“I have been watching a show called Maharani on SonyLIV and it has me gripped. Huma Qureshi plays this illiterate housewife who then goes on to become the CM.

Continuing further, she added: “The way that they have used little details, I kept noticing how in the beginning, even her ghoonghat completely covers her and as the show progresses, it keeps slipping a little behind until it is just about covering her bun. To me, these little touches add a sort of realism as well as they show me a journey. It is an engaging story and Huma is just fabulous as the Maharani. For me, this was completely a must-watch!”
Twinkle also appreciated the show in the caption of the video. She wrote, “Totally worth the binge! An engaging story about ambition and power with great performances especially by @iamhumaq You go girl!”
