The teaser of the series was released today. In the one-minute video teaser, a huge crowd can be seen waving political flags, as Saif, who plays a politician, waves to the crowd. “Hindustan ko sirf ek hi cheez chalati hai, rajneeti. Iss desh mein jo Pradhan Mantri hai wohi raja hai (India is run by only one thing, which is politics. In this country the person who is the Prime Minister is the king),” says a voice in the background while Saif makes an impressive entry.

As you watch the show, you’ll realize that there is no right or wrong, there is no black or white; world of power is about the world of greys.
