It is supposed to be a story that brings to light the hidden culture of the red light area in Lahore, focusing on the lives of the women who survive in these areas and what their lives are like.

“Each of the female protagonists will have a well-defined long running role with room for the character growth”, says one of the sources.Reports state that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Madhuri Dixit Nene, Deepika Padukone, Parineeti Chopra, Manisha Koirala and Vidya Balan might also be a part of the series.
