Talking about the second season, Anuja Joshi said, “Psychological thrillers are a genre that revolves around complex relationships between obsessive and pathological characters and the stranger continues to petrify Mini in Season 2 as well. Hello, Mini 1 received a lot of love from viewers, in fact – I’ve constantly been asked when the second edition would release and I am excited that it’s here now.”
