When contact Ashu Dhaliwal, who is co-producing the series with Mohini Shabade and Akshy Mishra under their banner Mighty Grace Media, confirmed the buzz and shared, “Shyam Benegal’s cult movie Mandi and our series are based on a similar subject, as both narrates the story of a brothel. But our web-series has a twist. We thought and brainstormed with channel also and decided to change the name. We feel #Mandi is a bit more massy as well as classy.”
#Mandi will showcase the journey of a girl who is in search of her sexuality and wants to explore her sexual boundaries.
For those uninitiated, Akshy and Ashu had co-produced Ullu App’s Charmsukh. Also, Mohini has co-produced ‘Chak De‘ fame Sagarika Ghatge‘s upcoming Marathi film Monsoon Football.
