Speaking on the music and trailer launch, Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 India said, “It has been a fantastic year for us at ZEE5. Our association with AltBalaji has been successful right from the start of our relationship. There has been a great deal of exchange, brainstorming and learning.

At this juncture, we are truly excited to premiere Broken… but Beautiful Season 2 and we hope audiences enjoy the series and the music as well.”
The acclaimed actor Vikrant Massey, portraying the character of Veer, shared, “Seeing the adulation and accolades that the first season garnered, I am absolutely delighted that the excitement ahead of the show’s release is at an all-time high.

I hope audiences love what we have in store and enjoy it to their heart’s content.”
Speaking about her lead role of Sameera, Harleen Sethi quipped, “I was an almost newcomer before the first season, so expectations were minimal. But with the show reaching unprecedented heights, audiences now expect my character Sameera to deliver a power-packed performance.
