The 52-year-old star will be making her web debut with Karan Johar's family drama on Netflix. While the show is yet to go on floors, Madhuri has reportedly signed her second outing. According to a leading daily's report, she will be headlining Ship of Theseus director Anand Gandhi's web series titled Saheli.

The source further told that the Disney+ Hotstar web show was slated to go on floors in July, but due to the Coronavirus lockdown, the schedule will be revised. "After zeroing in on Madhuri for the lead role, the team had only begun the principal casting when the lockdown was announced and will resume pending pre-production work when the restrictions are relaxed," the source said.
