“The compelling story and spectacular performances will keep the audience intrigued. I’m really excited to share the epic content with the diverse audience of Netflix,” the director said in a statement.
Subbu, along with Shreyansh Pandey, are attached as the showrunners on “Kota Factory” season two.

“We are excited to bring back the favourite characters, Vaibhav, Uday, Shivangi, Meena and Jeetu Bhaiyya in the second season of ‘Kota Factory’ on Netflix. Just like the previous season, this season too is rich with authenticity and relatability of college life, the choices and struggles of the youth not just in Kota, but everywhere in the country too,” Bami added.
