Rana Daggubati and Venkatesh made their streaming debut with the much-hyped Rana Naidu on Netflix earlier this year. While the show received some diverse reactions from the audience, the second season has already been greenlit by the streamer. Speaking about the second season of the Ray Donovan adaptation, Venkatesh said, at a recent event in Hyderabad, that the second season won’t offend anyone.
The first season of Rana Naidu was disliked by some Telugu fans for its crude language. Venkatesh addressed it and said, “This time, I will be much more careful. I intend not to offend anyone this time. Last time, people from our region got affected, but, I assure you, this time it will be good. However, it will have a tinge of mischief.”
Venkatesh said that audiences from all over the world have been asking him about the second season of the Netflix show. “I am about to begin filming for Rana Naidu 2 from January 2024. Naga Naidu (Venkatesh’s character) is not a common man. People from across the world have been asking us to make the sequel of the web show. All the youngsters have watched it and are now demanding the second installment,” he said.
Rana Naidu had 10 episodes in its first season and was the official adaptation of the US series Ray Donovan. The second season of the Netflix show was announced shortly after the first season was released.
Alongside Rana Daggubati and Venkatesh, the series also starred Surveen Chawla, Sushant Singh, Abhishek Banerjee, Ashish Vidyarthi, among others.
