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," says Jackie.

"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 Justice follows the lives 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.

Director Vishal Furia will also be debuting as series director in the digital space with this show.
