The trailer of Wedding. Con an upcoming documentary series about matrimonial scams was unveiled on Friday. Directed by Tanuja Chandra and produced by BBC Studios India Production, the five-part docuseries tells the stories of five women who were conned for amounts in lakhs by men they met on matrimonial websites.

The series follows the stories of five women as they embark on the journey to fulfil their dream of a happy marriage. However, their search for the perfect life partner takes a distressing turn as they fall victim to financial and emotional exploitation by conmen. These imposters, assuming fake identities and posing as suitable grooms on online platforms, leave the women betrayed. Emphasising the need to raise awareness and take action against such scams, the docuseries sheds light on the vulnerability of women who, in their pursuit of companionship, become easy, unsuspecting targets of deceitful schemes.

"In India and other South Asian cultures, it is widely believed that marriage is the most significant milestone in a woman's life, and the pressure to 'settle down' keeps mounting as she grows older," said director Tanuja Chandra. "In fact, by the time she's 35, she's told the ship has long sailed. 

Wedding.Con is the tale of five women who were victims of matrimonial fraud, but are now survivors and have shown tremendous courage in recounting their experience, to expose these scams,” she added.

The docuseries will start streaming on Prime Video from December 29.
