Sachin Tendulkar, Anil Kapoor's Twitter exchange makes Netflix announce season 2 of Selection Day
A Twitter conversation between Sachin Tendulkar, who mentored the leads of Selection Day, and Anil Kapoor, producer of the Netflix show, led to the announcement of season 2.
Netflix's Original series Selection Day, based on Booker Prize-winning author Arvind Adiga's novel of the same name, launched globally on 28 December, 2018. The show is a six-part series and tells the story of two brothers and their unequal, uneasy equation with cricket, their authoritarian father and finding their own identities.
The show received a mixed response from its viewers where some claimed it to have rapid and flat storytelling, others mentioned that series trumps over the book. Amidst all these reactions, the series definitely created a buzz, and would now return with a new season.
Netflix India took to twitter and announce season 2.

Twitter users were quick to share their thoughts on the new season. However, we could not help but notice the most surprising comment, from the God of Cricket Sachin Tendulkar.

Sachin was responded to by Bollywood actor and Selection Day producer Anil Kapoor, who hinted in typical fashion that the show will be ‘ekdum jhakaas’ (absolutely amazing).
