Netflix’s India Original series Delhi Crime has bagged the Best Drama Series award at the 48th International Emmy Awards. This was the first-ever Emmy for an Indian show.

The seven-part series written and directed by Richie Mehta is based on the 2012 Delhi gang-rape and murder case. It stars Shefali Shah as deputy commissioner of police tasked with finding the culprits of the brutal crime.

Shah shared a clip from the award show where she can be heard saying ‘Oh my God’.

The 2019 show received massive acclaim for its sensitive retelling of a horrific crime that shook the entire nation.

Two other Emmy nominations from India included Amazon Prime Video’s Four More Shots and Arjun Mathur for his role in drama Made in Heaven in the best comedy and actor categories respectively.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the awards were held virtually for the first time in the history of International Emmys. TV, film, and stage actor Richard Kind hosted the ceremony live from an empty theatre in New York City, with no live audience.
