Netflix’s next Indian original web-series, Bombay Begums, is due to be released on an appropriate date, 8 March, which is  International Women’s Day. The drama stars Pooja Bhatt, Shahana Goswami, Amruta Subhash, Plabita Borthakur and Aadhya Anand as five women overcoming adversity to follow their dreams.

The six-episode drama has been co-directed by Alankrita Shrivastava and Bornila Chatterjee and also stars Rahul Bose, Vivek Gomber and Danish Husain. Bombay Begums is being produced by Endemol Shine India, Endeavor Content and Chernin Entertainment.

Shrivastava, who has also created the series, 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 it. 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,” she added. “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. I am excited and proud that Bombay Begums is coming to Netflix on International Women’s Day.”

Shrivastava’s last film, Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakate Sitaare (2020), starring Konkona Sensharma and Bhumi Pednekar, was also premiered on Netflix.
