BOLLYWOOD film actress Mallika Sherawat will produce and headline the Indian adaptation of the American television series The Good Wife. The ‘Murder’ movie star had shared the news on her Twitter account.
The CBS network show (2009-2016) is about a stay-at-home mother Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) who goes back to being an attorney after her husband (Chris Noth) is imprisoned in a sex and corruption scandal. The acclaimed political thriller has won five Emmy awards.
Along with acting, Mallika Sherawat will be the producer of the show also. While giving an interview to the ‘Times of India’ she said that “I love the series, as it features a fierce and beautifully-written female character with enough contradiction, emotional range, and surprise. The show’s brilliant story-line and pioneering female role made me want to adapt it for the Indian audience, which is more prepared today to consume such content.”
Mallika Sherawat has been a part of many Super-hit Bollywood movies and item songs.
