The show was alleged to have similarities with real life
Vivek, who played the role of Vikrant Dhawan, the "angel in disguise" in the series, shared the news on his personal social media handle. He simply said, "Season 3, coming soon. #InsideEdge" The same poster was posted by Chadha and Gupta. Tellingly, netizens had speculated if Chadha's character was based on former actress Preity Zinta, who owns Punjab Kings. Zinta later quashed the claims.
The show has been unapologetic about portraying spot-fixing, doping, etc.
The acclaimed series is picturized around a cricket team called the Mumbai Mavericks and its owner Zarina Malik (Chadha). Heavily inspired by the glamor and scams seen in the real T-20 world, no one is what they look like in this drama. Fans have loved its unapologetic portrayal of spot-fixing, doping, and other illegal scandalous happenings. Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are the producers.
Season-2 had lost its 'edge,' will third installment cross boundary?
While its first season became the first Hindi show to release on Amazon Prime, the second installment failed to hold onto the hype. Bhaisaab (Bashir) showed his face in the second season, and Malik gained control. But following battles on and off the field, the season ended with a cliffhanger, with Mumbai Mavericks staring at a ban. Let's see what is in store.
