What is Bombay Begums About?

Bombay Begums’ storyline follows five women from different parts of society trying to get ahead in modern Mumbai, formerly called Bombay. The show deals with various issues faced by women, including menstruation, menopause, sexual harassment, fertility issues, and infidelity.

The show earlier ran into controversy after India’s National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) demanded a ban on the show for normalizing minors indulging in casual sex and drug abuse and objected to a scene showing minors having cocaine.
