ALTBalaji's urban relationship drama, The Married Woman is now the pride of the country. With its innovative storyline, fantastic acting, the amazing camera presence of the actors, and memorable dialogues, The Married Woman has secured its place as one of the top shows on over-the-top (OTT) platforms the world over. Accolades have poured in from fans and critics from every corner of the world, right after the premiere of the web series.
This series, adapted from 'Warrior with a pen' Manju Kapur's book titled A Married Woman, has received as much appreciation as the bestselling novel itself, if not more. The author herself was thrilled to have her book reproduced as a series and was extremely thrilled with the outcome, so were her fans, which is rare for avid readers proving that this series is one of a kind.
The numbers surrounding the show are unbelievable, for lack of a better word. With over 6 million viewers within the country, India and over a hundred thousand viewers spread out over four other major countries of the world including the United States of America, Canada, Pakistan, and Australia and not even taking into account the rest of the world, The Married Woman is a massive success. The US alone had over 67,000 viewers, over 22,000 viewers in Australia, over 21,000 viewers in Pakistan, and over 20,000 viewers in Canada.
A source from ALTBalaji said, "This humongous fan following is attributed to the audience being able to relate to the show and draw parallels even in today's scenario. Things like this are what makes a show great."
The Married Woman is still trending a month after its release on March 8, 2020, International Women's Day. The story of The Married Woman centres around two beautiful women, Astha Kapoor and Peeplika Khan. Astha is a beautiful person, but the full force of who she is is chained because of society's pressures, until she meets Aijaz and Peeplika, who give her an entirely different perspective on life.
Binge-watch the 11 episodes of The Married Woman for the splendid performances by Ridhi Dogra, Monica Dogra, Imaad Shah and Suhaas Ahuja, amongst others.
