Wedding Season is a lively Netflix romcom that focuses on the Indian American community and the pressures of finding a spouse, which heavily impacts Asha (Pallavi Sharda) and Ravi (Suraj Sharma).
In a bid to get their parents off their backs, the mismatched pair pretend to date during the wedding season. However, they soon realize that their fake feelings towards each other have become genuine.
Talking to The List (opens in new tab), actress Pallavi revealed how important it was to her in portraying Asha.
She said: "I was initially drawn to the project by virtue of this script that was shown to me in which a South Asian woman was front and center and her journey was being explored with so much care and nuance.
"It was an opportunity to give voice to this dual identity that I have grappled with, that so many of my friends and my cousins, my uncles, my aunties have grappled with, [and] my nieces and nephews."
With fussy parents and prying eyes documenting every aspect of their faux relationship, let's take a look at the main players to look our for in Wedding Season...
