A new series Bombay Begums is all set to be out on March 8, 2021, on the occasion of international women’s day. Created and directed by Alankrita Shrivastava, Netflix series Bombay Begums is the story of five Indian-urban women from Mumbai, who are connected with each other by ambition, desire, the struggle for power, and vulnerability.

Bombay Begums is all about the journey of five women who fight the societal norms while taking care of the obstacles that come from their careers and relationships.

Produced by Endemol Shine India, Endeavor Content, and Chernin Entertainment, the show stars Pooja Bhatt, Shahana Goswami, Plabita Borthakur, Amruta Subhash, Aadhya Anand, Rahul Bose, Vivek Gomber, Danish Husain, and Nauheed Cyrusi.

In her statement, filmmaker Alankrita Shrivastava revealed that the story revolves around the complex and struggling journey of working Indian women, who are ambitious for power and success and but have to fight many obstacles on their way as they desperately want to reach their goals. “It’s the story of their daily hustle, the story of their dreams – sometimes buried, sometimes fulfilled,” Shrivastava said.  She further said, “Bombay Begums is a story about Indian women, but I hope women from all over the world connect with the story.”

Shrivastava also said that she tried to reflect the reality of urban working women. “It’s the story of glass ceilings shattered, and also of the hearts broken in the process,” she added.

Shrivastava is best known for her films Lipstick Under My Burkha and Dolly Kitty Aur Vo Chamakate Sitaare, and she hopes that the audience will be touched by this series as they can find pieces of their own journey and relate to the stories of these women.
