From a Baahubali to playing a grandmother, Meghna Malik is all set to take a new turn in Laado 2. The much hated antagonist is all set to turn into a positive protagonist in the new season. Ammaji will be seen as a positive character on the show that goes on air from November in Colors. This time the show will tackle the topic of rape victims inspired by real life incidents. The first season was all about rights for the girl child and honour killings, this season will be about Ammaji’s fight for her grandchildren. The show replace ‘Ek Shrinagar Swabhimaan’ on the 9.30pm slot. Meghna Malik will play Ammaji from Veerpur while Avika Gor and Palak Jain will be her grand-daughters.
Unlike the previous season she will not be wearing a ghagra but a salwar kameez. In keeping up with the times, she will be seen wearing glasses but her attitude remains the same. The story will show that when one of her granddaughters is brutally raped how this grand mother avenges and questions the patriarchial society. Meghna Malik, who essayed the role of a powerful and fierce antagonist in Na Aana Is Des Laado, is back for the show’s second innings. Depicting the role of a larger-than-life personality, Meghna as Ammaji was much loved in season 1 for her bold avatar and will now be seen revealing another side of hers with Laado 2. She plays a caring grandmother who loves her family and can go to any extent to protect her granddaughters. Though she motivates them and wants them to stand on their own feet, she can be the most frightening person that one can come across. She is shrewd, intense, astute, manipulative and vicious. “Na Ana Is Des Laado was a closed chapter for me, so Chapter 2 came as a surprise. Laado2 will see a fresh take on Ammaji’s personality.
I do not want to compare myself to the Ammaji of the previous show and want to approach it with a fresh mind. In Laado2, she is different in mind, body and appearance, and you will see her dressed in bright colors, which is a symbol of hope and a promising future”, said Meghna Malik. Viewers would definitely not want to miss the various facets of Ammaji’s personality. This fresh take on Ammaji’s role is something which will definitely keep fans on the edge of their seats.
