Just 5 days left for The Broken News Season 2’s release, and Sonali Bendre, Jaideep Ahlawat and Shriya Pilgaonkar are leaving no stone unturned to excite fans with their striking rivalry. After taking the OTT platform by storm with immense viewership in 2022, ZEE5 is back with Season 2, releasing on May 3, 2024. You can also watch the show through OTTplay Premium at a reasonable price.

Shriya Pilgaonkar's frustration

Now, Shriya Pilgaonkar talks about how frustrating work it is dealing with TRPs (Television Rating Point or Target Rating Point). The actress, who will be seen as Radha Bhargava, a top-tier journalist from Awaaz Bharati, who is the news face, spills the beans that in the media line, there's truth on one side, and hot news on the other side, and she is the only one getting pressed against the wall with unimaginable pressure. Through this video, she urges fans to watch The Broken News to get a reality check about the media industry, and erase their certain misconceptions.

Yesterday ZEE5 introduced 2 other journalists, Juhi Shergill (Sanjeeta Bhattacharya) and Anuj Saxena (Taaruk Raina), who will be seen in new avatars. In the first season, we got to see them kind of like a rookie journalist, but in Season 2, their calm and serene facial expressions give hints that they have become already accustomed to the media pressure, the ruthless politics, and emotional turmoil.

What to expect from The Broken News Season 2?

The Broken News Season 2 will explore the fierce competition between the lead characters, Ameena Qureshi (Sonali Bendre), Dipankar Sanyal (Jaideep Ahlawat) and Radha Bhargava (Shriya Pilgaonkar). The competition between 2 renowned news channels, Awaaz Bharati and Josh 24x7, spills over from the newsroom, blurring the lines between professionalism and personal connection.


The most curious question is, will Radha be able to fight against the extreme pressure of the competition to win the ratings game? Can Dipankar, who is hungry for success, achieve his goals? Who will succeed in achieving more likes and dislikes from the audience? The truth collides with the ratings game in The Broken News 2. All the twists and turns will make you wonder what journalistic ethics are and about the power of TRPs.
