Netflix web series Delhi Crime may help revive talk on public safety
Actor Sanjay Bishnoi who is playing a pivotal role in the Netflix original series "Delhi Crime", based on the Nirbhaya gang-rape case that shook the nation in 2012, says the importance of retelling the story is to continue the conversation on the safety of civilians that the authorities are responsible for.
On the significance of retelling the widely reported case, Sanjay told IANS here, "Revisiting the story is to start the conversation on our safety and security on the roads all over again. We deserve to feel safe and secure and not harassed by people. Providing that security is the responsibility of the system."
Hopefully the show would help start the conversation on the safety of civilians and in raising our voice against crime, he added.
In 2012, the 23-year-old paramedic student, who was travelling with her friend in a bus, was brutally gang-raped by six people in the moving vehicle. She was assaulted with an iron rod and her intestines were pulled out.
Sanjay is portraying Akash, the victim's friend who was travelling with her and was witness to the whole incident. He was also attacked.
