Maanvi Gagroo returns as Sidhi in the third season of the popular web series Four More Shots Please. She says the success of the story happened because a large section of the audience felt represented on screen.

"Till now we had not seen such characters on screen, but it doesn't mean that they don't exist in real life. Of course, these are slightly dramatised versions but these things happen. There are women who drink and party, make their own money, and make mistakes. They live life on their own terms. They are regular people trying to lead life on their terms. I don't think the purpose of this show is to change any mindset. I think a huge section of the audience felt that they got represented. The minute you see something like that, you feel confident about your choices. However, in terms of bringing these characters and stories on screen, there has been a big break in the stereotype," said Maanvi, about the series that showcases the lives of four independent women who live on their terms.

Although both seasons were declared a success, the show drew criticism, too, from certain sections who alleged that it showcased independent women in a different light.
