Veteran actress Deepti Naval has said that she agreed to be a part of the web-series Criminal Justice because she loved the first season.

“I enjoyed working in the series because I had seen part one of Criminal Justice and I had liked it very much. I thought it was very well shot, it was sleek and gripping. I wanted to be part of it. When they offered me the role I agreed and why not? It is something I enjoyed watching so it would be nice to become part of it in chapter two,” she said in an official statement. 

The first season saw Vikrant Massey's character Aditya Sharma being wrongly pronounced guilty of murder. Pankaj Tripathi’s character, lawyer Madhav Mishra, plays a big role in bringing out the truth. His character has been retained in the second season while Shilpa Shukla is the new addition. Naval enjoyed working with both artistes. 

“I also looked forward to working with younger actors, the new, young exciting lot. I enjoyed working with Pankaj Tripathi, Shilpa Shukla, the child who played my granddaughter Mishti Sinha and the two directors I worked with Rohan Sippy and Arjun Mukherjee; both are very bright. I enjoyed working with both of them,” added Naval. 

Naval's last performance was in the web-series Pawan & Pooja, which was released earlier this year on MX Player. 

The second season of Criminal Justice features Anupriya Goenka, Mita Vashisht [both of whom were in the first season], Kirti Kulhari, Jisshu Sengupta and Ashish Vidyarthi. It will be streamed on Disney+ Hotstar from 24 December.
