s romance. While Maya planned to use MJ’s son against him to avenge herself, she grew fond of Rudra and the two became TV’s new couple.
MayRa became a fan favourite, and the audience wanted to know how their story headed forward.

7 times when Beyhadh 2 made headlines:
1. Rajat Verma’s exit aka Rishi’s death:
The actual drama began when Maya took her first revenge from MJ. Maya played her cards well and got close to MJ’s younger son Rishi (Rajat Verma). With her tactics, she made Rishi fall in love with her. The young lad fell in love with Maya after she saved him from drowning. However, he was unaware of her agenda and went on to do whatever she said. Later, when she was sure that Rishit could do anything for her, she asked him to prove his love for her and slit his wrist. She asks him to play the trick and blackmail Maya.
Initially, Rishi was skeptical, but his love and trust in Maya, made him do the unexpected. He cut his wrist with a knife, without any questions. While Maya had assured to help him and be by his side, she left him dying in the room all alone. She killed him to avenge the death of her innocent unborn child. This was Maya’s first successful revenge on MJ, which made fans eager to see how the drama unfolds further.
