Produced by Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films, Saas, Bahu aur Flamingo is directed and created by Homi Adajania (Being Cyrus, Cocktail, Finding Fanny) and streams from May 5 on Disney+ Hotstar.

There is nothing more powerful than a woman at war, the series seems to say. Homi Adajania’s latest work takes this norm forward, introducing us to women who are badass, resilient and not afraid to own their choices. The new saas, bahus and beti embark upon a mission to protect what’s rightfully theirs!

The series revolves around a mother-in-law, daughter and two daughters-in-law. This high-octane, intense drama. Dimple Kapadia, a compulsory feature for Homi now, stars along with Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar and Isha Talwar in pivotal roles. The series also stars Naseerudin Shah, Ashish Verma, Varun Mitra, Udit Arora, Deepak Dobriyal and Monica Dogra among others.

Homi Adajania, director and creator, expresses his feelings: “Saas, Bahu aur Flamingo is not for the faint-hearted. As you immerse in this saas-bahu household many skeletons tumble out of closets and mayhem reigns when these inimitable characters fight for power and protect what’s rightfully theirs. You would have to have a death-wish if you confronted the women in the show on any turf!”

Dimple Kapadia, playing the character of Savitri, adds, “I’ll admit that Savitri’s family is dysfunctional at best, as they draw daggers to be one up on each other. But if anyone from outside threatens their existence, it could very likely be the last mistake that person makes. I did enjoy the action sequences—while I have done action in some of my films, this was unapologetic and raw! The ferocity and drama will be very engaging for the audience. I suggest you buckle up for this roller coaster.”

The series revolves around four inimitable women, the matriarch Savitri, her daughters-in-law, Bijli and Kajal, and her daughter Shanta, who live in Hastipur – a forgotten village in the north-west. Savitri runs a company named Rani Cooperative, trading in products ranging from herbal balms to textiles. But everything isn’t what it seems. Turns out this cottage business is just a front for the biggest drug cartel being run in South Asia1

Homi, a master of dark comedy, as Being Cyrus and Finding Fanny have shown beyond doubt, makes his ambitious web debut with his favorite producer, Dinesh Vijan.
