The legal drama Suits is one of America’s most successful television series, spanning over a decade and already spanning nine seasons. A few years ago, one of the main cast, Rick Hoffman, said he would absolutely love to watch an Indian version of the American legal drama television series. And it looks like we’ll be seeing the show adapted in India soon.
News18 has learned that the series is being adapted in India by Shaad Ali. The filmmaker, who has previously directed romantic dramas like Saathiya (2002), Bunty Aur Babli (2005) and Soorma (2018), and recently made his web debut with an MX Player, Pawan & Pooja show, will direct the Indian adaptation. The American series starred Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams as the main protagonists and was Meghan Markle’s last acting project before her marriage to Prince Harry.
Shaad Ali is currently working on the Indian adaptation of the French show Call My Agent. Soni Razdan and Rajat Kapoor will be the headliners of the project.
Speaking of which, a source reveals, “Ali and his team are currently working to adapt their context to a personalized Indian setting. It is believed that the Indian version will chronicle the parameters of the Indian justice system and its flaws. The original version had nine seasons with 134 episodes, so it’s going to take a while. “
Ali was also working on a film with Diljit Dosanjh and Yami Gautam on a film which has now been put on the back burner, “The film was about phantom pregnancy (false pregnancy) and was due to air on the parquet floors in November of last year. Pre-production work had also started, but Dosanjh withdrew from the project due to creative differences. “
Suits is an American legal drama television series created and written by Aaron Korsh. The nine-season series premiered ten years ago. The story revolves around a fictional New York City law firm and follows a talented dropout, Mike Ross, who begins working as a lawyer despite never attending law school.
