Rasika Dugal on revisiting a role in new season

Actress Rasika Dugal feels reprising a role in the second season of a web series is like meeting an old friend again. The actress reprises her role of Dr Meera in the second season of the revenge drama web series “Out Of Love”.  After a thrilling season one, Out of Love is set to return with its next season on Disney+ Hotstar VIP. Actors Purab Kohli and Rasika reprise their roles as estranged couple Meera and Akarsh in the drama series where everything is fair in hate and war! With a singular focus on revenge, the story gets murkier and more complicated than ever before. 

Talking about the series, Rasika said “It’s interesting to revisit a character in a subsequent season. Initially, I used to be nervous because I wasn’t used to portraying a character after everybody had watched it and given their opinion. But I’ve begun to enjoy it now. It’s like meeting an old friend again because you understand who they are and how they are wired but you know that they have also changed since the last time you met them.” 

On the transformation her character Dr Meera goes through in season two, the actress added: “Meera at the end of season one and beginning of season two is almost like two different people. At the end of season one she was struggling to come to terms with the collapse of her seemingly perfect life. At the beginning of season two, we see that she has moved on, rebuilt her life and is living with a sense of contentment.”
