Isha Talwar rose to fame when she featured as Madhuri Yadav on the series ‘Mirzapur’, which was headlined by Pankaj Tripathi. While the show got her love and acclaim, it did get her work, until she got a part in her latest Disney Plus Hotstar series ‘Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo’.

In an interview with Indian Express, when asked how her life changed post ‘Mirzapur’, Isha said, “I sat at home for a year after Mirzapur, until I could get ‘Saas Bahu aur Flamingo’. It took me ten years to get ‘Mirzapur’ and then I had to really find… It happened, it took a while. Like I said I sat at home for a year until this show happened, so you wait patiently. I have not worked since November. I am now waiting for this show to be released.”

Directed by Homi Adajania, ‘Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo’ stars Dimple Kapadia as Savitri, who runs a drug cartel, and she is supported by her equally fierce daughters-in-law and daughter, played by Radhika Madan, Angira Dhar and Isha.

For ‘Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo’, Isha did a test for the role as Homi insisted. “I wanted to be a part of the show the moment I saw the presentation that came to me. I had stopped auditioning after ‘Mirzapur’. So, I texted Homi if he could watch some scenes from ‘Mirzapur’ because I didn’t want to audition as I had auditioned with him 8 years ago. He said no, we do need an audition. I then tested for it and instinctively wanted to be a part of it when I saw the material,” she said, adding, “I didn’t want to audition after Mirzapur because I have been auditioning for ten years, every casting director has about 500 tapes of mine so I think I have done my bit of auditioning.”

Also starring Naseeruddin Shah, Ashish Verma, Varun Mitra, Udit Arora, Deepak Dobriyal, Monica Dogra and Jimit Trived, the show will stream on Disney Plus Hotstar from May 5.
