Coolest Women driven web-series – About their Stories, their Complicated Relationships and Intricate Modern Marriages
We all know how romantic movies usually go – boy meets girl, they fall in love, they overcome problems, they get married and live happily ever after. However, in the real world, it’s never that easy. Modern world relationships and marriages are way more complicated but we hardly see any film or TV soap highlighting or portraying the actual complications the new age couple face, specially the woman / girl in the relationship. Now, the new age digital platforms have filled up that that gap efficiently and are depicting state of affairs of modern day relationship in its truest form.
