After winning the award, the director of the series, Richie Mehta, in the virtual event stated, “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.”
Many Bollywood celebs took to social media to congratulate the Delhi Crime team.
Hrithik Roshan commented on Shah’s post, “Wow wow wow. Well deserved !!”
