In an interview, Pillai said “Like every other audition I got a call from this casting agency, telling me to audition for a web series but they didn’t mention which is the production house or anything. So I went for the audition and they said they will call me within a few days if I get selected. I didn’t really get a call like for the next 2 weeks or something but I was quite satisfied with the audition that I had given.” The second season of Kota Factory was released on 24th September. On 26 September 2021, Raghav Subbu confirmed that the third season is in the works.
