 Shivam gupta,

Shivam
opens
up
about
casting
for
Asur
season
2
and
Yeh
Kaali
Kaali
Aankhein
season
2.

Talking
about
Asur
season
2
he
says,”Asur
Season
2
is
going
to
be
much
more
bigger
and
exciting
than
Asur
Season
1.
It
was
very
challenging
in
terms
of
casting
because
I
wanted
to
create
an
ensemble
of
good
actors
and
cast
new
comers
as
well.
Also,
we
have
been
doing
the
auditions
online
which
has
been
quite
challenging
for
us
but
we
explored
this
medium
as
well.
Obviously,
taking
tests
in
studio
one
to
one
is
a
different
thing.
There
are
many
previous
actors
as
well.
The
show
is
about
to
wrap
and
I’m
really
looking
forward
to
it.”

Revealing
about
casting
of
Yeh
Kaali
Kaali
Aankhein
season
2,
he
says,”The
casting
of
Ye
Kaali
Kaali
Aankhe
is
around
the
corner.
The
thing
I
am
most
excited
about
is
the
script.
The
characters
are
unpredictable.
We
are
excited
to
see
where
these
characters
will
take
the
story
ahead
and
what
other
characters
are
added
in
the
new
script.”

Talking
about
the
casting
selection
process
he
says,”Cast
selection
process
is
such
as
the
producers
hire
me
and
then
we
sit
and
discuss
about
the
project.
They
narrate
me
the
story
and
their
vision
and
the
specifics
they
require
in
the
characters
they
want.
After
hearing
the
briefings
we
sit
with
our
team
and
research
for
the
actors
fit
for
the
character
briefs.
As
we
ask
actors
to
send
in
their
introductions
and
details
and
then
we
check
if
there’s
any
resonance
of
them
and
the
character
brief
and
then
we
test
them.
This
process
goes
on
all
over
India
to
find
the
perfect
actor
for
a
particular
part
which
we
try
to
do
with
the
director’s
vision
to
put
it
on
the
big
screen.”

Stating
about
when
an
actor
rejects
a
part
or
role,
he
says,”Yes,
it
feels
bad
that
what
we
were
planning
didn’t
go
well
because
the
actor
rejected
the
offer.
It
feel
like
now
what
because
you
think
that
this
actor
would
be
perfect
for
the
character
and
you
are
framing
him/her
for
it
in
your
mind
and
then
there’s
a
No
from
their
side.
But
atlast
it’s
the
actors
choice
to
do
or
not.
Yeah
overall
it
feels
bad
when
the
wishlist
that
the
director
and
you
create
doesn’t
work
well.”
