Maaya 2 is simply superb with no flaws.
A flawless and a two-faced series which gave two messages and both in positive terms. First, it highlighted the acceptance of LGBT community by the society and Second, it showed may what happens but one must stick to their decision and never feel helpless and bothered from the other person’s perspective especially from the one who doesn’t want you to be happy. If somebody isn’t accepting you that doesn’t mean that you are wrong, you are your sole responsibility, love and support.
