Actress-filmmaker Konkona Sen Sharma will trace the life of Arati Das, popularly known as the Queen of Cabaret in Kolkata, in next directorial project.

Konkona will be helming a web show based on the life of Arati, better known as Miss Shefali. The series will chronicle her life, as well as the political environment of West Bengal in the 60s and 70s through its narrative of her life's journey.

"The whole era of post-partition and pre-liberalisation fascinated me. Since I am from Kolkata, I have been aware of the subject and her unique story. It's about the fascinating life of this female protagonist who decided to live life on her own terms. It's extremely interesting and right up my alley. That is why I decided to make this series," Konkona said. 

"We are in the process of finalising the cast. We are still developing the script and we plan to go on floors early next year. It is going to be an interesting journey," she added about the show produced by Zee Studios.
