The series follows the chilling story of a serial killer, who kills women by giving them cyanide pills under the pretext of contraceptives after marrying them. The killer preys upon women, who can’t find a perfect match or who are under the pressure of dowry.
Talking about her role in the dark thriller, Sara says, “I play the character of Cyanide’s wife in the show named Aisha. Aisha is an independent woman living with her in-laws even after the death of her husband; with a 7-year-old son who means the world to her.”

There are various folds to the story as and when it proceeds and we are sure the audience will be hooked till the end.”
