Such was the popularity of Masaba Masaba that Netflix India obviously greenlit the second season a fortnight after the initial season dropped on the digital platform. However, it’s anything but a huge delay since to take the Masaba and Neena Gupta starrer on floors. While the plan to move the second portion in April was spoiled by the lockdown, it has been discovered that maker Ashvini Yardi and director Sonam Nair are set to start off the shoot in Mumbai one month from now.
“Masaba and Neenaji will report to the set by mid-July. While senior actors like Neenaji are fully vaccinated, only those who have at least got the first dose will be allowed on the set.” The series — a dramatised version of the life and loves of the celebrated fashion designer — will focus equally on her actor-mother’s journey in the upcoming season. “When the makers had approached her, Neenaji had narrated certain interesting incidents from her life, which have now found a mention in her autobiography, Sach Kahun Toh. These incidents will be included in the new episodes. The makers have yet to speak to Masaba’s cricketer father Vivian Richards, but there is a possibility of him making an appearance too,” sources from the creative team said.
Yardi and Nair stayed inaccessible for comment.
