breaks the glass ceiling and every prejudice that society has created against women.
She who is strong, she who is fierce, she stands for what she believes in… she is a
‘CHURAIL’. The show aims to challenge the hypocrisy of patriarchal societies that
vanquish women and their rights.

Churails narrates the story of four self-proclaimed Churails who come together to
open a covert detective agency to expose cheating husbands amongst the city’s
elite. As their operations expand, they come to be saviours of abused, harassed and
mistreated women. The gripping and fast-paced storyline covers myriad issues such
aschild abuse, sexism, domination of class and race.

Director AsimAbbasisays “Zindagi’s commitment to truly original content that has a
voice and can transcend borders, has provided me with the perfect platform to create
a show like Churails. A story about strong women, embarking on a journey of self-
discovery, empowerment and sisterhood, I believe Churails is a timely show with
pertinent themes that will resonate with audiences globally.”

Zindagi, launched earlier in India had built a legacy of for itself for presenting stories
that are strong, powerful yet relatable. Now launched on ZEE5, the largest streaming
platform for South Asians across the globe, the brand’s first original series promises
to take this legacy forward. The show comes with a larger purpose of encouraging
dialogue on the stigmas associated with strong and empowered women.

“Shows on Zindagi have always been unconventional, real and impactful, I am
excited for the audiences’ reaction to the show. There is an increasing need for
women’s voices to be heard, and not stereotype fierce women for their strength, or
patronize them for their insecurities. Churails is bold, vulnerable and empowering all

at the same time.  We couldn’t be more proud of Churails being Zindagi’s first
original offering and streaming on a global platform like ZEE5”, signs off
