The trailer just shows us a glimpse of power-hungry Saif Ali Khan and Dimple Kapadia’s face-off that we will witness in the series, which will premiere on Prime Video on January 15. The story revolves around Samar Pratap Singh (Saif Ali Khan), who will do anything in his power to become the Prime Minister after his father Devki Nandan’s (played by Tigmanshu Dhulia) death.
However, he gets tough competition from his mother Anuradha (Dimple Kapadia). The trailer starts Prime Minister Devki Nandan discussing with his friend (Kumud Mishra) why he feels his son will put an end to democracy if he comes to power and calling his son a “dictator.” In the following scenes, Samar Pratap Singh and Anuradha can be seen getting ready for the game of power.
