Swara Bhasker plays Beanie Bhatnagar who finds herself engaged without realizing it. Her parents have posted the selfie and the party is on. But Bhatnagar has other dreams. Like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel where a toe-the-line-ing Jewish wife finds freedom on stage, or Maanvi Gagroo playing a reticent Gujarati character Siddhi who finds her voice as a comic in Four More Shots Please! so does Beanie Bhatnagar. What is it about stand-up that feels like therapy for people who are stuck in life?
