The buddy project gang interview
In an attempt to regain the lost pride of The Royal Academy and to help direct the enrolled students toward constructive personal and academic development, he brings in an old alumnus – Anirudh Jaitley (Manav Gohil). The underlying theme of the show is that life will always send us an "indicator". Someone or something that makes us realise who we really are and what we are actually capable of achieving. The teachers whom we criticize so much, help us out.
The second season of focuses on how KD (Fahad Ali), Ranveer (Kunal Jaisingh), Kiya (Bharti Kumar), Piddi (Nikhil Mehta) and Panchi (Palak Jain) adjust in the Imperial College of Communication after coming out from their comfort zone in Royal Academy. Once best buddies, they have now turned into sworn enemies all because of a simple misunderstanding. We can see some new characters in this season along with the old ones. The main new entries are Avijeet "Avi" Roy (Manish Nawani) who is Superstar Chandan Roy's son, the cool dude of Imperial and the leader of the Dhakkan gang, and Omi Dahiya (Samridh Bawa) who is the desi guy and also the one who leads the Chillar gang. Both these gangs have great enmity towards each other and are always seen fighting. The other new entries are Avi's mischievous sister Avantika Roy (Kanika Kotnala) and Ranveer's radio station partner, Rukmini Sharma (Sonal Vengurlekar) who is struggling in college as she doesn't know English.
Producer Sudhir Sharma wanted the production team to relate to the ideas and thoughts of today's youth and wanted to work with people who could think the way today's youth does (the entire team is under 30 years of age). "We want to think the way today's youth is thinking. We are working with the people who can think the way today's youth thinks," said Sharma. Hence, the story of the show has been written by Sajid Ali, The series has been conceptualized by Anand Sivakumaran, who is also currently writing the story for Channel V's Suvreen Guggal – Topper of The Year and has earlier worked with Sunshine Productions on its highly successful TV series, Miley Jab Hum Tum.
