Netflix is continuing its trend of exploring Indian culture and practices through documentary series. After the hugely popular Indian Matchmaking, the streaming giant will now take a peek into India’s million-dollar wedding industry with The Big Day.
Scheduled to release on Valentine’s Day, the series follows six couples in the build up to their respective grand weddings. “Indian weddings are just meant to be mental”, says a person featured in the trailer. The series also aims to talk about the pressures that come attached with the big fat Indian wedding. An Indian bride is expected to be beautiful, graceful, shy and delicate, quips one of the brides on the show, while another frets about having white hair on her wedding day.
The Big Day will stream on Netflix from Sunday, February 14.
