Saluting these women and their will to empower others along with themselves!

Churails is the first original web series from Zindagi and will start streaming on Zee 5 from August 11, 2020. A series that showcases women as heroes, helping each other up in tough times and fighting together as a team against their cheating husbands who are violent and abusive and egoistic. Much like the women in the show, there are women in real life who not only speak up against injustice but also help empower other women around them who fall prey to any kind of ill-treatment.

Here are some real-life examples:
