It was nothing short of a dream debut for young Kolkata actor Aaditya Gupta, who not only bagged an interesting role in season three of Criminal Justice but also got a chance to work with some of the leading actors, including Pankaj Tripathi and Swastika Mukherjee for the Disney+ Hotstar series. The third season of the legal drama was dropped on the platform in August. While it has received moderate reviews, Aaditya seems to be3 very happy with his work and the opportunity of working with Pankaj, Swastika and others. 

Produced by Applause Entertainment and BBC Studios, the show is based on a British television series of the same name. Aaditya’s portrayal as Mukul Ahuja (Swastika Mukherjee plays his mother) – an affluent teenager with complex psychological issues – has earned him love and support from the audience and turned him into a bright star to look for in the future. “It was a dream come true moment for me when I was chosen for the role in the series,” he said. Talking about his co-actors, he said, “Working with Pankaj Tripathi was filled with nuanced learning experiences. He is a gem of a person and one of the most humble human beings I have ever seen. On the other hand, it was a pleasure working with Swastika ma’am. There was a moment on the set where one of Kolkata's favourite delicacies was mentioned. It was such a stressbuster for both of us as it reminded us about our place of belonging.”

Aaditya started his journey as an actor with Rangakarmee Theatre Group just a couple of years back. From a very young age, he found his passion for acting and he followed his dream with dedication. Despite coming from a humble background, he pursued acting and finally bagged a coveted role with a renowned OTT platform.
