Dinesh Vijan, Founder, Maddock Films, told, "Saas, Bahu aur Flamingo is a fiery, crazy and genre-defining take on the age-old saas-bahu saga. I think this is Homi's best work yet. His original take on the material is what makes it unique. With Dimple Kapadia in a never seen before avatar, a strong ensemble of performers, and enough twists and turns to keep you on the edge, this a truly binge-worthy show."
Dimple Kapadia shared, “Saas Bahu Aur Flamingo is a story of what makes ordinary people extraordinary in a world full of passion and chaos. It’s a bunch of badass women telling a narrative that is often played only by male characters and believe me, it’s got some of the most colorful characters you’ll ever see. The show is as wild as my crazy Director, Homi Adajania’s mind. He has flipped a family drama on its head giving us such a captivating binge-watch that’ll be coming on Disney+ Hotstar.''
Director and Creator Homi Adajania added, “You remember the line “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”? When the world has scorned these women and turned its back on them, they learn to thrive by creating their own system of morality in a bold and lawless place that they inhabit. Women are the evolved half of our messed up species and Saas Bahu aur Flamingo is to date the maddest world that I have created. Its characters are so beautifully complex and conflicting, navigating their way through a world of passion, manipulation and chaos. You’re going to have to switch on Disney-Hotstar, buckle up tight and be ready for the roller coaster of your life.”
