Disney+ Hotstar recently announced its upcoming show Saas, Bahu Aur Flamingo, a story that redefines everything you thought you knew about the saas-bahu relationship. A mother-in-law who is unapologetically hardcore, and daughters-in-law who are steadfast and formidable – these women are nothing but badass, powerful, and even ruthless by choice. The first glance of Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo has left a trail of chatter across! Homi Adajania shares his thoughts on smashing patriarchy and how he did not let action sequences or uncomfortable language define the badassery of the characters.
“Dimple Kapadia cracked her finger in the first take” – says Saas, Bahu Aur Flamingo director Homi Adajania
Elaborating further on this, Homi Adajania added, “The women in my show are beyond male suppression and the sexist nature of society at large. Their characters are fearless spartans. No one would dare to confront them on any turf. They are not shackled by the power play of any patriarchy and have understood the system and know how to manipulate it. The great part about this ensemble was that they have the exact same energy and zeal in them.”
Furthermore, talking about the action sequences in the series, “During a few action sequences in the show, Dimple Kapadia cracked her finger in the first take and yet continued to punch a door with her broken finger for four more takes. Radhika Madan flew off a 30-foot high structure and dangled in the air on her harness – she wasn’t fazed at all and just climbed back up and continued all guns blazing. Isha Talwar had squibs burst in her face, went to the hospital and returned to fight again. I realised then I had a bunch of unstoppable females and that I’m not over-shooting the gravity of the narrative.”
Produced by Maddock Films, the series is directed by the uber-talented Homi Adajania and stars Dimple Kapadia, Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar and Isha Talwar in pivotal roles along with a talented cast, Ashish Verma, Varun Mitra, Udit Arora, Deepak Dobriyal and Monica Dogra amongst others. Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo releases on 5th May 2023 only on Disney+ Hotstar.
