Prominent filmmaker Imtiaz Ali has made his digital debut with web-series ‘She’.
The show revolves around an undercover assignment to expose a drug ring, which becomes a timid Mumbai constable’s road to empowerment as she realises her dormant sexuality’s potential.
Talking about the series, Ali told IndiaToday, “She is about a female cop who becomes an undercover agent. She poses as a prostitute to aid the police investigate a certain criminal nexus. It is the journey of this woman as she goes through the experience of pretending to be a prostitute, how she deals with it and what happens to her and her sexuality. Through the series, we see many interesting and hidden aspects of society, of this city and of our own personalities.”
Asked about his inspiration for the show, he added, “I have met many lady constables. I met many prostitutes as well. I have also met women that are on different levels of this exploration. I have met a lot of women that have tried or are trying to get rid of the baggage of shame that they are suppressed by. She is such a journey.”
‘She’ stars Aaditi Pohankar, Vijay Varma and Vishwas Kini.
