The actress plays Vaidehi, a pop sensation and the lead vocalist of a band called Euthanasia, while Saswata Chatterjee has been cast as senior police officer Somnath Maitra.
According to the story, Somnath had lost her daughter Mitil five years ago, and now wants to connect with her through Vaidehi and the band. He requests Vaidehi to sing one of his daughter’s songs. She promises Somnath to end a concert with the song but falls back on her word. What happens next, forms the plot of the thriller.
Tridha was last seen in director Kamaleshwar Mukherjee’s 2016 romantic thriller Khawto. She had earlier appeared in Kaushik Ganguly’s 2014 film Khaad.
