29th May 2023: JioCinema is all set to showcase the gripping amalgamation of mythology with science with the premiere of the highly anticipated Asur 2, streaming exclusively for free from 1st June. After creating a stir with the first look promo, the platform has doubled up the excitement and unveiled the trailer today. Directed by Oni Sen, Asur 2 starring Arshad Warsi, Barun Sobti, Ridhi Dogra, Anupriya Goenka, Amey Wagh, Meiyang Chang, Gaurav Arora, amongst others in key roles promises a spell-binding experience with its intense plot and nail-biting suspense.

Arshad Warsi shared his excitement for the launch of the show and said, “Asur is very special to me, the journey has been fabulous, personally and cinematically. It was overwhelming to see the love that poured in for the show and we as a team had been as eager as the audience was for the release of the second season. The second installment of shows come with a different set of expectations and pressure, but when something like this mounts up, it’s rewarding. The fandom has reignited, and we can’t wait to see the reactions with its release on JioCinema. I’ve been waiting for a long time for you all to see this.”
Barun Sobti expressed his feelings and said, “For me, Asur has been an emotional awakening. I owe it to this show to unravel so many facets of me as an individual, and as an actor. It is also the love of the audience that made Asur what it is today. I can assure you that Season 2 is worth the wait and is sure to create an uproar.”
Ridhi Dogra further commented, “When I read the script for Asur, I knew we had something big in our hands but the kind of reaction the series has received has been every bit surreal. Season 2 was always on the cards, but we needed time to do justice to the story and to the fandom of the show. We’re all geared up to showcase our labour of love on JioCinema!”
Anupriya Goenka also stated, “Asur has been one of the most crucial roles for me, I am extremely proud of the show and have worked with some of the most creative minds in the process. It’s heartwarming to see the love it’s getting from every nook and corner…We’re excited and emotional at the same time to bring Season 2 on JioCinema for you all, and we’re certain that this will be loved the same way the first season was.”
