Director Sourav Chakraborty is back with the second season of political-drama series Rajneeti, set to explore the power dynamics in the politically volatile fictional town of Rijpur. Titled Abar Rajneeti, Season 2 of the series is slated to premiere on Hoichoi on May 24, the makers announced alongside a trailer on Friday.

“A new warrior is entering the battlefield to seize the throne of Rijpur. The political game is about to become even more terrifying! What new twist will the politics bring this time? #AbarRajneeti: Official Trailer | Series directed by @souravact premieres on 24th May, only on #hoichoi,” the official handle of the streamer wrote on X alongside the trailer.


Ditipriya Roy reprises her role as Rashi, the daughter of a political bigwig Rathin Banerjee (Kaushik Ganguly) and Mallika (Konineeca Banerjee). The previous season ended with the sudden death of Rathin due to a heart attack during an election campaign, with Mallika taking up the reins of the party. When Rashi learns that Mallika might have orchestrated Rathin’s death, she decides to take a political plunge as well. With the mother and daughter facing off, the politics of Rijpur is bound to heat up.

The surprises do not end here. Rathin’s elder brother Pratim Banerjee (also played by Kaushik Ganguly), who was absconding all these years, has returned. Meanwhile Rashi’s childhood friend Shaunak (Arjun Chakrabarty) and her doctor Debojit (Aniruddha Gupta) are also important pawns in this game of thrones.

Abar Rajneeti is the latest addition to Sourav Chakraborty’s collaborations with Hoichoi. His last web series Chemistry Mashi, which marked Debasree Roy’s OTT debut, premiered on Hoichoi in February.
