The second season of Netflix’s hit period drama Bridgerton will also feature a cover version of Karan Johar’s multi-starrer film Kabhi Kushi Kabhie Kam. Released in 2001, it starred Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Jaya Bachchan, Kajol, Rani Mukherjee, Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor. Indian-origin actor Charitra Chandran, who plays Edwina Sharma in the show, recalled the moment when she recently learned that the K3G song will be a part of the show.

Charitra, who spent a few years of her childhood in India before returning to the United Kingdom, described the moment as a conflict between her two worlds. At a news conference on Monday, he recalled that the showrunner asked Chris Van Duson for a cover on the sets, which broke down and he immediately texted.
In the Daily Mail, as Charitra said, “For me, that song was Bollywood staple, when it came out, it was’ Hold on, ‘and then rewind and pause immediately to Chris,’ It really, really brought tears to my eyes because it was a clash of my two worlds. When you grow up to be a child of immigrants, sometimes it’s very hard to identify yourself and you never know where you are. “
The actor added, “It’s one of the most important moments you’ve had to go through, ‘Ah, well, I understand now. I can be both, I can do both’. Especially that song – it’s a family song and it has great meaning behind it. It makes sense,” So it’s my identity and I love it. “
Charitra had earlier told The Telegraph that her friends had told her that she had only got one role ‘because she was brown in Bridgerton’. “The really scary thing is that you start to believe it and think, ‘The only reason I played Edwina is because they’re looking for an Indian family.’
Based on a series of books of the same name written by Julia Quinn, Bridgerton follows eight members of the Bridgerton family as they try to find love in Regency-era England. The first season received 82 million views worldwide. It was once the most watched series on Netflix before the Korean thriller Squid game. Its second season will begin streaming on Netflix on March 25.
