Actor Kanchan Mullick features in the series as her ‘one and only husband’ while Sourav Chatterjee, Ujan Chatterjee, Suhotra Mukhopadhyay, Debopriyo Mukherjee, Apratim Chatterjee and Jammy Banerjee are among her admirers.

In the web-series, Mou’s usual liaisons with her admirers is disrupted one night when she gets hold of a lottery ticket for Rs1.5 crore and accidentally kills the holder in her desire to keep the ticket for herself.

“The phone hasn’t stopped ringing since the poster dropped on Hoichoi, which is an indication how excited everyone is for Mouchaak,” said the actress.

"I am excited about my web debut on Hoichoi. Mouchaak is a dark comedy filled with a heavy dose of entertainment and I hope everyone is going to love it,” she added.

“It was a lot of fun creating the character of Mou, and it reflects in the trailer," she said. "The kind of response Mouchaak has got so early on is incomprehensible. We wanted to bring forth an entertainment-loaded show with a twist, and I am confident audiences are going to enjoy it.”

Mouchaak will be streamed on Hoichoi from 18 June.
