Colors brings investigative thriller Dev2

He thinks like a criminal, is at home around a crime scene and possesses an ironclad will to rid the city of nefarious wrongdoers; Detective Dev Burman returns for an explosive second season on COLORS.

Diversifying the programming line-up with varied genres of content – Dev2 follows the journey of Dev, an investigator with a past who is challenged with piecing together the biggest mystery: his own life!

Aashish Chowdhry reprises the titular role and is joined by an ensemble cast -- Jigyasa Singh, Pooja Bannerjee, Amit Dolawat and Joyshree Arora in pivotal roles. Produced by Peninsula Productions and IMRC Entertainment Pvt Ltd, Dev 2 will premiere on 25th June, and will air every Monday to Thursday at 10:30 PM only on COLORS.

Speaking about the upcoming season of Dev 2, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, COLORS, said, “Crime as a genre is big in the rest of the world but in India we have just one or two shows of such nature in the Hindi General Entertainment space. Dev is our endeavour to open up the gates to such genres. The plot is very real and youngsters and big city dwellers will be able to relate to it completely. Dev’s character has been very interestingly etched out where on one hand he wants to save the world at any cost but on the other hand he must battle his personal demons.”

“Ashish Chowdhry and the rest of the ensemble cast have done a great job portraying their characters. The show has slick production values and deals with modern day crime scenarios like stalking young girls or girls being blackmailed and forced into prostitution etc. We are very excited to put it out for the viewers,” Sharma adds.

Elaborating on the show, Alind Srivastava, Nissar Parvez and Rajesh Chaddha from Peninsula Pictures Pvt ltd and IMRC entertainment Pvt Ltd in a joint statement said, “The show is edgy, action-packed and filled with multiple twists that traces Dev’s journey back to his past and its implications in his life in the present day. His reclusive persona and intuitive approach and most of all his tragic love life have struck a chord with the viewers that lead us to writing the second edition of the series. We hope to keep the audiences at the edge of their seats in this season as well.”

The popular investigative thriller is an amalgamation of mystery, drama, action and emotion that will witness Dev battling con artists, sociopaths, psychopaths and revenge junkies. Dev, with his keen eye for detail will continue to solve mysteries in his own unique ways and analyse the most perplexed situations with ease.
Essaying the role of Dev, Aashish Chowdhry said, “My character has changed from season 1. Earlier Dev was known for his quirks and wit but as people have seen, he was deceived by his closed ones and carries a lot of baggage. Due to his past experiences, his behaviour has changed, and the audience will witness a whole new side of him this time. I am happy that Dev is now a franchise and we hope to continue receiving the love and support from our viewers.”

Commenting on her role, Pooja Bannerjee said, “Mehak’s character is multi layered which is what draws me back to the show. I am happy to be back with Dev2 and work with the cast which is now like a family. My experience has been extremely fulfilling and I’m excited for the journey ahead.”

Commenting on her role, Jigyasa Singh said, “This is the first time that I am entering a show of this genre, and it is both stimulating and challenging for me. It has been a fascinating experience shooting with the cast. I am elated to be a part of a show that has gripping content and a team of experts who have worked tirelessly to create the best on screen experience for the viewers.”

Playing the role of Inspector Amod Narvekar, Amit Dolawat said, “My character, with his love and hate equation with Dev is surely one of the USPs of this season. Navrekar will display many emotions – at one end, he will have a softer or more romantic side whilst on other hand, he will be more intense and powerful. It’s been a great journey since the first season and we promise to keep you enthralled with this season’s gripping narrative.”

As penance for acting against the law, Dev now works as a police consultant; ever so grudgingly, of course. His relationship with his pregnant wife is now even in murkier territory as believes she is in cohorts with his estranged father. To add to this, Dev is also trying to find answers for the mystery of his missing Mother, who from the looks of it is still alive. A child on the way with the woman he hates to love and working with a new sharp, young female protégé Dhwani– will Detective Dev be able to navigate through cases and piece together the biggest case of his own tragic life?
