Angrezi Medium director Homi Adjania's next is all set to be a Hotstar Specials series, titled Saas Bahu Aur Cocaine. The series is going to be about a bunch of feisty women who run a drug cartel from their backyard, even as the men of their family live and work out of town. It is going to be produced by Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films.
When asked Homi about the same, he told a news agency in an interview, "I wanted to make a story about a bunch of women, who are living in a downtrodden family and they are so more evolved than anything around them. Even the men in the family, who are working abroad, don't know what they are doing as they would only visit during Holi and Diwali... The women are running a small embroidery business but it is actually a front for their cocaine business which is the biggest in the entire South Asia. They are living in crumbling haveli in Kutch and they have everything at their disposal as they have a loads of cash. The series is going to be funny, gritty and extremely bold".
Given the bold subject of the series, Homi said he is glad there isn't any censorship on the web. "I have always had creative liberties in my movies but then I had to lock horns with censors. Just because there is no censorship on the net, I don't think that is the reason to go nuts. It is completely pointless. If it is relevant to the narrative, then sure use it, exploit it."

The director said he has a wish-list of actors for the project and it includes his Angrezi Medium actor Radhika Madan. "My wish-list would be Tabu and Radhika Apte as they are actors with good calibre. I want to use Madan again, she is a treasure."
