Desk Correspondent, abptakmaa, Kolkata, 13th Dec 2019 : Ragini is back to spook everyone out once again. Putting an end to the long wait for fans of the series, ALTBalaji and ZEE5 finally launched the trailer of the brand new season of their most awaited franchise-Ragini MMS Returns 2. The dhamakedar duo just dropped the trailer of one of the most awaited horrex franchise, in a double dhamakedar manner. Punting on the relevance of Season 2, the trailer was launched at 21:21 PM on 12.12.2019.
Packed with heavy doses of suspense, action and all the thrills one expects in the horrex show, Ragini MMS Returns Season 2 stars real-life couple Divya Agarwal and Varun Sood along with the sizzling Sunny Leone who is already making headlines with her ‘Hello Ji!’ number and will be seen playing a paranormal expert in the series. ALTBalaji and ZEE5 also created a special 10 minutes VR clip for a surreal experience to transport the fans of Ragini MMS to her world. The web-series launches on 18th December on ALTBalaji and ZEE5.
The trailer gives a glimpse into the world of Ragini Shroff, a final year student played by Divya Agarwal. The leader of the pack, she knows how to fight back and hence no one likes to mess with her. As her closest friend, Varsha is getting married; she goes on an all-girls trip with her friends to celebrate the bachelorette. Unaware of the fact that a gang of boys, who also happen to be their friends from college followed them on this trip, the girls reach a recently opened hotel in the woods. The owner of the hotel, Rahul, played by the handsome Varun Sood, meets Ragini here for the first time and there is an instant chemistry between them. Rahul is good looking and the quintessential nice guy. He is smart, intelligent and genuinely likes Ragini. Running a hotel for his family, he also knows what responsibility is.
Things start to slip out of hand on the first night itself when Ragini feels something is wrong with the place, but others don’t take her seriously. Soon things go from bad to worse and the whole group succumbs to the paranormal activities one by one and go missing one by one. Soon they all decide to leave the place. What follows next is a series of scary events that turn their world upside down. Devastated by this, Ragini decides to take matters into her own hands and soon secrets tumble out.
Adding the oomph factor to the latest season is its peppy song ‘Hello Ji!’ featuring the stunning Sunny Leone which is already taking audiences across the country by storm and clearly emerged as the party anthem of the year. Composed by accomplished music-director duo Meet Bros and choreographed by the talented Vishnu Deva, the song is sung by the Baby Doll singer, Kanika Kapoor.
On the trailer launch, Content Czarina Ekta Kapoor said, “We had these 2 young faces Divya and Varun as the lead who enjoy a massive fan following but wanted this one slam dunk moment which only the face of Ragini MMS could bring in. That’s how we roped in Sunny Leone for the song as well as for a cameo in the series. She is truly magnificent and so are all other actors of the series. I love the fact that the series has this young and vibrant cast who has performed impeccably well. I am so happy and equally proud of doing this franchise.”
Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 India said, “It has been a fantastic year for us at ZEE5 and we have successfully managed to establish ourselves as a platform, where everyone can find something of their interest to binge-watch. Our collaboration with ALTBalaji is further helping us grow from strength to strength. We are now, looking forward to add Ragini MMS Returns Season 2 to our content library. It is an exciting series and we are certain it will be loved by our audiences.”
Sunny Leone said, “I had a great time shooting for the song as well as my cameo in the series. The lyrics are very catchy and I rehearsed multiple times just so that I get the hook step perfectly. It actually feels amazing that the song has already become so popular and everyone is dancing to its tunes. I am glad I could be a part of this.”
On the trailer launch, Divya Agarwal said, “I feel proud to be a part of a show like Ragini MMS. I have been following this franchise and it is a dream come true moment for me that I am a part of this finally. The journey has been overwhelming and challenging and I would like to thank Ekta ma’am for believing in me and giving me this huge opportunity to take this legacy forward. I hope I have done justice to the show and viewers will enjoy it the way they have enjoyed the previous season and the films.”
Varun Sood quipped, “I am happy that through Ragini MMS Returns 2, I got the chance to share screen-space with Divya in a full-fledged acting project like this. This is like a dream debut for me as this is the biggest horrex franchise in India. We had great fun while shooting, especially our mini-reunion with Sunny Ma’am. We both have worked together in reality show with Sunny but this experience was something different for us and will always stay close to my heart.”
The show promises to be a whirlwind of suspense, action, thrills, and chills and will have secrets spilling out that will keep the audience hooked and how!
