New Delhi: Prime Video today dropped the trailer of the upcoming Amazon Original, Hush Hush. Filled with mysteries, suspense and drama, the Hush Hush trailer gives a glimpse into the life of four friends – a powerful lobbyist Ishi Sangamitra (Juhi Chawla), an ex-investigative journalist Saiba Tyagi (Soha Ali Khan), a self-made fashion designer Zaira Shaikh (Shahana Goswami) and a trapped-in-society Dolly Dalal (Kritika Kamra), who find themselves hurtling down a rabbit hole of lies, deceit and secrets after their privileged world turns dark and dangerous. Their lives turn upside down when an intelligent cop Geeta (Karishma Tanna) sets out to unravel the mystery that also involves Ishi’s childhood friend Meera (Ayesha Jhulka).
The 7-episode series is helmed by acclaimed director Tanuja Chandra, who also double-hats as the Executive producer.
