The director of Mumbai Diaries 26/11, Nikkhil Advani has confirmed that his hit drama series on Amazon Prime is gearing up for a season renewal. In a chat with India Today, he also confirmed that the most-loved character Chitra Das essayed by Konkona Sen Sharma will be elaborated in Season 2, which will be coming out soon.
The eight-part medical thriller has won many hearts, which is set in the backdrop of the 2008 Mumbai attacks. The series chronicles the personal crisis faced by doctors, nurses, and others in a hospital, during the attacks. Konkona’s character had left an intriguing impression along with Mohit Raina’s. As the fans yearn to explore her backstory, the director promises that she will make her way back in Season 2.
Further talking about the series, Nikkhil expressed his gratitude towards Konkona for agreeing to be a part of the series, as she thought the writing was 'sparkling'. The actress is eager to play her role once again if there is a season renewal, revealed the director. He concluded by saying that he is awaiting further proceedings, as the rest is up to the streaming giant Amazon Prime.
In an earlier interview, actress Konkona had opened up about Chitra, her character in the series. She described her as someone burdened with her emotional issues of the past and dealing with self-doubts, yet courageous. The same is evident in the show too, as we can see her as a victim of mental and physical abuse, which leads her to be underconfident.
The series marked Konkona’s web debut on Amazon Prime, who had previously played opposite Aditi Rao in a Netflix anthology Ajeeb Dastaans. As the director has given a thumbs up now, her fans are excited to see the brave woman back on the screen.
