The Netflix original is directed by Sonam Nair and produced by Ashvini Yardi. The entire team of Masaba Masaba is driven by women from its writers, acting leads and the director and producer.
What’s Masaba Masaba About?
Masaba Masaba 2 is going to build on the real experiences of women in society. From careers, ambitions to life’s challenges, it’s based on the life of two powerful women and their ability to deal with everything that is thrown at them.
It Will Focus A Lot On The Mother-Daughter Relationship?
As we saw in the first season, the second season too will reflect on the relationship dynamics between a mother -daughter. In the first season Masaba undergoes the divorce, and the pressures of it when it becomes the talk of the town. She also is shown as a startup owner going through her ups and downs with investors.
Important Issues in the Forefront
The show has established that it want to jostle the society’s mindset and question the status quo. In season one as well, it talked of dating, marriage, divorce, and so on. An example given by Ashvini Yardi was how the show will even shed light on the problems faced by single women in finding a house to stay in. And it is by bringing these issues to the forefront, the show makers aims to start a conversation around them. These are important conversations that most shows leave behind in their quest to ‘entertain.’
On Women, Made By Women
The show stars two women as their main leads. Masaba Masaba 2 is both produced and directed by women. Mother daughter duo Masaba Gupta and Neena Gupta have shared how the crew largely consisted of women. For them it brought some comfort on the sets as well.
What makes it a popular show is that it relates with the women of today and the pressures they face everyday from life, society, family, motherhood, singlehood, relationships with outsiders and all of that.
