Sunil Grover In A Still From ‘Sunflower’

Sunil Grover, Ashish Vidyarthi, Ranvir Shorey, Mukul Chaddha and Girish Kulkarni are back for the second season of ‘Sunflower’. The first season created a huge buzz and turned out to be a massive hit. But, in the end, it left us all on a cliffhanger with Sunil Grover in the midst of it all. Now, the team of ‘Sunflower’ is all set to return for the second season of the show. The makers have just announced that the show’s second season will soon premiere on Zee5.

However, there is some even better news for all fans of the Sunil Grover starrer show. Zee5 has decided to show the first season of the show free of cost on the platform to create the necessary buzz for the second season. People who may have missed the first season or maybe want to brush up on their first season can watch the first season free from now till January 31.

For the unversed, the first season ends at a point where the police are searching for the killer and somehow Sunil Grover ends up at the wrong place at the wrong time and becomes the prime suspect. He has been referred to as the most loved murder suspect of India. And why so? Well, it’s his way of talking, his body language, his cutesy gestures and above all, his overconfidence about being able to solve the murder mystery that gets Sunil Grover to fall into this soup. Will he be able to get himself out of it? Will there be some newer twists in the tale which might get him to fall into deeper trouble? Well, the second season does come with a lot of promises.

Talking of the show, Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said in a press statement, "As we begin the new year, we are elated to announce the return of 'Sunflower,' an eagerly awaited series that boasts of an incredible fan base for Season 1. Notably, the series has earned its place among IMDb's top 50 web series of all time, solidifying its status as one of the most-watched series on ZEE5. Collaborating with Vikas Bahl has always been an enriching experience, with his track record of delivering exceptional stories. We are confident that the stellar cast, led by the talented Sunil Grover, will once again set the benchmark for crime comedy-drama, offering our audience a fresh and exciting experience."

Adding to the same thought, Nimisha Pandey, Chief Content Officer – Hindi Originals ZEE5 said in the same press statement, “After the resounding success of Sunflower, we at ZEE5 are thrilled to bring to the audience, season 2. The eagerly anticipated new season promises to captivate audiences with a delightful blend of thrill, comedy, and drama, which truly sets this show apart.

We hope the new season entertains diverse audiences with an engaging experience even more than the first season.”

While everyone has been raving about Sunil Grover’s performance, people have slightly overlooked the fact that the show has been made by master showman, Vikas Bahl, who has previously made projects like ‘Queen’, ‘Shandaar’ and ‘Super 30’.

“I am truly humbled by the immense love and support the first season of Sunflower has garnered from fans. Sunil Grover's portrayal of the endearing yet quirky Sonu Singh has resonated with audiences, creating a fan base that is nothing short of phenomenal. With the upcoming second season, our aim is to elevate this suspenseful murder mystery to new heights. Viewers can anticipate more layers, more intrigue, and a deeper exploration of the beloved characters, promising a rollercoaster ride of emotions, laughter, and numerous twists. Fans are in for a treat as we unveil a fresh chapter that not only continues the legacy but also adds a whole new dimension to this intriguing story,” said showrunner Vikas Bahl.
