About Maharani (Season 1) Web Series:

Maharani is a Hindi political drama web series created by Subhash Kapoor and directed by Karan Sharma with Huma Qureshi portraying the title character along with Sohum Shah, Amit Sial, Kani Kusruti, and Inaamulhaq.

Sohum Shah gained 12 kg to get a look of the politician Bheema, which has been modelled on the basis of Lalu Prasad Yadav.

In November 2020, some portions were shot in Kachnariya Kothi, Bhopal.

In April 2021, the shooting for a web series was also done in the Legislative Assembly (LA) Jammu complex of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir state and Govt. Gandhi Memorial Science College, Jammu. Around 250 local artists from the theatre and cultural department in Jammu and Kashmir were brought in for the web series. Some drone shots of J.P. Setu and Buddha Smriti Park were also shown in the web series. The shooting of Maharani was completed in seven months.

The first season premiered on SonyLIV on 28 May 2021.


After the release of first trailer on 9 May 2021, the Yadav community protested over a dialogue in the web series and filed FIR. The makers of web series later apologized and removed that dialogue from the web series.
