Pankaj Tripathi is all set to bring one his most loved roles as Madhav Mishra back on the small screens with the third installment of Applause entertainment’s popular courtroom drama web-show, Criminal Justice. With the first two seasons performing exceedingly well in terms of audience response and viewership, the makers of the show have decided to take things up a notch with their third outing. According to reports, it is going to be shot on a much bigger scale with a mix of new as well as old characters from the franchise coming together in a new story line.
Pankaj Tripathi, who recently returned from his hometown, Belsand located in Gopalganj, Patna Bihar with his family to celebrate New Year commenced the shoot for Criminal Justice 3 from the first week of January in Mumbai.
As per the sources, “Criminal Justice has always been a franchise very close to Pankaj. The journey which started off from the first season in 2019 got such an overwhelming response that we’re already starting to shoot the third season in the start of 2022. Madhav Mishra’s character is somewhat like Pankaj – he stands for what is right, no matter what; he believes in uplifting and supporting the weaker sections of our society; and he relies on just two traits – honesty and pure talent.
Criminal Justice season 3 is directed by Rohan Sippy, produced by Applause Entertainment starring Pankaj Tripathi in the lead role and will stream on Disney+ Hotstar towards the end of 2022.
After wrapping up the much awaited sequel of OMG with Akshay Kumar, Pankaj Tripathi has started shooting for Srijit Mukherji’s next, Sherdil in November 2021. Playing the lead in the film, the versatile actor is in the company of fine talents like Neeraj Kabi and Sayani Gupta as his co-actors. Sherdil, whose shoot was to begin in 2020 was held up due to the pandemic.
