Monica Dogra: The Married Woman was a role that I needed to come back

Monica Dogra will be seen portraying one of the central characters, Peeplika in ALTBalaji and ZEE5’s much-talked-about show, ‘The Married Woman’. The show has been appreciated by the audience, fraternity and critics alike for it’s brilliant narrative, stupendous performances and music.

Monica feels fortunate to return to the acting space once again with a powerful role like Peeplika, which she feels is quite a layered character. “Peeplika is an innovation of self that happens when you have no filter and often no fear, and I don’t think I am that. I wish I was. But certainly, I have elements of her in me in so many ways. There were moments during the shooting when I felt like it’s crazy of how art imitates life,” informs Monica.

“I have come after a long hiatus of not being seen as an actor and I think sometimes the divine has a plan and now I understand what the plan was and this was the role that I needed to come back. I can’t tell you how interesting, nuanced and complex the storytelling is. It was intense to say the least,” she adds.

This web show beautifully entails the urban relationship drama about women and the way the society has affected their conditioning. The show features Monica Dogra and Ridhi Dogra including Imaad Shah, Ayesha Raza, Rahul Vohra, Divya Seth Shah, Nadira Babbar, and Suhaas Ahuja among others.

‘The Married Woman’ will premiere on ALTBalaji and ZEE5 on March 8, 2021!
