In an interview with Mid-Day, Shriya Pilgaonkar revealed that every character in season two of The Broken News has been flipped, especially Radha. While in season one, Radha was seen as an ethical and principled journalist, The Broken News 2 will show a different side to her.

"After being called a terrorist, my character, in season two, is going through an inner conflict. She has taken things personally. It took me a while to let go of control while playing Radha because she was making certain choices that I would never make. I had to stop myself from judging her," she told the tabloid.

The actress enjoyed discovering new layers to her character and also reuniting with her co-stars, Jaideep Ahlawat and Sonali Bendre. She will be busy promoting the web show with them on her birthday today (April 25). "Later in the day, I will catch up with my friends. When I am not shooting on my birthday, I like to travel," said Shiya.
