So excited to be announcing my entry into the digital space! After the success of my first @NetflixIndia film production '15th August' and doing the voice of 'Nisha' from Mowgli, here's looking forward to another stellar show!— Madhuri Dixit Nene (@MadhuriDixit) December 9, 2019
The series will be a suspenseful family drama, written by New York-based writer-director Sri Rao, reflecting on the lives lead by people in the entertainment industry.
