The anticipation surrounding anything associated with Hansal Mehta is intense, especially since his collaboration with Pratik Gandhi on the stellar web series Scam 1992. Their partnership has become one of the most revered ones, having dominated the industry with their respective projects.

While not much has been revealed about the plot, a recent announcement adds another interesting actor to the mix.

Bhamini Oza has been cast to play Mahatma Gandhi’s wife, Kasturba Gandhi, in the show. Hansal Mehta, the show's creator, announced this through his Instagram handle, expressing excitement about working with the actor.

The two make for an adorable pair, with fans loving their real-life chemistry. 

Fans are in for a treat as the real-life couple plays the reel-life Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and Kasturba Gandhi. Sharing Bhamini Oza’s casting as Ba, Hansal Mehta wrote, “On the special occasion of Kasturba Gandhi’s birth anniversary, we are honoured to unveil the remarkable Bhamini Oza as she portrays the strength, grace, and resilience of ‘Ba’, a fighter both in life and politics.”

According to Bollywood Hungama, talking about playing Kasturba Gandhi in Gandhi, Bhamini Oza said, "Stepping into Kasturba Gandhi's shoes feels like a beautiful twist of fate in my acting journey. Working with Hansal Mehta and the Applause Entertainment team is a dream come true, especially alongside my husband Pratik. Since our early theatre days, we've dreamed of sharing screen space together, and now it's finally happening. My attempt is to bring honesty to the character and a genuine connection to the story.”
