After the resounding success of her Netflix release 'Bhakshak,' Sai Tamhankar is set to entertain audiences once again with the much-anticipated 'Dabba Cartel.' The series, slated to release on Netflix later this year, not only marks Sai's second collaboration with Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment but also features a stellar ensemble cast, including the legendary Shabana Azmi, Jyotika, Shalini Pandey, Nimisha Sajayan, Anjali Anand, Gajraj Rao, Jisshu Sengupta, and others.

The recently unveiled first look of 'Dabba Cartel' during Netflix Day has already set a gritty and intense mood, leaving the audience eagerly anticipating the release.

Sai expressed her excitement about working with such a talented ensemble. She particularly spoke about Shabana Azmi, remarking on the veteran actress's observant nature and fantastic sense of humour. "Shabana ji is very observant. She will make you extremely comfortable and has got a great sense of humour. When she acts, you want to just feel like looking at the monitor," Sai shared.

The camaraderie among the cast members appears to be a highlight of the production. Sai further shared her enthusiasm for collaborating with actors like Nimisha Sajayan and Gajraj Rao, emphasizing her joy at finally getting the chance to work with the latter. “Gajraj sir and I have been trying to work since many years and when I got to know about him being on board for ‘Dabba Cartel’, I just jumped with joy. He's a fabulous actor, and it was great working with him. I can't wait for ‘Dabba Cartel’ to come out. It's going to be crazy and amazing!” she exclaimed.

Sai also took a moment to reflect on her ongoing association with Excel Entertainment. Describing the production house as “extremely professional, disciplined,” she praised the seamless coordination and control exercised by the team, irrespective of the shooting location. “It was a pleasant experience working with them, and I would love to work with them again. This year, my close association with Excel has added a silver lining to my career because it is one of the biggest production houses and I look forward to all the projects that have been shot with them and I can’t wait for them to come out. Naturally, it has become one of my favourite production houses.”

Besides her Netflix ventures, Sai is currently basking in the success of her Marathi film, 'Sridevi Prasanna’.
