Paatal Lok: Sudip Sharma Is Developing The Second Season; To Be Led By Jaideep Ahlawat's Cop Character
It's not a day that the Indian show business brings out a show as compelling as Paatal Lok. While the source material of the Jaideep Ahlawat-fronted offering has raised eyebrows — it's inspired by former Tehelka editor-in-chief and rape-accused Tarun Tejpal's book, The Story of my Assassins — the nine-part series has won unanimous praise for astutely mirroring the uncomfortable reality of our society. Now, it's been learnt that the manufacturers are considering developing a second season.
A source on the brink of the project reveals, "Unlike the primary part that had its roots during a book, creator-writer Sudip Sharma and therefore the creative team are developing an ingenious plot for the second instalment. The narrative will again revolve around Jaideep's character Hathiram Choudhary as he investigates a replacement case. Right now, it's at a nascent stage of development."
In an interview to mid-day before the discharge of the crime thriller, Sharma had discussed the likelihood of a sophomore season. "I have a story in mind that i might wish to work on, but it all depends [on how things pan out]," he had said.
