In what has been a significant win for an Indian web series, Netflix’s ‘Delhi Crime’ based on the 2012 gangrape-murder case, has bagged the ‘Best Drama Series’ award at the 48th International Emmys on Monday.
The seven-episode series is a fictionalised retelling of the 2012 Delhi gang-rape and murder case, starring Shefali Shah, Rasika Duggal, Rajesh Railang and Adil Hussain in prominent roles.
The web series was written and directed by Richie Mehta, who was also the executive producer of the show and was produced under the banner of Golden Karavan, a global production company.
Mehta dedicated the award to ‘all the women’ during the virtual award ceremony. “I dedicate this award to all the women who not just endure the violence that so many men inflict on them, but are then tasked to solve the problem. Finally, to the tireless mother, and her daughter. Not a day goes by when I don’t think about you both and what the world subjected you two to. And I hope none of us ever forget that,” he said in his speech.
An ecstatic Shefali Shah, who was the lead actor in the series, shared a clip from the award show where she can be heard saying ‘oh my God’.
