As Amazon Prime Video’s latest offering Paatal Lok continues amassing overwhelming response from various quarters, the makers have already started working on a second season of the neo-noir webseries.
Produced by Anushka Sharma under her production house Clean Slate Films, Paatal Lok premiered today on 15th May, 2020. From critics and viewers, everyone has praised the series alike, with some even calling it Amazon Prime Video’s answer to Netflix’s Sacred Games.
During an interaction with a publication, Jaideep Ahlawat, who plays the lead role of Inspector Hathi Ram Chaudhary in Paatal Lok, revealed that creator Sudip Sharma might be in the process of scripting a second season of the series. “Of course, there is a possibility. As far as I know, the hint that I have gotten is that Sudip sir is already working on it. I hope it happens and I would love to take the story forward,” said the talented actor.
He went on to add, “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 Hathi Ram again. His involvement has just started. Hathi Ram has just entered the game. We feel that he will finally start now. Now, things are in his favour.”
Paatal Lok revolves around a down and out cop Hathi Ram Chaudhary who has been tasked to investigate the assassination attempt of a prime-time journalist. When four suspects of the crime are nabbed, the case turns out to be a devious maze where nothing is what it looks like. What happens next forms the crux of the story.
