Kukunoor said in a prepared statement: ““We are delighted to partner with Amazon Prime Video for a prestigious international franchise like Modern Love which has touched the hearts of fans and audiences across the world. Unlike New York and Mumbai, which are megapolises, the charm of Modern Love Hyderabad lies in the fact that it is a city which has witnessed rapid modernisation in the last decade or so, while keeping in touch with its multi-cultural roots. This made for an excellent study in how the true cultural essence and social fabric of the city could feature in these stories of modern love,”
Elahe Hiptoola, who previously collaborated with Kukunoor for films such as the English-language drama Hyderabad Blues and the sports drama Iqbal, serves as the producer on Modern Love Hyderabad.
Modern Love Hyderabad is the second Indian adaptation of Modern Love after the Hindi version Modern Love Mumbai, which debuted May 13 on Amazon Prime Video. It is set to be followed by the Tamil-language Modern Love Chennai.
All six episodes of Modern Love Hyderabad are out July 8 on Amazon Prime Video worldwide.
