Mumbai: Indian actors Priyanka Chopra, Rajkummar Rao, Hrithik Roshan and Abhishek Bachchan have congratulated the team behind the Netflix series “Delhi Crime” over the show’s International Emmy win. The Netflix India Original series bagged the best drama series honour at the 48th International Emmy Awards on Monday night. Taking to Twitter, Priyanka, Rajkummar, Hrithik and Abhishek, among others, lauded director Richie Mehta and its cast, led by Shefali Shah, over their achievement.
“Congratulations to the entire team of #DelhiCrime on the win at the International Emmy Awards.

Told from the perspective of the Delhi Police team investigating the crime that made global headlines, “Delhi Crime” deconstructs the case of the 23-year-old physiotherapy intern who was abducted and gangraped in a moving bus on the night of December 16, 2012 before she was abandoned on a Delhi road. Her injuries were so grievous that she died in a Singapore hospital a fortnight later. The show, released in 2019, received massive acclaim for its sensitive retelling of a horrific crime that shook the entire nation. Performances by its ensemble cast, including Shefali Shah, Rasika Dugal, Adil Hussain and Rajesh Tailang, were particularly appreciated.
