Monica Dogra: “The married woman was a role I had to come back to”

Monica Dogra will play one of the main characters, Peeplika on ALTBalaji and ZEE5’s much-discussed show ‘The Married Woman’. The show was valued by audiences, fraternity and critics alike for its brilliant narration, amazing performances and music.

Monica feels lucky to be returning to the acting room with a powerful role like Peeplika, who she thinks is a pretty multi-faceted character. “Peeplika is an innovation of the self that arises when one has no filter and often no fear, and I don’t think I am. I wish I was But I certainly have elements of her in me in many ways. There were moments during the shoot when I felt like I was crazy about the way art imitates life, ”says Monica.

“I came 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 I needed to be to come back. I can’t tell you how interesting, nuanced, and complex storytelling is. It was very intense to say the least, ”she adds.

This web show wonderfully incorporates the urban relational drama about women and the way society has influenced 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. ‘The Married Woman’ will premiere on March 8th, 2021 on ALTBalaji and ZEE5!
