Shibani Dandekar is playing an antagonist ‘Isha Andrews’ in the upcoming crime thriller Hostages season 2 on Hostar. The season 2 has a new talent lineup including Divya Dutta, Dino Morea, Shibani Dandekar and Shweta Basu Prasad. Dalip Tahil, Surya Sharma, Aashim Gulati, Anangsha Biswas and Mohan Kapu have been retained from the first season.
“She is ruthless, fierce, driven yet inexperienced and that at times can mean her insecurities can seep through. Isha is constantly trying to prove herself and for the most part knows what she wants and what she is doing until the underlying fear that she has with Ranbir (Dino Morea) comes into play. I’ve never played the antagonist before and I was so excited to play a different side for a change. It was quite a challenge to balance the softness of Isha with the tough exterior and playing her was a real dream.. we have many parts of our personality that are similar in terms of strength and weaknesses,” says Shibani.
The show director is Sachin Mamta Krishn and series director Sudhir Mishra.
“It was such an incredible experience on set, such a lovely cast that felt like family and the entire unit was so much fun and supportive. When you work in an environment like that, you can really thrive and bring out the best work and hopefully that shows in what we have done with season 2,” adds Shibani.
Amitabh Bachchan took to twitter to share his best wishes to Sachin Mamta Krishn. “He had a dream, came to the Film Industry to fulfil it. Today Sachin Mamta Krishn, has succeeded. He worked on Satyagrah and Aarakshan with me, today he directs and DOP’s this venture releasing on Hotstar. All good wishes “ महाशय “, he wrote.
