Surveen Chawla plays the role of Naina Naidu, Rana's wife, is a character with secrets and a strong will that commands attention. She is expected to play a role with intricate complexities. Speaking about working on the show, Surveen Chawla said “Playing Naina in Rana Naidu was an incredibly empowering experience. I loved how she was written as a strong, independent woman who was not afraid to speak her mind. I would say the character of Naina Naidu is the most intense role that I’ve essayed so far.  It was challenging to bring out the various layers of her character, but I enjoyed every moment of it. As women, we need more characters like Naina."

Priya Banerjee, who portrays the role of Mandira, is another strong-headed woman in the show who has been through a lot and is determined to get what she wants. Mandira and Rana's chemistry is intriguing, and the two work together incredibly well, making them an essential part of the show's dynamic. Adding to this, Priya too spoke about her role saying, "Mandira is a woman who knows what she wants and will stop at nothing to get it. I loved playing this badass character who held her ground and was unapologetically herself. It was exciting to bring out her vulnerabilities and show her softer side.”

She went on to add, “Working with the talented cast and crew on Rana Naidu was an unforgettable experience, and I am proud to have been a part of this show. Mandira is ambitious - although it might not come off as that in the beginning. Her head is in the right place and she's willing to cross whatever line she has to to get where she needs to."

Rana Naidu follows the life of a man who does the dirty work for the city's top power players, making the problems of the rich and famous disappear. However, Rana's life takes an unexpected turn when his father Naga Naidu (played by Venkatesh) is released from prison, setting off a chain of events that shakes the Naidu family to its core. The women of Rana Naidu too are expected to feature in powerful and impactful roles as the men. The web show will premiere on Netflix on March 10.
