The actor revealed that the show is coming back for a season 2, "Actually, the lockdown started soon after we finished the first season, and things came to a halt. Writing and story lineup for the second season is already underway. Official planning will be done after the lockdown is lifted. But yes, it's on."
Jitendra is currently gearing up for the release of Chaman Bahaar with Netflix. Talking about the film he revealed, "It is a one-sided love story of a paan shop owner. The story is about a young man who runs a paan shop but does not get good business. Suddenly a beautiful girl shifts in the locality with her family, and he falls for her at the first sight. Soon, young men start flocking to his paan shop to catch a glimpse of the girl who lives opposite the shop. As a result, he starts getting good business. But now also he isn't happy because he doesn't like all these men looking at her and talking about the girl he admires! Only, he looks at the girl from a distance but can never gather the courage to talk to her."

Jitendra Kumar is seen playing the character of a small town guy once again in Chaman Bahaar. When asked what drove him to the character he said, "This is something that we get to see often, especially in small towns. If you have a crush on someone in school, you cannot talk to that person. This is such a common thing and yet we don't get to see such a thing on the screen a lot. So, I thought the idea was fresh."
