Mumbai, November 24
Netflix’s India Original series “Delhi Crime”, helmed by Indian-Canadian director Richie Mehta, has bagged the best drama series honour at the 48th International Emmy Awards.
Told from the perspective of the Delhi Police team probing the crime that made global headlines, the series deconstructs the Delhi gangrape case of December 16, 2012.
Mehta dedicated the honour to all women who not just endure violence that men inflict on them, “but are also tasked to solve the problem”.
Actor Shefali Shah played Vartika Chaturvedi, whose character on “Delhi Crime” was based on former Delhi Police DCP Chhaya Sharma who cracked the case. — PTI
