According to the official synopsis of the film from the makers, the film follows the story of Pallavi Patel, a quintessential, middle aged, devoted homemaker who earns a name for herself with her dancing and cooking skills. But when a rumour about her starts to spread, it threatens to disrupt her son’s engagement.
The family drama, directed by Anand Tiwari, will reportedly feature Madhuri in a ‘complex, nuanced and a fearless avatar’. Anand has written the film’s script along with Sumit Batheja. In a recent statement Aparna Purohit, head of India Originals, Prime Video, had said that the film would ‘beautifully portray’ Madhuri’s character and her strength and conviction.
