Alankrita Shrivastava (Made in Heaven, Lipstick Under My Burkha) is the creator of the Netflix show and has co-directed alongside Bornila Chatterjee. Endemol Shine India (MOM – Mission on Mars, Aarya), Endeavor Content, and Chernin Entertainment (Ford v Ferrari, Planet of the Apes) are the producers.
"Bombay Begums is a story about Indian women that I hope women in India, and across the world will connect with. The series explores the complex journey of working Indian women who are ambitious for power and success, but have many other battles to fight too. It's the story of their daily hustle, the story of their dreams - sometimes buried, sometimes fulfilled. It's the story of glass ceilings shattered, and also of the hearts broken in the process. I have tried to create a world that reflects the realities of urban working women. I hope audiences relate to the characters and find pieces of their own journey reflected in the story," Shrivastava said in a statement."
