The trailer shows us that its main focus has now been shifted towards a standoff between father-daughter duo Ameya Rao Gaikwad and Poornima Gaikwad. These two characters were not ready to give away as the family quarrel for power and position. This further lead to a lot of back-stabbing, double-crossing, and bloodshed.
Poornima Gaikwad continues to fight to gain control over the state. She locks horns with her father as the two put several lives at stake while the state gears up for elections. As the trailer reveals Poornima Gaikwad is the interim Chief Minister of Maharastra and the head of Maharashtra Jan Shakti Party (MJS). She gets help from Wasim Khan and former state chief Jagdish Gurav.
While on the other side Gaikwad is not at all ready to give up. He shakes hands with the opposition and nominates Poornima’s ex-husband Mahesh Arvale as the Chief Ministerial in the upcoming state elections. How the two sides lock horns and engage in a ruthless tug-of-war of politics, forms the core of the plot.
Speaking about the show, Atul Kulkarni said, “Ameya Rao Gaikwad is a special character for me. There’s an almost sinister quality to him that makes his desire and resolve to hold a position of power stronger than his sense of family bonds. If the brother-sister battle for politics in season one was shrewd, then the father vs daughter tussle in season two is going to be doubly intense.”
Actor Priya Bapat added, “Poornima Gaikwad is inspiring and it has been heartening to see how women have found her empowering. In the second season, audiences will see an even more daring, grittier, and determined Poornima whose political ambitions take precedence over anything else. I am very proud to be essaying such a strong female role who drives the narrative of the show, shatters stereotypes, and fights against all odds to strive in a male-dominated world.”
The City of Dreams (Season 2) stars Atul Kulkarni, Priya Bapat, Eijaz Khan, and Sachin Pilgaonkar, while actor Sushant Singh is the new addition to the cast this time.
The City of Dreams (Season 2) is going to be released on 30th July 2021 on Disney Plus Hotstar.
The director Nagesh Kukunoor has further shared, “It was overwhelming to see how viewers got invested in the life of the characters in the City of Dreams S1. As the story goes forward, I hope we can live up to the audience’s expectations. It’s going to get murkier and personal, and the fight for power is going to destroy many households.”
