Rangita Pritish Nandy on Four More Shots Please: May explore friendship, or just one character
Four More Shots Please show-runner Rangita Pritish Nandy on the course that the second edition may take after protagonists fall apart
"If you spot a crew hard at work at your favourite South Bombay spots, check-in to see if it's ours," chirps Rangita Pritish Nandy. The show-runner of Four More Shots Please seems cheerful as she discusses the second edition of the Sayani Gupta, Kirti Kulhari, Bani Judge and Maanvi Gagroo starrer, a day after the makers announced that they would return with the sprightly drama. "It continues to be about four young women, their evolving friendship, and their lives. Season one ended with their friendship being affected. Now, the question is if the show will be about their relationship, or will we simply follow the journey of one girl," she says, evasively.
Tackling with accusation of the series being inspired by Sex And The City (SATC), Nandy doesn't take to suggestions of "rectifying" similarities between them in season two, because, she says there are none. "Our show is also about four girls, but little else matches SATC. Yes, they dress pretty, share a few drinks and a wonderful friendship, all against the backdrop of a modern city life. But their struggles and flaws are entirely different. We have fans telling us how this show narrated their own story, and made the conversation around sex, female sexuality and fantasies, relatable."

Nandy is unwilling to discuss another campus series that is suggested to be under works. "We are developing a bunch of things, one among which is a young adult show. This new generation is a different beast. There is absolutely nothing [one can know] about them. They can tell you, at the age of nine, where they will be at 15, 21, 27 or 35. At 40, I'm still searching for myself."
