Hey Prabhu 2 will take you through Tarun’s workplace struggles, love complications, parental issues, and moving out for the first time.
Social media guru with a perfect online presence and a messed up entity offline: Tarun Prabhu with his happy-go-lucky attitude yet dysfunctional life slayed in Season 1 of MX Original Series, Hey Prabhu. Amidst heightened anticipation, the trailer of Hey Prabhu 2 dropped earlier today. And the too-cool-for-school social media whiz has returned with 10X the problems.
Instead of launching one trailer and before the show premieres, MX Player launched four mini trailers titled The Office Lafda, Dheela Dhakkan, The Family Locha, and Relationship Dhoka. The mini trailers introduce the viewer bit by bit to the dysfunctional life of Tarun Prabhu. The domino effect of all of his #LifeKeLoche is knit together in the main trailer and echoes the problems faced by the youth of the country.
This season will see Tarun tackling several new problems. From a new reporting manager at the workplace, to love complications, parental issues, and moving out for the first time.
Rajat Barmecha reprises his role as Tarun Prabhu this season. The ensemble cast includes Parul Gulati, Achint Kaur, Jasmeet Singh Bhatia, Sonyaa Ayodhya, Pryanca Talukdar, Rituraj Singh, Grusha Kapoor, Dev Dutt, Ashish Bhatia, Raj Bhansali and Neha Panda.
Talking about the second season of the show Rajat Barmecha says, “Tarun is a character that was really fun for me to build up. I’ve loved playing this social media whiz who remains a problematic boy, trying to grow up and match the expectations of his family but still remains immature. I think he is someone that everyone can relate to and that’s great. This season is definitely going to be 10x the fun and drama!”
Parul Gulati said, “No one tells you how hard it can be to be an adult, my own experiences have taught me that the pressure you face today is unparalleled. I’m glad to be a part of a show that isn’t belittling the problems of the youth but normalising it. I’m a person who strives for excellence in everything I do. My character Arunima has a similar streak as well. She’s looking for maturity in her relationship and Tarun just doesn’t seem to keep up.”
Achint Kaur further added saying, “Hey Prabhu 2 speaks about issues everyone tackles at least once in their life, and playing boss lady Meeta has been a pleasure. This season sees her trying unsuccessfully to stay calm in the face of changing times and Tarun doesn’t seem to be helping her cause. Shooting with Rajat and the other members of this crew has been delightful. I hope our offline camaraderie transfers to the screen and is appreciated by the viewers.”
Directed by Abhishek Dogra, all episodes of this MX Original Series will stream, starting 26th March – only on MX Player.
