Netflix series ‘Bombay Begums’ is all set to premiere on 8 March 2021, which falls on the International Women’s Day.
‘Bombay Begums’ revolves around five modern women, connected as they are in their “ambition, desire, struggle for power and vulnerability”. It chronicles their story as they overcome obstacles in their careers and relationships, all while trying to break free from societal norms in their own ways.
The show features an ensemble cast which includes Pooja Bhatt, Shahana Goswami, Plabita Borthakur, Amruta Subhash, Aadhya Anand, and Rahul Bose among others.
The web series has been directed by Alankrita Shrivastava of ‘Made in Heaven’ fame.
Speaking about the upcoming series, she said in a statement:
“Bombay Begums is a story about Indian women that I hope women in India, and across the world will connect with. The series explores the complex journey of working Indian women who are ambitious for power and success, but have many other battles to fight too. It’s the story of their daily hustle, the story of their dreams – sometimes buried, sometimes fulfilled.
“It’s the story of glass ceilings shattered, and also of the hearts broken in the process. I have tried to create a world that reflects the realities of urban working women. I hope audiences relate to the characters and find pieces of their own journey reflected in the story.”
