The Zee Theatre teleplay additional reveals how this one fleeting second adjustments the lives of protagonists, Sadanand and Meera, ceaselessly and binds them to one another.
Well-known theatre, cinema and tv actress Aditi Sharma says, “This is the story of two ordinary people with whom something extraordinary happens. I play Meera, a happy-go-lucky air-hostess who is forcibly kissed by Sadanand (played by Zeeshan Ayyub) at Janpath, in full public view. Meera is a small-town girl who is traumatised not just by the incident, but what she is subsequently goes through during the police interrogation. Her own family blames her for chasing her ambitions in a big city like Delhi. To complicate matters even more, there is political pressure upon her to pretend that nothing inappropriate happened to her.”
