Jennifer Winget is back as Maya with Beyhadh 2. This time Maya is more dangerous than ever with revenge in her mind. In an exclusive chat with PINKVILLA, Jennifer opened up on how she differentiates between Maya then and now, if she is an obsessive person, her first shot as Maya and if she feels validated for taking up this role given the challenges it comes with. Jennifer being her candid self agreed that she is more than happy to have taken up this role since it is very rare for women to get such opportunities. 

On the difference in Maya, Jennifer said, "We have established the character pretty well now and we did not want it to be repetitive. So, this time, the concentration is more on the story than the character. We have taken traits of Maya from the previous season and taken the thought of her and weaved it into a new story with an agenda. So last time, it was all about her obsession with love, this time it is revenge. So, the obsession part is the same, but the reason for it is different. And when that changes, automatically the way she reacts to things changes. We are aware of the fact that there will be comparisons, so, it is a very thin line we are treading on."

When asked if she is obsessed with anything at all, she replied, "I am not an obsessive person. I am a very caring person. I care about people around me, things in my life. I don't think I am obsessed."

Recalling her first shot as Maya, Jennifer reiterated, "It was in the office. I couldn't do it right. The makers had to come and tell me that I needed to look stronger; I was blinking my eyes too much but eventually, I did get it right. But, this time because I understand the character better, I am concentrating on doing it better. For this season, I shot the boxing ring shot first and I got it right the first time."

Lastly, when asked if she feels satisfied for having taken up this role, Jennifer shared, "Yes. Not just because the character is appreciated. When I first the narration of the show, I had said that I have to do this. Whether it works or not, I have to do it because it is very rare that women get opportunities to play a complex character. No awards or rewards, it is just that this beautiful character I have got to play and I will play it again and again."

Beyhadh 2 premieres from December 2, 2019.
