Streaming platform Disney+ Hotstar announced that Bollywood actor Kajol’s debut web series has been titled The Good Wife – Pyaar, Kanoon, Dhoka.

As part of its Disney+ Day celebration, the streamer unveiled the 48-year-old actor’s first look from the upcoming show, in which she will play a lawyer for the first-time.

The Good Wife – Pyaar, Kanoon, Dhoka is an Indian take on popular American legal drama television series The Good Wife, that aired on CBS.

The new show is directed by Suparn Verma and produced by Banijay Asia.

Kajol said she is excited about her OTT debut with a show that gave her an opportunity to experiment and play a newer character.

“I have been playing multiple characters throughout my acting journey, but the firsts are always special. The beauty of OTT platforms is that they give creators and actors an opportunity to reinvent and experiment with different formats, and with Disney+Hotstar’s The Good Wife, that’s exactly what I got! As a career first move, I will be playing a lawyer in my first ever series, directed by the fabulous Suparn. I’m excited to be sharing more about the show and the character I play, so stay tuned,” the actor said in a statement.

The original series, The Good Wife, was created by CBS Studios, in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions.

Disney+Day is an annual celebration of the Disney+ global community that was first launched in 2021 and features content premieres from the streaming service’s marquee brands, special experiences and offers for subscribers and fans, and more.

One of the top legal dramas of the contemporary age is The Good Wife, which aired on CBS from 2009 through 2016. The show doesn't actually do anything particularly wild or original; it simply executes its version to an exceptionally high standard, juggling a deep, serialised plot with lively procedural components in an universe dominated solely by the clever and mysterious.

There's no way The Good Wife would have had all its eccentric judges and fascinating guest stars if it had been a premium cable programme or streaming series since it wouldn't have needed to fill 22 episodes per season. Additionally, if it had come straight out of the CBS Procedural Fun Factory, it would not have had the thorny politics, character nuance, or patience.
