Co-written by Farjad Nabi, the anthology is set in the timeless lanes of ‘Androon Sheher’ – a mythical neighbourhood. Each story from the anthology depicts the fearlessness of women and their determination to avenge the dece.
“With the dominance of a male-centric gaze especially in the noir genre, I was keen to explore a new interpretation, one which is told from the perspective of the much-maligned femme fatale (qatil haseena) characters.
It is an attempt to correct the sexism of film noir and try our hands at feminist noir.” says director Meenu Gaur.
Ms Shailja Kejriwal, Chief Content Officer – Special Projects, Zee Entertainment Enterprises adds: “Qatil Haseenaon Ke Naam challenges the stereotypical portrayal of women who are often perceived as victims.
Each story in the anthology showcases courageous, bold women who decide to take charge of things when their limits are pushed. These women are fatal to patriarchy and go several extra miles to seek what they want at any cost.”
The streaming date is to be announced further.
