Madhav Mishra aka Pankaj Tripathi is back with his wit, strategies and quest for truth. Following the runaway success of the first two seasons, Disney+ Hotstar returns for the third season of the critically acclaimed show Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach. The series is directed by Rohan Sippy and produced by Applause Entertainment in collaboration with BBC Studios India.

Pankaj Tripathi reprises his role as Madhav Mishra in the latest season. This season, the show gets bigger and better as the witty lawyer faces off against a steel-gritted Assistant Public Prosecutor, Lekha, played by Shweta Basu Prasad, in one of the toughest cases of his career.

Director Rohan Sippy, says, criminal justice has already proven its immense potential in reaching the hearts of audiences on Disney+ Hotstar. "With this season, we set out to make the show bigger and better with visual spectacles. In this one, we see Madhav Mishra come face-to-face with a strong-willed lawyer, Lekha, who keeps him on his toes constantly. I’m excited to see how audiences are going to receive it."

Pankaj Tripathi, on his part, says, “What makes Madhav Mishra relatable to audiences is that he comes across as everybody’s lawyer. His ability to simplify difficult concepts makes the one who is seeking counsel at ease. In Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach, he becomes a versatile lawyer taking on different tasks for the client whose intent he’s unsure of. I’m extremely happy to come back as Madhav Mishra in the brand new season of Criminal Justice on Disney+Hotstar.”

Shweta Basu Prasad, who plays the assistant public prosecutor Lekha, says, criminal justice has always fascinated her. "I wrote a backstory to understand the various facets of my character and discover her responses to Madhav Mishra. I made it a discipline to read the script every evening between 6-8 for about 20-25 days, by the time I was on set I had read the script about 150 times. This is the second time I’m working with Pankaj Tripathi, and he is a walking masterclass on sets and one of the most graceful co-stars I have had.”

According to Gaurav Banerjee, the head of content, Disney+Hotstar, the show's pragmatic storytelling resonates strongly with the audience, as evidenced by its overwhelming response over the last two seasons.

Criminal Justice, the Indian adaptation of the BBC Studios drama series of the same name, previously featured Vikrant Massey and Kirti Kulhari. The new season will be available on Disney+ Hotstar from August 26.
