Asim Abbasi’s second project after ‘Cake’, a web series releasing on Zindagi Channel, ‘Churail’s‘ trailer came out today and everyone’s talking about it; trending on Twitter all day, Churail seems to be showing strong female leads fighting against patriarchy in the society.
The trailer has exceeded people’s expectations and seems to be job well done. Content that blows your mind away, Churail seems to be much awaited by both Indian and Pakistani audiences, now more than ever, after the release of the trailer.
Churail’s trailer narrates the story of four females, proclaiming themselves as Churails who have come togethers, forming a detective agency, to spy and expose their cheating husbands amongst the elite of the city.
Showcasing strong minded, independent women, they seem to be saving other female victims of abuse, harassment and mistreatment at the hands of their husbands.
Churails focuses on four women hailing from different professions and backgrounds -one is a lawyer, another a wedding planner, a boxer and ex-convict, who come together for the same goal.
The 10-episode series, comprising of 55-minute episodes, will be premiering on August 11 and can be binge watched since all 10 episodes will be releasing together.
The web series aims to challenge the hypocrisy deeply rooted in patriarchal society that ignores rights of women. The plot also shed light on social issues like sexism, child abuse, classism and others.
Watch the official trailer below:

Is this content about so-called feminism, liberalism or they are showing women who wear burqa have any purpose to wear it???
Or then they are giving idea that one can also wear burqa for secret purposes.
Nonetheless, I did not get the point of showing veil here. #Churails pic.twitter.com/mUyrqWJZlr
