Paoli’s succession war saga Karm Yuddh was dropped on Disney+ Hotstar on September 30. Directed by Ravi Adhikari, the series also features Ashutosh Rana, Satish Kaushik, Pranay Pachauri, Chandan Roy Sanyal, and others. The actress plays the character of Indrani Roy, one of the contenders for the throne of a wealthy Roy family. The series has garnered positive reviews so far. 

Bengali actress Paoli started her Bollywood outings with Hate Story. The actress worked on several national OTT projects, including Kaali and Raat Baaki Hai. In Bulbbul, her character Binodini was well received. Talking about her national projects, she said, “I am glad that makers are considering me for such important characters. I feel my work in the Bengali industry is being noticed. Karm Yuddh is a huge saga and I hope that I will get many such meaty characters in the future. My journey is still on.” 

Paoli further added that her journey was not an easy one. “There is competition but it has always been a healthy competition,” she said. The actress started with traditional films but it is because of the OTTs, her exposure got bigger and better. “Now people want to watch content from different regions. OTT is giving more opportunities for pan-Indian artistes. OTT is also making spaces for stories from different regions,” she said.  

Paoli is known to be a selective actress. “I have a bucket list of directors I want to work with. I also want to work on many other platforms. But I know for sure that I do not want to pursue one particular type of character. I want variation,” she told us. 

Karm Yuddh was shot during the pandemic in Goa, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Dehradun.
