Mid Day reports that the short documentary will be released online on March 8 on the occasion of International Women’s Day. The report reads, “It deals with the issue of wilful exploitation of young newcomers in showbiz or any other field where they don’t have mentors or guidance.” Explaining further if it will talk of a true episode, she simply said: “It is a new format where reality meets fiction.”
