A fictionalized version of the lives of Indian fashion designer Masaba Gupta and her actress mum, Neena Gupta, ‘Masaba Masaba’ is a mockumentary that dropped on Netflix in August 2020. The story may be a scripted peek into the personal and professional journeys of the aforementioned stars but it gives us an entertaining insight into the world of fashion and showbiz. It, in fact, serves as a refreshing breather in these troubling times when we so terribly miss the entertainment industry. The first season of ‘Masaba Masaba’ features a short run and hence, those who started with it, finished binge-ing on it at one go. Now, viewers are wondering if the series has the scope to spawn another season. Let’s dive right into the details.
