Mona Singh, Swastika Mukherjee and Shamita Shetty will be seen starring in an Indian adaptation of the popular international show, Black Widows.

In June this year, it was announced that Scandinavian producers Roope Lehtinen and Mikko Polla’s crime drama hit “Black Widows” is all set for an Indian adaptation, narrating a dark comic story of three best friends who try to kill their abusive husbands. The Indian version would be the eighth international remake of the show. There are versions in Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, the Middle East, Mexico, Scandinavia and the Czech Republic.

The original starred Beate Bill, Cecilia Forss and Synnove Macody Lund, the cast of the Indian version were yet to be revealed back then.

It was announced that along with Mona, Swastika, and Shamita, the Indian web series will also feature Sharad Kelkar, Raima Sen, Parambrata Chattopadhyay and Aamir Ali.

“It feels great to start working again, amid safety measures. What is more exciting is the project itself! Being part of a popular international show with seven remakes and being adapted in India, is a huge opportunity,” said Mona.

The show is helmed by Bengali filmmaker Birsa Dasgupta, and parts of it will be shot in Kolkata.

Swastika added: “It is fun to shoot in Kolkata, where I grew up. There is a great level of comfort, with safety and health as priority. This is a dream project for us all. How often do you get a chance to be part of an international adaptation with a talented director like Birsa and a phenomenal cast?”

Shamita said: “It is not your run-of-the-mill storyline and at the same time, it is a genre that has not been explored in India as it has internationally. Dark humour is tough to understand and even tougher to act! But we are trying out best.”

The shooting of the Zee5 show is presently underway in. Two seasons are being lined up right now. The first season is expected to be released in December.
