Monica Dogra: No Matter What Your Sexual Orientation Is, Take Pride In Yourself
It is Pride month! The month where we celebrate different orientations and individuality. Monica Dogra recently played a queer character in ALTBalaji's The Married Woman. The show received many laurels for its poignant storyline and striking execution. However, it was Peeplika, the character played by Monica, who many fell in love with. The chemistry between Peeplika and Astha was appreciated so much so 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, and 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."

However, the series ended on a cliffhanger when Astha gets to know about Peeplika's past, making her dubious of her relationship.
