Veteran artistes Apara Mehta and Rohini Hattangadi are all set to star together in the ShemarooMe Gujarati web-series Kshadyantra. The political thriller, which has been directed by Urvish Parikh, will be streamed from 24 June. 

Kshadyantra will see Mehta play Pannaben, a chief minister who has ruled for 15 years and has her eyes set on the prime minister's chair. However, her path is laden with obstacles. 

Speaking about the show and her character, Mehta said in a statement, “I am glad to be a part of a Kshadyantra. The twisted tale of this political thriller is as good as watching a movie and I am excited to finally be a part of a web-series. Pannaben’s character will surely get every viewer enticed and get hooked on the plot.” 

Sharing her thoughts about the show, Hattangadi said, “I am excited to be a part of Kshadyantra and also super happy that ShemarooMe decided to give this gem to the Gujarati film industry. I have played various roles in my career, but Vasantiben will be very close to my heart. Though we were working on a series, the scale was so big [that] it felt like working in a movie. I am sure my viewers will enjoy the show and live the moments with us.” 

The show also stars Vandana Pathak, Vishal Gandhi, Shrenu Parikh, Deepak Gheewala, Parikshitt Tamalia, Anuraag Prapanna and Feroz Bhagat.
