"The story takes a turn when Purnendu Banerjee aka Joker joins as an accountant and develops an extramarital relationship with Bibi. Moti Mondal, the cunning MLA, gets desperate to bring in his own close ally to earn a higher percentage from tenders and slowly attempts to rule out Saheb from the game of power. The party also considers Saheb a burden when the environmental authorities issue a notice against his illegal forest land lease. The opposition party leader, Digambar, observes this tricky situation and plays his trump card at the right time against Saheb," says director Arindam Sil, who adds that the series explores politics of economy and sexuality. The series will stream on the upcoming OTT platform of Camellia Productions.
