Tigmanshu Dhulia will be directing a web series that will retell the story of the dacoit turned politician Phoolan Devi. The titular role will be played by Tannishtha Chatterjee. Earlier, a film on the same concept was made by Ketan Mehta, and starred Seema Biswas. That film only told about the atrocities that Phoolan went through as a lower caste woman in a feudal, patriarchal India. However, this series will talk about her life as a bandit as well as about her political career. The series will have two mini seasons, comprising of 5 episodes each.
