While there are some recurring stars in Sesne8 Season 2, a few new names have been added to the cast. Bollywood actor Sikandar Kher is one of them. His character in the sci-fi series is yet to be known. Lately, Kher shared that the Sense8 team approached him for the show a few months back.
In his words:
“It’s a small but an important role, and it takes the story ahead. The first season of the show was a massive hit, and I hope season 2 also gets the same appreciation by the audience as season 1 did.”
There are speculations that he might be seen as a baddie. Thus far, we have seen Whispers (Terrence Mann), Sense8’s main antagonist, creating havoc on the show, reports The Christian Time. Thus, if Sikandar Kher allies with him, it will cause widespread devastation.
