The trailer for the upcoming web series was recently released on the ALTBalaji YouTube channel.

Things take a turn for the worse when the society is declared to be an illegal structure and ordered by the court to be demolished, resulting in an eviction notice for the people residing there. The families living there enter into a battle against the authorities to save their homes.
Annu Kapoor and Supriya Pilgaonkar play parental roles in the series, with Amol Parashar playing the role of their son. Actor Parikshit Shahani will also be seen in a pivotal role in the show.
