Once, Homi called me at 7 am and said, 'I don't care if everyone on the set hates you. Give me the most intense character possible. Do whatever you need to get there.' I guess that's what has come alive on screen, the convincing viciousness of Kapil."

The series also stars Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar, Deepak Dobriyal, Monica Dogra and Naseerudin Shah in prominent roles. The show is out on Disney+ Hotstar.

Talking about the show, director and creator Homi Adajania said in a statement, "You remember the line 'Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned'? When the world has scorned these women and turned its back on them, they learn to thrive by creating their own system of morality in a bold and lawless place that they inhabit. Women are the evolved half of our messed up species and 'Saas, Bahu aur Flamingo' is to date the maddest world that I have created."

He further mentioned: "Its characters are so beautifully complex and conflicting, navigating their way through a world of passion, manipulation and chaos. You're going to have to switch on Disney-Hotstar, buckle up tight and be ready for the roller coaster of your life."
