Sonali Bendre is gearing up for the second season of her popular web show, The Broken News.

Duplicate, co-starring Shah Rukh Khan in a double role alongside Juhi Chawla, presented Sonali with an opportunity to portray a complex character. "I was approached to play a grey character," she said, expressing her initial excitement about the challenge. "We started preparing for the role and shooting accordingly, but as things progressed, I felt I became a caricature rather than the nuanced character I envisioned."

Sonali’s experience on Duplicate offered valuable lessons. "Every time a Duplicate song is played and people mention the film, the thing that I remember the most is the fact that how much a story can get de-railed and how much you can start with something and where it goes," she explained. "For me, that was a huge learning experience. As time goes by, you start thinking whether I misinterpreted something or it was the other way around," she added further.

Concluding her point, Sonali asserted, “But then, as you go forward, sometimes you do things for that paycheck, but other than that, in my second innings, I don't want to be slotted and boxed, and I want to do characters that break this stereotype."

Speaking of The Broken News, it also stars Jaideep Ahlawat, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Jay Upadhyay, Indraneil Sengupta, Taaruk Raina, Aakash Khurana and Kiran Kumar. The second season of the show will start streaming on the OTT platform from May 3 onwards.
