Directed and written by Jolly LLB fame Subhash Kapoor, the movie is a political drama featuring Chadha, Kaul, Shukla, Akshay Oberoi and Shubhrajyoti in pivotal roles.

My toughest part yet: Chadha on 'Madam Chief Minister'
Chadha had said last year, "Happy to announce that our labor of love Madam Chief Minister has been announced. My toughest part yet, grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with particularly witty Subhash sir and with the splendid cast Manav, Akshay Oberoi and Saurabh Shukla."
Chadha was recently seen in 'Shakeela'
Chadha, who last year starred in director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's sports film Panga alongside Kangana Ranaut, was recently seen in the story of an adult film star, Shakeela. However, the movie has received mostly poor reviews. In the past, Chadha has delivered some notable performances in movies such as Fukrey, Gangs of Wasseypur, Masaan, Section 375, among others.
