Monica Dogra, now famously known as ‘Peeplika’, the queer character she played in ALTBalaji’s ‘The Married Woman’, talked about Pride Month.
The show ‘The Married Woman’ itself rendered tremendous appreciation for its poignant storyline and impeccable execution. However, it was Peeplika, played by Monica, who the digital world fell in love with. The chemistry between Peeplika and Astha created such hype among fans that the makers even announced the second season of the show to kickstart this year’s Pride Month.
While talking about Pride Month, Monica said, “Firstly, I want to raise a toast to the entire LGBTQ community. For me, this community possesses pure magic, vibrancy, swagger. I want to say I am deeply grateful for the support I’ve received for playing a Queer character on screen. Being included and celebrated by the queer community feels like an honor and a privilege. I thank my lucky stars for being a part of such a show that exemplifies ‘love is love’. All I want to say is that no matter what your sexual orientation is, take Pride in yourself.”
Talking about the show, ‘The Married Woman’, based on Manju Kapur’s novel, ‘A Married Woman’, is a story set in the 90s about Astha and Peeplika. Ridhi Dogra and Monica Dogra, who played Astha and Peeplika in the show, will return to reprise their characters in the second season.
