Modern Love Hyderabad: Prime Videos anthology paints various shades of love in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: 'Modern Love' is one of the most-watched and loved web series on Amazon Prime Video. The very first Modern Love series comprised stories of different couples from New York. It was so popular that a second season was released. The stories are based on the New York Times' famous weekly column. Inspired by 'Moden Love', 'Modern Love Hyderabad' brings six beautiful stories by four prolific creative minds – directors Nagesh Kukunoor, Venkatesh Maha, Uday Gurrala, and Devika Bahudhanam.

The series will stream on Prime Video from 8 July. The teaser was unveiled by the OTT giant recently.

The showrunner and one of the directors, Nagesh Kukunoor, said, "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 that 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."

The web series includes six heartwarming stories that paint various shades and emotions of love through the eyes of Hyderabad, the 'City of Pearls'.
