Society normally puts students from Science stream on a pedestal, but I personally believe that all professions have a lot of gut & glory in it, we just don’t know about it. A CA’s signature is considered most significant. With this show, we aim to entertain, inspire, and shed light on the journey of becoming a CA in a light-hearted yet meaningful way.”

From hustling her way in this unapologetically ambitious world to climbing the ladder of becoming a CA, the highly competitive environment strikes a competitive connection with students who are preparing for competitive exams. Moreover, the series gives a unique perspective into the lives of students as well as the joys and hardships they confront as they navigate adulthood while dealing with family and peer pressure. Can’t wait for audiences to be a part of this journey on 21st July on Amazon miniTV.” remarked actor Ahsaas Channa.
Echoing Ahsaas’ viewpoint, Actor Prit Kamani further added, “Revolving around the lives of CA aspirants and their challenges, the story is a personal one, since my brother is a CA. Coming from a commerce background, I have seen what a nerve-wracking experience it is to prepare for one of the world’s toughest professional exam. My character in the show is a homage to my college life, a friendly appearance that brings music and colour and an opportunity to be a part of the amazing universe of TVF and Amazon miniTV. I believe every student will find something that will strike the right chord. In a way we are all students, always. I can’t wait for everyone to watch it.”
