The show will replace 'Meri Bhabhi', which the channel is wrapping up within nine months of the launch. Produced by Cinevistaas, the new show will be aired Monday to Saturday at 8 pm.

Set in the eastern megapolis of Kolkata, 'Ek Hasina Thi' is the story of a woman, Durga (played by Sanjeeda Sheikh), seeking justice for a crime committed in the past. However, Durga's fight is not easy as she faces the extremely powerful and influential Goenka family - the main antagonists and the target of her actions. Durga's methods of claiming justice are unconventional as she steps out of the shackles of traditionalism and uses her mind to conquer might, thereby becoming an active agent of change.

Gaurav Banerjee, general manager, Star Plus says, "Durga is a very exciting character. Through her, we are celebrating the Empowered Woman - she is primarily a nurturer but if wronged, instead of suffering silently she will fight for justice. We believe our viewers will enjoy the lavish scale of the show, the beautiful outdoors of Kolkata and performances of the ensemble cast."

Siddharth Malhotra, creative producer, Cinevistaas, adds, "We are excited to present Ek Hasina Thi, a show we have been developing over three years. Our vision for the show was to elevate it to a completely film-like experience. Therefore we haven't compromised on anything. Right from the way the characters are presented to the overall treatment, action, sound, locations and sequences, every aspect has been given a larger than life feel. We have had an amazing relationship with Star Plus and are happy to have collaborated once again for Ek Hasina Thi."
