Actor Athar Siddiqui was making a huge impact with his mythological avatar playing the demon Mahabali in Jag Janani Maa Vaishno Devi and now he is all set to witness a new avatar in Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya 2. The Star Plus show is coming back after over a decade and has several new actors for different roles along with Pooja Gor, Arhaan Behll and Anupam Shyam reprising their roles.
Siddiqui will play Chetan Hansraj's brother in the show. Talking about it to Times of India, Siddiqui said "Yes, I'm playing an antagonist in the show. My character is a psycho who kills people for fun."
He added, "I'm usually approached for playing negative roles in mythological shows. The casting team probably feels that my eyes are evil and maybe that is one of the reasons I am offered such roles! But I have no regret as I enjoy playing these roles and take it as a challenge and a new opportunity each time. I'm happy that finally I got a family drama for a change and I want to explore this genre a lot more."
An on-air date for Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya 2 hasn't been set yet.
