Nandini is a docile meek girl, played by Mumtaz Sorcar who is on quite a high after the tremendous success of her latest venture, Bhooter Bhobishyot. Nandini is a victim of circumstances. On the other hand, Jaya Seal Ghosh plays the character of a strong independent woman who has had to endure many things in life which have contributed to her lookout of life itself, she is tough and does not trust people at all.
The cast of the film is vibrant and pretty star-studded featuring actors like Rajatava Dutta, Sabyasachi Chakraborty, Angshuman, Kanchan and newcomers Mrinal and Debadrita Chatterjee.
