R Madhavan and Surveen Chawla in Decoupled

Marriage is staying together under the same roof for the sake of a child, says a parent to the couple Madhavan and Surveen Chawla in the upcoming Netflix show, Decoupled. It might be a common scenario in India but will Madhavan's Arya and Surveen's Shruti break free as they fall out of love? 

The upcoming drama Decoupled is a comedy series filled with chucklesome and toe-tickling sarcastic banter. The bickering between the two also gives you a few chuckles as in the trailer. The makers dropped the official trailer of their upcoming series that revolves around Arya and Shruti who have been through all - friends to life partners. The trailer opens with the couple at a shrink's office asking if anyone would be interested in listening to a couple, who are out of love, talking about marriage and the shrink responds: 'Everyone'. It follows the journey of the two as they try to sort out their lives thereafter.

Watch the trailer here:

Madhavan plays the role of a sarcastic, outspoken pulp fiction writer Arya while Surveen plays the role of his wife, a calm, composed corporate suit CEO Shruti. They decide to call it quits on their marriage but as they navigate their lives further, it leads to a laughter riot. The trailer promises that. So, should they decouple or not? 

In a press statement, R Madhavan talked about his character. "I play the character of ‘Arya’, a pulp-fiction writer who suffers from a rather uncompromised sense of objectivity and clarity, along with a determination to not compromise (ever!) - which is hilarious especially when pitted against his calm and composed wife Shruti, played by Surveen," he said adding that he is thrilled to collaborate with Netflix and grateful to Hardik Mehta and Manu Joseph for bringing this character and story to life. Speaking about his co-star, he said, "Surveen was a delight to work with through and through and I hope the chemistry and humour we share on-screen leaves audiences laughing uncontrollably."

The show marks Surveen's return to the OTT platform after Sacred Games. She said working on the show was a refreshing experience. "Decoupled hilariously sheds light on a modern couple trying to work through the nuances of marriage while trying to keep their sanity intact. Madhavan is playing my husband Arya’s character with utmost ease and his comic timing is spot on!" she said in her statement. 

Produced by Bombay Fables and Andolan, created and written by Manu Joseph, Decouple is executive produced by Sejal Shah, Vikramaditya Motwane, Bhavesh Mandalia and Gaurav Shukla, along with Hardik Mehta and Manu Joseph. The dramedy will be streaming on Netflix from December 17.
