Dimple Kapadia is back with a powerful part in her debut web series, Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo, after playing a major role in Shah Rukh Khan's Pathaan. In this amusing thriller, she appears to play the saas (mother-in-law) alongside Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar, and Isha Talwar.
Maddock Films' production banner released the show's preview on Instagram with the description, “Chetaavani: Yeh kamajor dil vaalon ke liye nahin hai! Kripaya na dekhein. Kyun? Kyunki…”
Saas Bahu aur Flamingo Teaser Out
The teaser begins with the title song from the hit TV show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, and it displays glimpses of the lead characters' pleasant lives, full of hope and glimpses of women's empowerment. But then there's violence and drama as Kapadia pulls a gun on someone, Madan gets into a brutal brawl, and a lot more goes wrong. Watch the teaser here. The show will be available on Disney Plus Hotstar beginning May 5.
It's being marketed as a fresh take on saas-bahu drama, with an "unapologetically hardcore" mother-in-law and "steadfast and formidable" younger women. Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo, Dimple Kapadia's OTT debut, is a story about what makes ordinary people remarkable in a world full of passion and turbulence, she stated. She went on to say that it's a group of badass women telling a story that is frequently played only by male characters, and believe me, it has some of the most colorful characters viewers will ever see. She added that the show is as wacky as her "crazy director's mind,", Homi Adajania, who has spun a family drama on its head, giving us such a gripping binge-watch that'll be coming on Disney Hotstar.
In this show, director Homi Adajania has built the "maddest world." He claimed that women are the evolved half of our messed-up species and that Saas Bahu aur Flamingo is the most insane universe he has ever devised. Its characters are beautifully complicated and conflicted, navigating their way through a world of desire, manipulation, and chaos.
