Bollywood actor Mallika Sherawat plans to bring the legal-political drama The Good Wife to the Indian audience soon. The Murder star will produce and also star in the Indian adaptation of the show.

Mallika will play the Alicia Florrick’s character and the team is in the process of finalising the cast and crew for the show. ” I’m really excited about bringing The Good Wife to India and thank CBS for putting their faith in me. I’m really excited about this opportunity. I love the show. It features a fierce and beautifully written female character with enough contradiction, emotional range, and surprise. The show’s brilliant storyline & pioneering female role made me want to do it in India,” she said.

The Good Wife, a CBS thriller, aired from 2009 to 2016 and drew in widespread praise for the tight narrative, well-written characters, and serialized plot, especially in the critically acclaimed fifth season. The show traces the journey of housewife Alicia Florrick, the wife of Cook County State’s Attorney. Alicia returns to practicing law after her husband gets involved in a sex and corruption scandal. The show’s keen insights into social media and the internet, and its impact on politics, society, and law, have drawn attention, awards, acclaim, and praise.

The Good Wife garnered a huge fan following during its telecast and won numerous prestigious awards, including five Emmy awards. Mallika is known for working for women’s rights and this is a step in the right direction for her.
