A powerful original : A thriller show Churails
Though people and society talk about women empowerment, but are they really? Gender inequality is still deep rooted in every society; men still criticize women, doubt them and even try to change them. And when women can’t take this disgrace any longer, they break the glass ceiling and decides to take matter in their own hands. She needs to believe she is a “Churail” to set things right #mainchurailhoon. This forms the premise of the show CHURAILS.
