The series narrates the story of a girl who is violently attacked and raped because of which she slips into in a semi-comatose state for the rest of her life.

“I am playing Sheetal, who is a nurse by profession. Her life took a tragic tragic turn after she was raped in the hospital, where she worked. She had spent the next four decades in a vegetative state after surviving a brutal sexual assault,” said Ihana.


“It’s a story of woman who has been brutally raped and manhandled and justice was always awaited,” added the “Hate Story 4” star.

Ihana has clarified that she doesn’t play Aruna Ramchandra Shanbaug, but the story is “somewhat inspired by it but it is not at all a biopic of sorts”.
