One of the most intriguing characters revealed in the trailer is that of Shefali Shah.
Shefali Shah has performed multiple roles, showcasing varying shades of human character. In her own words, she mentions that her character of Gauri Nath in Human is the most complex one that she has played till date. Shefali shares, “Gauri Nath is a Pandora’s box. You don’t know what hits you at each moment. She’s complicated, unpredictable and indecipherable. Not only is ‘She’ unlike anyone I’ve played before, I don’t know nor have heard of anyone like her!”
It's definitely going to be a treat to watch Shefali in the role of Dr. Gauri Nath in Human! A pharma giant is using India’s lax clinical trial rules to fast track the development of a new drug, despite lethal side effects. Meanwhile, 35-year-old Dr. Saira Sabharwal lands a dream job in Bhopal’s premier hospital under the mentorship of the iconic 45-year-old Dr. Gauri Nath. Saira grows under Gauri’s tutelage and as the two women start to form a deep bond over their commitment to the medical cause. However, a shocking discovery throws their life into chaos as their story becomes intertwined with that of a young migrant worker, Mangu (20 years), who is all set to wreak havoc on the medical system.
The fictional series enunciates the collateral damage due to fast tracked drug trials for financial gains in a gripping tale that involves innocent lives lost to greed. Touching compelling themes like the value of human life, medical malpractice, class divide and ramifications of a fast-paced medical science, Human brings forth the greed to make money in a compelling tale of power struggles, secretive pasts, trauma and murders.
