Anagram Film plans second season of its India-based show

Sweden’s Anagram Film is planning a second season of its India-based show, The Most Beautiful Hands of Delhi. 

The first season was shot earlier this year in Dehli, India, and will air on Sweden’s SVT in early January 2017. The story is about a fifty-year-old Swedish cultural journalist, Goran (Björn Kjellman), who, while visiting India, befriends a local man, Yogi (Joy Sengupta) and his family.

Author Mikael Bergstand has written a series of three bestselling books about the adventures of Goran and Yogi. The first book is about Goran meeting Yogi and his mother, and his attraction to a married woman.

The first season was shot as three hour-long episodes and was directed by Hannes Holm (A Man Called Ove), who also co-wrote the season. While it is not confirmed if he’ll return for season two, it is currently the plan depending on his other projects.

The second season won’t be shot in Delhi as it needs countryside vistas and tea farms instead of a city location. The second season is set to shoot later in 2017.

The show is primarily in the English language.
