The story of Nalini is inspired by the romantic and platonic love story of Annapurna and Rabindranath Tagore in the late 1870s. He met Annapurna when he was staying with Dr. Atmaram Pandurang in Mumbai. Annapurna was 20 when Tagore was 17. She was an England returned affluent English woman who turned his tutor. While they fell in love, Annapurna’s father was against their liaison. Annapurna eventually married Scot Harold Littledale in 1880 and she settled in England.
Nalini also stars Soumitra Chatterjee, Victor Banerjee, Seema Deshmukh among others.
