Earlier this year, award-winning producer Guneet Monga’s Sikhya Entertainment partnered with Flipkart Video to develop a one-of-a-kind, interactive crime-thriller series – Kaun? Who Did it? The innovative show hinged on India’s love for crime fiction and introduced viewers to the world of crime and suspense, while also allowing them to play detective and win exciting prizes. After a successful first season that left audiences at the edge of their seats with a nail-biting cliffhanger, the series is set to return with season 2, featuring television star Sushant Singh as retired detective Adi Bhagat and film and theatre actress Samvedna Suwalka as his protégé, Assistant police inspector Malini Bidre.
In season 1, Adi and Malini came together to solve multiple cases and the audiences were wowed by Adi Bhagat’s brilliant mind. However, throughout the season, Adi appears to be hiding a dark secret about his past.
The first season culminates with a surprising sequence of events that traps Adi in a web of lies and conspiracies. As Adi decodes the plans of the ‘mastermind’ determined to bring him down, the secrets of his past are unravelled too. The case that forced his early retirement was one where Adi supposedly gunned down 2 innocent victims. Veteran TV writer Sunjoy Shekhar and showrunner Umesh Bist (of Pagglait fame) brilliantly tied-up all the loose ends in the series finale, revealing that the victims of Adi’s alleged mistake were none other than Malini’s parents. As Adi’s past and his present collide, season 1 ends with a shootout between Adi and the ‘mastermind’, leaving Adi lying on the floor with a bullet to his chest.
Season 2 will dive further into Adi and Malini’s shared past. Adi has survived the shootout, but his relationship with Malini seems to have suffered from the revelations in season 1. The trailer shows that Adi’s one condition to continue in his capacity as a police consultant is that Malini continues to work with him. Malini’s refusal to work with Adi, leaves viewers wondering what turn the show will take next.
Commenting on the return of Kaun? Who did it? season 2, actor Sushant Singh said, “I am excited to be back in action with my Kaun? Who did it? family. It only gets bigger and better this time around. It’s been an incredible journey shooting for the second season. There are a lot of unexpected twists in store for the viewer, that are sure to keep everyone on the edge of their seats. Each episode across the series has been designed in such a way that it will also make winning prizes on the Flipkart App even more exhilarating. I am looking forward to seeing audiences tune in and work with Adi and Malini as they crack some of the most seemingly unsolvable crimes!”
Actor Samvedna Suwalka added, “I have been a huge fan of Guneet Monga and her work, and it was an absolute honor to have had the chance to collaborate with her on my first interactive crime fiction show – Kaun? Who did it? It has been a roller-coaster of a journey shooting for season 2, as the show takes unexpected turns and also delves deeper into the relationship between my character Inspector Malini and detective Adi Bhagat played by Sushant Sir. This series marks a huge milestone in my career, and I am looking forward to how audiences react to the latest season.”
Like the previous season, the crime fiction series also features a spine-chilling murder case in every episode. It continues to give audiences the thrilling opportunity to don the detective’s hat and win exciting prizes as they maneuver through intriguing twists, solve cryptic clues, and identify suspects in real-time.
The showwill be live on the Flipkart App starting, 22nd May. Users can access the show by clicking on the Video icon at the bottom right of the Flipkart app’s homepage.
