Renowned filmmaker and actress Konkona Sen Sharma has been appreciated for many roles, and she will soon be directing a film revolving around Arati Das aka the Kolkata's Queen of Cabaret.

Talking about the same, Konkana said, "The whole era of post-partition and pre-liberalisation fascinated me. Since I am from Kolkata, I have been aware of the subject and her unique story. It's about the fascinating life of this female protagonist who decided to live life on her own terms, it's extremely interesting, and right up my alley. That is why I decided to make this series. We are in the process of finalising the cast. We are still developing the script and we plan to go on floors early next year. It is going to be an interesting journey."

Produced by Zee Studios, this web series will revolve around the life of Arati aka Miss Shefali and will also showcase the political environment giving us a glimpse of her journey in the 60s and 70s of West Bengal.
