The trailer gives us ample idea about what we are going to see in this Marathi web series – there is suspense, betrayal, fear and a whole lot of thrills.
In the trailer, a person introducing himself as the Chairman of Bank of Singapore (Mr. Himanshu) approaches Saie with an offer that somehow she can’t reject. It is a role in his dream movie which is going to be directed by him. But unknown to her, he wants to give his film a realistic touch and installs secret cameras in her house.
By the time Saie realises what is happening, things begin to get really twisted. Thus, Saie’s struggle to get rid of this dangerous situation begins.
What makes Date With Saie different?
We hear and know about stalking, be it through news reports or personal experiences. But, what we don’t realise is the fact that how this can lead to the destruction of someone’s life and privacy.

Dnyanesh Zoting’s Marathi web series revolves around this whole scenario in a spine-chilling fashion.
Apart from the intense premise, here are some more reasons to watch Date With Saie:
