Subbulakshmi Samsara is a show about a woman named Subbalakshmi and her married life. The protagonist is played by Deepa Bhaskar, who has an exceptional talent of being relatable to many such housewives turned businesswomen, in the same situation. What situation you may ask? Well, unfortunately for Subbi (as she is lovingly called), her husband turned out to be a cheater, who gets into an illicit affair with his secretary, Shanaya.
