WHAT IS DELHI CRIME ALL ABOUT?
Netflix’s Delhi Crime, directed by Richie Mehta, sees Shefali Shah in the role of a Deputy Commissioner of Police, charged with nabbing the rapists of the horrific 2012 Delhi gang-rape and murder. Released in 2019, the show received rave reviews from the audience as well as the critics, even as it remains a very difficult show to watch. The 7-part series has a rating of 8.5 on IMDb.
The 48th International Emmy Awards, for the first time in the history, was held virtually due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. There was no red carpet or stage audience. Popular actor Richard Kind hosted the event live from an empty theatre in New York City.
