ALTBalaji & ZEE5 Announce ‘A Married Woman’, a Story of Forbidden Love
Based on Manju Kapur’s book, Married Woman, ALTBalaji and ZEE5 bring you an unconventional love story, A Married Woman which beautifully captures the philosophy behind a love story that rose over time of political unrest in 1992 which finally has been corrected by a Supreme Court verdict after 27 years. It is a story of two beautiful souls that come together beyond societal bounds and portrayed by Ridhi Dogra and Monica Dogra in the lead roles.
The show also marks the digital debut for both the actresses is a story of Aastha and Peeplika, played by Ridhi and Monica respectively. Aastha is a middle-class Delhi girl, a teacher by profession and a painter by passion. She is the perfect daughter, mother, and wife whose life decisions are always taken by others; until she meets Peeplika, whose personality is completely the opposite, an artist who’s never been interested in anything the least bit conventional.
On her digital debut, Ridhi Dogra said, “I feel really honored to be the part of a story which is so relevant. It’s not just a story about two women and same-sex relationship, it’s much more than that. As an artist, I really didn’t have any inhibition. I was sure if anyone must make such show it should be coming from Ekta because she is truly a boss babe. I think this is a huge opportunity for me, great space and I am so glad that I waited so long for this one.”
On bagging the character of Peeplika, Monica Dogra quipped, “I am super excited about this project as it’s my debut in the webspace. I would like to thank ALTBalaji for believing in me to portray this character. I could not have asked for anything better than this for my digital debut. I have been known as a musician and for having played a few roles on the big screen, but this project gives me an opportunity to showcase my acting skills to the fullest. Apart from a talented crew, I will be sharing screen space with Ridhi who an established actor is already, with a huge fan following. I am really excited to work with her. I hope the audience will like us both in the show.”
