The cliffhanger ending of the first season of Ishaa Saha and Suhatra Mukhopadhya’s Indu has clearly indicated the beginning of a second season. The maker Sahana Dutta, her associates and Hoichoi are gearing up to start the shooting of the second season by the end of this year. Meanwhile, according to reports, the series will be made in Hindi too. As per sources, talks are on between the Indu makers and Disney+ Hotstar.

Earlier, several Bengali serials were made for national Television. Leena Gangopadhyay’s Sreemoyee has been made into Anupamaa. Her Khorkuto also got a Hindi makeover, Kabhi Kabhie Ittefaq Sey. In fact, as per sources, Raj Chakrabarty will do a remake of his Parineeta for Disney+ Hotstar. However, this will be the first time a Bengali web series will be made in Hindi.

Directed by Sayantan Ghosal, the series delves into the life of a newly married Indu, played by Ishaa. Soon before and after she gets married a series of mysterious events start to occur. She learns about the hidden truth about her in-laws. She gets to know that her husband’s brother, Sujato (Suhorta), was once married but his wife, Laboni (Manali Dey) was thrown out of the house. She also learns about one of their specially abled cousins, who keeps on advising her to run away from her in-laws’ house. The first season ends when she gets to know that Laboni is murdered. Sujato bestows the responsibility of finding the killer on Indu.

As per Anandabazar Patrika, the maker of the series Sahana and the producers, SVF, will be integrally associated with the project. The cast of the Hindi series is yet unknown. There is a possibility to see minor changes in the script to make it more relevant to the national audience.
