There were so many South Asian countries nominated like China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and the competition was very stiff. I felt honoured representing my country and happy to know the kind of reach that Indian content has won over and kind of the appreciation Delhi Crime has garnered across the globe.
