“Set against the backdrop of the golden era of 70’s Bollywood with great music, the series revolves around the lives of struggling film director Shankar (Tahir), diva Aamna (Amala Paul) and Shankar’s wife Anju (Amrita). A complicated triangle where the fledgling maverick film director finds a soulmate in the yesteryear A-list Bollywood actress, leaving his wife stunned and him torn between two worlds.”
While there is no official confirmation, ‘Ranjish Hi Sahi’ is rumoured to be loosely based on the filmmaker’s relationship with 70s superstar, Parveen Babi.
Shankar develops a relationship with Aamna while working on a film that throws his marriage into unsteady waters as he deals with the fallout of his actions.
