4. Gaurav Arora – Kesar Bhardwaj

Kesar played by Gaurav Arora is a complicated character. In the first season of Asur, the audiences were unaware of his past but in Asur 2, his past is revealed.

5. Amey Wagh – Rasool Sheikh

Amey Wagh played the character Rasool Sheikh in Asur 2. Rasool plays an important part in Shubh’s plan. He manages to hide his true identity from the CBI even after being a mole.
