Rajkummar Rao as Marty Byrde 

Marty Byrde is a loving husband and a man, who dabbles the Mexican mafia. Although Marty is unwilling to continue his illegal work with Mexican Mafia, however, his partner in Bruce's murder rattles him. Dealing with the Mexican mafia and his cheating wife, Marty Byrde's character is complex and intriguing. Rajkummar Rao would be an ideal fit for the role of Marty Byrde in Ozark's Indian version. Especially, after his menacing act in last year's Judgementall Hai Kya, it seems like he can pull off a complex character like Marty Byrde.

Anushka Sharma as Wendy Byrde 

Wendy Byrde, who used to work on Election campaigns during her initial years in America, seems to be settling to her new life in Missouri. Interestingly, she had an affair in Chicago, which comes to light, leading to a rocky marriage. Besides, helping Marty with his illegal money laundering activities, she uses her political experience to persuade people to get her work done. 
Anushka Sharma would be an ideal fit for the role Wendy Byrde, originally played by Laura Linney. Especially after her role in the horror movie- Pari (2018) it is sure that Anushka Sharma can pull off any character on screen. Also, Anushka Sharma has played a similar character like Wendy in Parmeet Sethi's Badmaash Company

Recently, the latest season of Ozark released on Netflix. The third season premiered on March 27, 2020, on Netflix. It is reportedly receiving rave reviews from the audience.
