What inspired you to take up Poison 2?
Poison 2 has an amazing storyline and a contemporary/fascinating solid. I checked out it as a possibility to develop (enhance) my footprint within the webspace. My character is totally totally different from what I did in Dil Hello Toh Hai. Poison is a brilliant hit franchise and this season has extra motion/deceit than the primary half.

We had just a few sittings with the director Vishal Pandya and the artistic crew to know the character and the temper of the present. I additionally watched Poison to get an concept in regards to the DNA of the online sequence.

OTT and movies are fairly related so far as an actor is worried as these aren’t long run commitments (not like TV). The attain, nevertheless, is totally totally different.
Movies supply a superlative and uninterrupted viewing expertise in theatres. However, OTT offers a worldwide attain to good content material.
