Sources close to Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar say that the producers are getting a lot of requests for the second season of Inside Edge. Both the producers are happy with the response that Inside Edge is getting and the way the audience has appreciated it. The show, which started streaming online from July 10 on Amazon Prime, was instantly lapped up by viewers. In fact, word is that there’s a demand for another season.
The source adds that Ritesh and Farhan were among the first film producers to join hands with a digital content provider to host a web series after they sensed a paradigm shift in viewership. Ritesh says, “I’m thrilled with the response to Inside Edge. It was challenging for us and Karan Anshuman (writer-director) to create content in a different format for a global audience. I’m glad that it has been accepted and we’ve been asked to do a second season. We’re currently in the pre-production stage of three more shows. We hope they too will pique audience’s curiosity.”
There are also reports that some of the cast will be part of season two. A source close to Richa Chadha says that the actress will be seen in the second season of the show. Richa’s association with Excel Entertainment goes a long way. She has worked with them in projects like Fukrey, Fukrey Returns.
