The first season of the show starring Ridhi Dogra and Monica Dogra is currently streaming on AltBalaji and Zee5
AltBalaji-backed show The Married Woman was appreciated among the audience for its story and the terrific chemistry between the pivotal characters Peeplika (Monica Dogra) and Astha (Ridhi Dogra). After the warm response to the show, the makers have now announced the second season of The Married Woman which will commence this June, also the Pride Month.
Speaking of Pride month, Monica said in a statement, “Firstly, I want to raise a toast to the entire LGBTQ community. For me, this community possesses pure magic, vibrancy, swagger. I want to say I am deeply grateful for the support I've received for playing a queer character on screen. Being included and celebrated by the queer community feels like an honour and a privilege. I thank my lucky stars for being a part of such a show that exemplifies 'love is love'. All I want to say is that no matter what your sexual orientation is, take Pride in yourself.”
As per an announcement from AltBalaji, Ridhi Dogra and Monica Dogra will reprise their characters Astha and Peeplika in the second season as well. Based on Manju Kapur's novel (A Married Woman), The Married Woman is set in the 90s and talks about relationships and the journey of two opposites Astha and Peeplika. While Astha is a dedicated housewife and a mother, Peeplika is a free-spirited artist. The first instalment of the series ended on a cliffhanger when Astha gets to know about Peeplika's past, which makes her uncertain about their relationship.
The Married Woman S1, which also features Suhaas Ahuja and Imaad Shah, can be streamed on AltBalaji and Zee5.
