Tigmanshu Dhulia is all set to make his debut in the digital medium by directing Indian adaptation of Criminal Justice, that will have actors such as Jackie Shroff, Vikrant Massey, Pankaj Tripathi, Mita Vashisht and Anupriya Goenka.
Aditya Birla Group's Applause Entertainment is making the official Indian version of the British television drama series Criminal Justice. It will be produced by BBC Studios India. The format has been adapted for India by Shridhar Raghavan, known for his work in Khakee and Chandni Chowk to China.
"After working in films for so many years, when BBC and Applause Entertainment approached me to work in the digital medium, it had to be something that was striking and different and that is exactly what Criminal Justice is," Jackie said.
"The day Shridhar narrated the script and my role..., I knew this was it! The script brought out a host of emotions in me and I hope it does that to the viewers, too. It is mysterious, heart-pounding, unpredictable, thrilling and keeps you hooked and on the edge of the seat waiting for answers you thought you knew," he added.
Criminal Justicefollows the life of individuals on a gut wrenching journey through the criminal justice system. It has also been adapted for the US as The Night Of and stars John Turturro and Riz Ahmed.
Dhulia says the story "engulfs you and preserves the mystery by withholding information and keeping you in the lurch, gasping for more". "It constantly undermines what we think we know and makes one question every single thing one sees," he added.
