A few days ago, there was buzz that Aarti Khetarpal will join the cast of Ragini MMS Returns, Season 2, the series spun off from one of the most popular Bollywood horror movies, Ragini MMS. Now, Indian Horror Club can exclusively confirm that Aarti Khetarpal is part of the upcoming horrex web series. There’s no clarification on what character Khetarpal will play, but with Khetarpal’s background, it would be a major character. She made her debut with the music video, Sama – The Summer Love. Later on, she starred in the SonyLIV web series, Love, Ishq aur Rent. Sources tell us Aarti will play the boldest character in the Ragini MMS Returns Season 2. Aarti has an advertising background as well. She has featured in more than a 50 ad films. Aarti has already signed up for two other web series, one on SonyLIV, titled Girl’s Talk.
Ragini MMS first started out as a film that released in 2011 and was one of the most successful Bollywood horror movies. The film was a sleeper hit, and gave rise to the sequel, Ragini MMS 2. This time, the Bollywood horror film starred Sunny Leone and others. Later, when Balaji launched their streaming platform, Ragini MMS became one of their most successful and popular web series. The first season starred Karishma Sharma and others. The series started streaming last year, on October 19. With the casting done, it seems that the streaming date for Ragini MMS Returns will be sometime in October as well – nearing Halloween time.
The streaming platforms have really become the go to platforms for interesting and edgy projects like Ragini MMS and its ilk. Every other platform, including home brewing ones like ZEE5 are working closely to create horror web series that’ll cater to a younger, more open audience. In fact, ALTBalaji was the first platform to openly say their series is a horrex one. That’s all the better for the discerning Bolywood horror fan. This might just be the second golden era for the Bollywood horror fan.
