Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said, “The first season of the show received enormous love from the audience, and we look forward to canvassing a fresh chapter of Taj in season 2 with more interesting situations unravelling to keep our viewers hooked. This season captures the new conflicts that arise within the Mughal empire, with each character evolving to showcase a much more exciting plot. ‘Taj – Reign of Revenge’ reaffirms our commitment of presenting engaging and gripping content on ZEE5 and we are looking forward to another successful season”.
Excited about the new season, actor Aashim Gulati aka Prince Salim said, “Periodic dramas are something that has always caught my eye and now being in one has been an exhilarating journey. I am glad that the audiences have loved season one of the series and all I can say is that Salim’s character arc in S2 is something to look out for. S2 is grittier, darker, bolder and personally for me, my best yet.”
