However, the lady is exploited everywhere, only to be dragged back to the murky world.

On the character he is playing in the episode, Tharani states, “I essay the role of Ajju, the pimp who is famous for his cruel and ruthless acts in the brothel.
Whenever Munmum tries to elope from the place, she is brought back to the same place by Ajju. It was a nice character to essay, and I enjoyed writing it too.”
