The Married Woman: Alt Balaji and Zee5 are soon bringing up an amazing story based on the LGBTQ category. Laws regarding this have recently been issued and it is legal now in India. Just after the law was passed a few movies were made explaining that 'Love is Love.' A Married Woman is a web series made for Ekta Kapoor’s OTT platform Alt Balaji. The shooting of this web series is still going on and Ridhi Dogra and Monica Dogra will be seen playing the lead roles in it. It will be releasing on 8th March 2021.
The series focuses on lesbianism, a topic which is still debated among the Indian audience. With the abolishment of section 377 of IPC, there has been several movies and television series regarding the topic of homosexuality, which definitely is the need of the hour. But most of these shows have been limited to sexual desires and lust. This time we are hoping it to be more about Love.
'A Married Woman' is a romantic-drama show. This web series is based on popular book author Manju Kapur’s book ‘A Married Woman’. The story revolves around the middle-class woman Aastha who is living in Delhi. She has children and a loving husband but even after this, she gets into an unconventional relationship with a younger woman. The story is set against the backdrop of Babri Masjid demolition in 1992.
Recently, its trailer has been released by Zee5 with yet again a new and way too promising poster. ALT Balaji took the trailer to its Instagram handle and wrote, "Beyond conditioning comes individuality. Beyond faith comes spirituality, Beyond sexuality comes a connection, Witness Astha's journey to find herself as she BLURS all the boundaries set by society to find the intense connection and LOVE she never knew she longed for. Based on the acclaimed book by Manju Kapur, #TheMarriedWoman streaming 8th March on #ALTBalaji"
