Baai revolves around the story of Manzu(Gandhi), a young gay man who shares a deep bond with his grandmother. The episode touched upon themes such as acceptance and family. The episode was directed by Hansal Mehta.

In a statement, Mehta had said that his episode was supposed to be an ‘ode’ to a kind of love that is free of the ‘burden of labels’ and does not bow down to the ‘pressures’ of conformity. In addition to Gandhi and Brar, the episode also featured Tanuja in a pivotal role.

The anthology series consisted of six episodes, helmed by Mehta, Shonali Bose, Vishal Bhardwaj, Alankrita Shrivastava, Dhruv Sehgal and Nupur Asthana.
