Mallika Sherawat is back in India, and this time, it is to grace Indian television screens. She will be playing the leading role in the Indian adaptation of CBS’s seven season series ‘The Good Wife’ (2009-2016). Sherawat is elated to be bringing a strong female character to India, which was originally played by the popular Julianna Margulies.

Sherawat said, “I’m really excited about bringing The Good Wife to India and thank CBS for putting their faith in me. I’m really excited about this opportunity. I love the show. It features a fierce and beautifully written female character with enough contradiction, emotional range and surprise. The show’s brilliant storyline & pioneering female role made me want to do it in India,” as reported by the Indian Express.

Sherawat was last seen in ‘Zeenat’ (2017).
