Maya, who was adored for her obsessive love in the last season of Beyhadh, will be seen in a mysterious and intriguing avatar. Jennifer Winget plays an elusive thriller author Maya Jaisingh who becomes a sensation when her first novel becomes a bestseller, yet nobody has ever seen her face, she has zero social media presence and her identity is guarded.

He thinks he is invincible and can overpower anyone. Yet, he is god-fearing and loves his two sons Rudra played by Shivin and Rishi played by Rajat Verma. While Rudra is a charmer, who has faced betrayal in love in the past, Rishi is a happy-go-lucky guy.
The alluring Maya will seduce both the brothers. While Rudra doesn’t believe in love anymore, he still falls for Maya who plays hard to get and is a challenge he must take up. For Rishi, Maya is an innocent older woman, a damsel in distress, who he falls for. Maya, meanwhile, plans her next move to destroy them both. But, why is she playing the two brothers at the same time? What happened in the past that there is so much hatred in her? Where will she stop? Are they mere pawns in her road to revenge?

When I first came across the show’s script, I knew I am going to love it as it looked extremely promising and worth applauding.
