Dolly Kitty Aur Woh Chamakte Sitare (2020) director Alankrita Shrivastava’s next, Bombay Begums, drops on Netflix in March. The web series features Pooja Bhatt, Shahana Goswami, Amruta Subhash, Plabita Borthakur and Rahul Bose. Though it is set in Mumbai, the director hopes it resonates with all women. Bhatt makes her digital debut with the series.

Ambition, desire, struggle for power and vulnerability – common threads that run through the lives of five modern Indian women living in Mumbai, the city of dreams. Follow them as they steer their lives through obstacles in their careers and relationships, all while trying to break free from the shackles of society. Will they succumb to everything that stands in their way or will they build a bond strong enough to help them shatter barriers together and take charge? To get the answer, watch Netflix’s upcoming series – Bombay Begums – about the five ambitious boss women played by Pooja Bhatt, Shahana Goswami Amruta Subhash, Plabita Borthakur and Aadhya Anand along with Rahul Bose, Vivek Gomber and Danish Husain amongst others.

Talking about the series, Creator and Director Alankrita Shrivastava said, “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. I am excited and proud that Bombay Begums is coming on Netflix on the occasion of International Women’s Day.” Get ready to watch the begums from Bombay rise on International Women’s Day i.e. March 8, 2021 exclusively on Netflix.
