Saas, Bahu Aur Flamingo
Dimple Kapadia, Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar, and Isha Talwar play the key characters in the series. The series is directed by Homi Adajania. The show is marketed as a fresh take on the saas-bahu drama sub-genre, which typically examines the power dynamics between stoic, merciless in-law moms and timid in-law daughters. Instead, an “unapologetically hardcore” mother-in-law and “steadfast and formidable” younger women will be featured in “Saas, Bahu Aur Flamingo”.

Even though the majority of the series is devoted to revealing Queen Charlotte’s past, it frequently returns to the present-day clique, bringing back Golda Rosheuvel to play the older version. Arsema Thomas (Redeeming Love), Michelle Fairley (Game of Thrones), and Sam Clemment (Cherry) also appear in the series as young Lady Agatha Danbury, Princess Augusta, and young Brimsley, respectively.
