“Nothing at this point of time. There is a lockdown, we cannot even meet up. There are no writers in office, everyone has gone to their hometowns. Raj and DK are also not together right now. Let the world open. When the world opens, and once we get the green-lit, we will work on it. The story is with them, once it gets a go ahead, it will turn into a screenplay. If everything goes right, it will still take another one and a half year or more, for the third season to be ready,” he had said in an interview.
