The web series, Made in Heaven, one of India’s early originals, streamed in 2019 on Amazon Prime Video and produced by Excel Entertainment and Tiger Baby Films. The three have now joined hands for the much-awaited Made in Heaven Season 2, whose release on August 10, was announced at an event on August 1 at Mumbai’s Grand Hyatt.

The show, which received huge endorsement then, is created by Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti and Alankrita Shrivastava.

The trailer of the new season was released on the occasion and the cast and crew introduced: directors Zoya, Reema, Alankrita, Neeraj Ghaywan and Nitya Mehra, producers Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar (absent) and Zoya and Reema again, and the star-cast led by Sobhita Dhulipala, Arjun Mathur, Jim Sarbh, Kalki Koechlin, Shashank Arora, Shivani Raghuvanshi, Mona Singh and Trinetra Haldar.

Pulkit Samrat plays a key role, while Neelam Kothari, Sanjay Kapoor, Samir Soni, Dia Mirza, Radhika Apte, Mrunal Thakur, Shibani Dandekar and Sarah Jane Dias will be among those making cameos in the new season.

The new season, promised the anchor and all on stage, is bigger, better, grander and more in-depth in all ways in its examination of what is termed “The Big Fat Indian Wedding”.

The sole remark of substance in the one-hour-plus ceremony on stage came from Reema Kagti, on what took the team so long for the next season to arrive. Said Reema, “This was combination of two things: one, we took time on the writing, because season 1 went off so well and we wanted to up the level, and two, Covid.” Added Ritesh, “A lot of time went into the research, so that a lot of what we saw in Season 1 was what was happening in society around that time, and they researched what was going on since for Season 2 to make it equally relatable and authentic.”

As is the norm with all the Prime Video events, the show was full of lavish praises by the platform’s team on themselves, including their success and variety in 2023 (Jubilee, Dahaad and more) and on the team and cast, which also reciprocated the hype and hoopla about each other in no mean proportion! Now all this is fair, given the fact that such events are meant to promote a show.

But what is not acceptable is that the media is made a mute spectator of the Q & A’s, decided by the platform and their folk, and asked by the anchor. After the showcasing, photo-ops were presented and the event ended with lunch.

Now this was truly difficult to digest!
