The groundwork for the critically praised first two seasons of Criminal Justice was already in place because they were based on the 2008 British television series of the same name. Criminal Justice: Adhura Sach, the third instalment, stands out since it has an original plot. This time, Pankaj Tripathi, better known by his stage name Madhav Mishra, takes on the case of Mukul Ahuja, a teenager who is charged with murdering his child actor sister. Director Rohan Sippy trains the spotlight on India's juvenile justice system through the Disney+ Hotstar service.

During an interaction with Mid Day, Tripathi said that a few individuals are aware of how the juvenile justice system operates. The series will therefore inform the audience about this system in addition to having a compelling storyline. When a youngster is apprehended, his family and later society are involved. Tripathi, who is usually eager to repeat his lawyer character, calls it an interesting look at how society affects a family and a child.

The actor had little trouble taking on the role of Madhav Mishra, who conceals a keen mind beneath his bumbling and awkward mannerisms. He exclaims happily that he completely relates to Madhav. Tripathi began his career as an underdog, just like his on-screen persona. At the start of his career, he was Madhav Mishra, and he wanted to succeed in Bollywood. The actor can identify with his joy, cleverness, and pain. Rohan used to advise the crew and writers. Let him do it on his own, even when he was on stage. Tripathi is more familiar with Madhav Mishra than any of them are.

Shweta Basu Prasad, Swastika Mukherjee, Purab Kohli, and Aditya Gupta are all starring in significant parts in the upcoming season, which is being produced by Applause Entertainment and BBC Studios.

Sharing the screen time with Basu was enjoyable for the actor. Shweta speaks with such grace that Tripathi used to sit and watch her. It led him to believe that, as a lawyer, he ought to lose to her. Madhav is awkward and disorganised, but Shweta's character is slender and graceful.
