Jaideep Ahwalat confirms season 2 of Paatal Lok, says 'would love to take the story forward'
New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: After the widespread success of Amazon Prime's crime-thriller 'Paatal Lok', the makers have confirmed plans to come up with the second season of the web series, confirmed Jaideep Ahlwaat, as per a media report. "As far as I know, the hint that I have gotten is that Sudip sir is already working on it [scripting season 2]. I hope it happens and I would love to take the story forward," he told pinkvilla.com
The lead actor has also confirmed his re-appearance in the second season. The 42-year-old said, "It might be a different case or the continuation of the same case as season 1, I don't know. But, I would love to play Hathiram again. His involvement has just started. Hathiram has just entered the game. We feel that he will finally start now. Now, things are in his favour," as quoted by Pinkvilla.
While the season one was inspired by Tarun Tejpal's book titled 'The Story of My Assassins' inspired by true events, in Season 2 the makers are looking to delve into India's underworld. "Unlike the first part that had its roots in a book, creator-writer Sudip Sharma and the creative team are developing an original plot for the second installment," reported mensxp.com
In the upcoming season, the writers plan to throw Hathiram Chaudhary into a more complex crime story with story mainly revolving around him, it added.
For Sudip, this is just another streak of writing credits for films. Almost each of his movies eyes to explore the dark side of Indian society. His successful works include NH10 starring Anushka Sharma and Shahid Kapoor-starrer Udta Punjab.
Produced by Anushka Sharma and Clean Slate Films, Paatal Lok also featured Gul Panag, Neeraj Kabi, Swastika Mukherjee, Ishwak Singh, and Abhishek Banerjee. The series is inspired by heaven, earth and hell and the four estates. It has received positive reviews from fans and filmmakers.
