Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2 transl. It all feels so good) is an Indian Hindi-language television romantic drama series that premiered on 30 August 2021 on Sony Entertainment Television.[1] It is digitally available on Sony LIV. Produced by Ekta Kapoor under Balaji Telefilms, the show is a spiritual sequel or reboot version of the 2011 series of the same name.[2] It stars Nakuul Mehta and Disha Parmar.[3][4]


Priya Sood hails from a middle-class family and lives with her mother Meera, three sisters Sara, Maitri, Sandy and cousin Akshay. Her father Mahendra, left them, now living with his second wife and their son. Established business tycoon, Ram Kapoor was deserted by his girlfriend Vedika, who married Shashi Babbar. Now, Ram entirely focuses on work and family, which consists of his stepmother Nandini and half-siblings Shubham and Shivina.

Shivina and Akshay are having an affair, but Akshay refuses to marry before Priya marries, thus both couples get married, much to Nandini's displeasure

With her marriage on rocks, Vedika enters the Kapoor mansion, hoping to get Ram back and oust Priya. Shashi pays Mahendra to kill Ram in an accident but he is saved by Priya. Vedika then reveals her past affair with Ram to Priya who still lives with Ram. Finally, Vedika reveals Mahendra being behind Ram's accident and blames Priya of knowing everything. Seeing Ram siding with Priya, a furious Nandini sends Vedika away.

Sara's son Eshan and husband Varun, shift to Mumbai to live with her. Ram decides to reopen the investigation of his father's murder with the help Krish, a private investigator. The Kapoors find a number plate belonging to Virendra, implicating Mahendra and Varun in his murder. Both are incarcerated.

On Shubham's provocation, Shivina tries to leave Sood House, but accidently dies when Eshan pushes her in the staircase. Priya takes the blame and goes to prison. She discovers being pregnant with Ram's child but is manipulated by Nandini, in keeping the child away from Ram.

5 years later

Priya serves her sentence and is blessed with a girl who she names Pihu. Ram signs a costly deal and in order to save it, reunites with Priya in the public eye. Krish starts harbouring feelings for Priya. Vedika and Nandini find the truth behind Shivina's death and threaten Eshan. Ram and Pihu bond and Priya learns about Nandini faking her illness. While Sara marries Vikrant and Maitri becomes a mother, both Ram and Pihu learn about being father-daughter. Nandini creates misunderstanding by sending summons of child custody to both Ram and Priya.

In May 2021, it was confirmed that Ekta Kapoor's show, Bade Achhe Lagte Hain which was originally broadcast from 2011 to 2014 will return with a fresh cast and different storyline.[5]


Nakuul Mehta was finalized to play the male lead, Ram Kapoor.[6] For the female lead Priya Sood Disha Parmar and Rashami Desai was approached, but later Disha was signed by the makers for the female lead, Priya Sood.[3] The show marks the second collaboration between Mehta and Parmar as they previously co-starred in Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara (2012–2014).[7][8]


The first promo of the series was revealed and released by the show producer Ekta Kapoor on 12 August 2021 featuring Nakuul Mehta and Disha Parmar as Ram and Priya.[9] The first look poster of the upcoming season of the series was unleashed by the show leads Disha Parmar and Nakuul Mehta, at the grand finale episode of Indian Idol 12.[10][11] The show's premier date was officially announced on 19 August 2021.[12]


Critical reception

Letty Mariam Abraham of Mid-Day stated "Mehta and Parmar put their best foot forward as they carry the show on their shoulders." She also noted that if the series is "relatable without indulging in melodrama ... it may well surpass its original."[13]

Gursimran Kaur of Times Of India stated "Nakuul Mehta steps into the shoes of Ram Kapoor beautifully. He does justice to his part. Disha Parmar takes the cake with her simplicity and genuinity."[14]


Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2 is among the top 45 most watched Hindi GEC.[15]
