All About Section 377 was one of the first web series to talk about the country’s discrimination against the LGBTQ community. That web series has won critical acclaim and even awards. Now, the second season of this web series is in the works.
Director Amit Khanna, who also acts in the series said that this will be the first web series to talk about LGBTQ in the rural areas. He said that the series will be based in Jatkhor. The first season has won the award for Best Film in foreign language and Best Cinematography at the Berlin International Film Maker Festival in 2017.
Speaking exclusively to TheDigitalHash, director Amit Khanna revealed all the differences that one would see between the first series and the second.
He said, “The first season was primarily shot inside a room. The second season will primarily be shot in the exteriors – and that too in a rural area. Earlier, the web series had 80 percent of interior scenes. In the second season, 80 percent of the scenes will be set in the exterior regions.”
He continued, “We had limited resources while shooting the first web series. Now, with bigger banners coming into the picture, the production values have seen a jump. All About Section 377 will be shot in 4K.”
When asked about the cast, he said, “We have roped in a famous TV actress for this web show. Also, this series will have a transgender character. Most of our actors are NSD passouts.”
All About Section 377 – Season 2 is produced by Anuya Chauhan Kudecha, Ritesh Kudecha, Dhaval Patel, Shyam Patel and Amit Khanna. Aditya Patel is the Associate Producer.
Currently the short film is under post production.
