There's a saying 'Hell Hath No Fury Like a Woman Scorned' and when it comes to revenge, an angry woman can go to any length. In MX Original Series Ek Thi Begum season 1, we saw how a loving Ashraf was scorned and vowed to avenge her husband's murder. Facing the impossible task of bringing Maqsood (Ajay Gehi), the most powerful don of his times to justice, Ashraf broke through the glass ceiling of brutal masculinity called Mumbai’s Underworld. The first season ended on a cliffhanger where Ashraf's life is at stake. But season 2 sees her return from the brink of death under the alias of Leela Paswan and she’s even more determined to succeed.
