Monica Dogra, who made her mark with her Bollywood debut film Dhobi Ghat in 2011, is now gearing up for the release of her upcoming web series, The Married Woman. It is an urban relationship drama showcasing the conditions levied on a woman by society. It is about women and the choices they make. And Monica is really happy to be a part of such a meaningful project after featuring in a couple of films such as David (2013) and Teraa Surroor (2016) after her Bollywood debut.
"I’m very grateful to have come across such a meaningful project where I play Peeplika, a pansexual artist activist who is passionate about liberating herself and everyone around her from false societal pressures based on divisive religion or politics. I resonate with these themes very deeply," Monica Dogra said.
The web series is based on Manju Kapur's book of the same name. It also stars Ridhi Dogra in the lead role. The trailer of the show delves into the characters of Astha (Ridhi Dogra) and Peeplika (Monica Dogra). Set in the nineties, the story revolves around Astha, a dutiful wife and a doting mother, who sets out on a journey of self-discovery after she meets an unconventional artist, Peeplika.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, The Married Woman also stars Imaad Shah, Ayesha Raza, Rahul Vohra, Divya Seth Shah, Nadira Babbar and Suhaas Ahuja in key roles. It will stream on ALT Balaji and Zee5 from March 8.
