After the phenomenal success of the first season of its marquee gangster drama, ZEE5 has announced Rangbaaz Season 2 starring Jimmy Shergill and Gul Panag in the lead roles.

Written by Siddharth Mishra (who also wrote Season 1), directed by Sachin Pathak and produced by JAR Productions, Rangbaaz Season 2, is back with another gangster story.

The nine-episode series is an unusual tale of a dream gone wrong. It is a fast-paced, crime thriller which encompasses caste supremacy and political rivalry of a gangster who was also referred to as ‘Robinhood’ by many.

The series further brings to the forefront the fateful encounter that ended his life. This season will also see actors Zeeshan Ayyub and Sushant Singh in key roles.

Shergill said, “The script of Rangbaaz Season 2 is gritty, and action-packed. It is a challenging role inspired from a true story. We started shooting early this month. Season 1 created a lot of noise and fan following. Our attempt with Season 2 is the same.”

Mishra added, “Rangbaaz Season 1 was special as it was a story I had been wanting to write since ’98. For a writer, it is an overwhelming experience when the whole project comes together with a stellar cast, director, producer and a platform like ZEE5. Moreover, the audience and critics loved Season 1 and have been waiting eagerly for Season 2. This time, the story is inspired by true events of another feared gangster, in a completely different landscape and one that will stick with the viewers like it did in the first season. Watch this space for more.”

Pathak said, “The first season of Rangbaaz received rave reviews and massive applause from audiences. I am humbled and thrilled to have the opportunity to direct Rangbaaz Season 2. It is always a challenge to bring to life true stories. The entire team along with ZEE5, the cast and JAR Productions is heavily invested in this and we look forward to celebrating another successful season.”

Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 India, added, “Rangbaaz continues to do very well on our platform with loyal followers and now Season 2 going is going to be bolder, sharper and more entertaining. Jimmy Shergill is a fine actor and we are delighted to have him onboard for this show along with Gul Panag and the other cast who will be announced soon. The story is inspired from true incidents and we are looking forward to launching Season 2 of our most loved franchise.”

Rangbaaz Season 1 was a huge success and starred actors Saqib Saleem, Ranvir Shorey, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Ravi Kishan, Aahana Kumra among others.
