Hussain Zaidi praises MX Player’s Ek Thi Begum season 2
When you think of India’s criminal underworld, you tend to imagine it as a big boys’ club. But there has been a slate of deadly women who have broken into its ranks. One such story, currently in the spotlight, is that of Ashraf aka Leela Paswan (Anuja Sathe) from MX Player’s Ek Thi Begum 2, who is seen fearlessly dominating a man’s world and her story is getting a lot of praise – this time from none other than Hussain Zaidi, former investigative journalist and one of India’s most acknowledged crime writers. Speaking about the web series, Hussain Zaidi said, “The underworld constitutes a wholly different universe, and it takes thorough research behind making a show based on the subject. While Ek Thi Begum Season 1 presented the story of Ashraf Bhatkar who had wreaked havoc in the underworld in order to avenge the death of her husband. The makers and actor Anuja Sathe have managed to get as close to the real and dark underworld in the show. I’ve always believed that their stories from being victims to victors makes for a fascinating watch as long as there’s no glamorization and romanticism of their lives. The second season of the series, which is inspired from true events, looks promising and kudos to the makers who have weaved the underworld on screen in a very real manner.”
