Ravindra Gautam, director of Huma Qureshi starrer `Maharani` season 2 spoke to mid-day.com about taking over the series and his favourite scenes!
What was the experience of taking over the series like?
I have directed the second season, first season was directed by someone else and I am happy I could help the creators take the second season a notch higher. It was a fabulous journey as seldom you get to direct such brilliant writing. It was a challenge to give justice to such an in-depth political drama and gazing at the season’s stupendous success I think I chipped in my bit.
Your thoughts about Huma`s character`s progression?
As for Huma, the way she snuggled into the character is remarkable. She was good in the first season but in season two she is outstanding. The way she portrays the maturity as a politician, pain as a wife and responsibility as a mother is admirable.
Is there one scene that you are proud of?
It will be difficult to point out one scene as a favourite but yes the last two episodes of season two are my favourite as they were the most challenging because of a total shift in the genre and we all were quite anxious about the viewers’ response, which was finally quite overwhelming. Looking at the trend, Season 3 is impatiently awaited by the audience so think the makers have little choice.
