In the previous year, Kajol appeared in her debut OTT film, Tribhanga. The actor would eventually find a story interesting enough to launch her web series career. And what could be more appropriate than the Hindi adaptation of The Good Wife, in which the female actor is the main character? After finishing Lust Stories 2, Kajol started gearing up for the Disney+ Hotstar version of the courtroom drama.
A set is being built at Juhu Gold Studio, where a significant portion of the drama will be filmed, a source informs Mid-day. The initial schedule will feature an office setting because a large chunk of the show takes place in law practice and courtrooms. Kajol, who will offer her spin on Alicia Florrick's primary role, is anticipated to start filming on August 11, according to the source. The main cast and creator have not yet been revealed by the streaming provider.
The Good Wife received a lot of praise when it debuted in 2009. The life of Alicia Florrick, played by Julianna Margulies, who picks up her law career following her husband's sex and political corruption scandal, is the focus of the legal and political drama.
Exploring a new format is always a challenge, according to the 48-year-old actor, but it's a wonderful thing because she loves to approach difficulties head-on.
As an enthusiastic fan of digital series, the concept has always piqued her interest, and after seeing cool episodes like Aarya and Rudra, Kajol felt there was no other platform than Disney+ Hotstar to begin her series journey.
Meanwhile, Kajol's last big screen outing was Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, in which she was reunited with her husband, actor Ajay Devgn. The actor is also shooting for a film directed by Revathy, which is yet to get a release date.
