When Amazon Prime Video first brought the American romantic comedy anthology series Modern Love to television in 2019, it knocked it out of the park. The anthology series was renewed for a second season following the season's huge success. Modern Love is based on the weekly column published by The New York Times and starred actors such as Anne Hathaway, Kit Harrington, Dev Patel, Tina Fey, Tobias Menezies, and Andrew Scott, among many others. 

According to a recent Midday report, the OTT giant has been working on the Indian adaptation of Modern Love for the past two years. The show is set to be adapted between India's gullies, with directors including Vishal Bhardwaj, Hansal Mehta, Alankrita Shrivastava, Anjali Menon, Shonali Bose, and Dhruv Sehgal reportedly on board.

A source confirmed the development to the portal and said, "The anthology series, over its two seasons, has explored love in all its complicated and beautiful forms. The Indian adaptation will be in a similar vein, telling everyday stories about relationships, tugging at your heartstrings with their honesty and simplicity. The stories have been developed by the six directors with their team of writers, and then vetted by Amazon’s writers’ room. Much like the original format, each of the actors will be fronting a segment in the anthology."

So far, actors Fatima Sana Shaikh, Wamiqa Gabbi, and Pratik Gandhi have joined the cast and have begun filming their segments. 

"Pratik and Wamiqa are known faces in OTT entertainment, thanks to their strong performances in Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story and Grahan," the source added. Fatima, likewise, is no stranger to anthologies, having been a part of Ajeeb Daastaans. The Indian adaptation of Modern Love began filming in late 2021, with the OTT giant hoping to release it this year. 

"In November, the filmmakers began filming their segments. The show will enter post-production by next month, with the platform hoping to release it later this year," the source added.
