Tanya Bami: We are developing second season of the series

While Raveena Tandon-led Aranyak drops online today, the team at Netflix India has begun work on its second edition. Some might argue that it’s too soon to count your chickens, but Tanya Bami, series head, Netflix India, says the idea was to develop it as a multi-season series, from the beginning. “We are actively developing the second season of Aranyak. When we [explore] an idea, we look for the potential to turn it into a franchise. We [keep] the writers’ room running even [when the show is in] production. Once you understand the characters, it’s good to keep that momentum going,” she reasons.

Set in the dense forest of the Himalayas, Tandon’s debut OTT venture sees her as a harried local cop who teams up with her replacement Angad — essayed by Parambrata Chatterjee — to solve a big-ticket murder case of a teenage tourist. Bami says it’s encouraging to see an increasing number of stories being led by women. “Female-forward narrative is important to us. We had Bombay Begums, Masaba Masaba, and Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives. We know how versatile Raveena is. [Through her arc], we’ll show how women have to keep several balls in the air — be it managing home, work and relationships. Such messages come forward in a female-led narrative and give the story an edge.”
