“This is a serious series. This is a mystery thriller. Most protagonists in Bengali films and web-series are journalists, doctors or works in advertising agencies. But we have a forensic surgeon here.
“Chitrangada and I went to the morgue to understand about the nuances of their work. It was like a workshop for us. I wanted to see how the forensic surgeons behaved after going to home from work. It was a great experience shooting the web-series” said Mukherjee.
The 8 episode series has been produced by Fatfish Entertainment and is set to premier on 10 January 2020.
