Shefali Shah, Rajesh Tailang, and Rasika Dugal, stars of the show’s cast, are currently seen promoting their show. During a recent interaction, Shah highlighted the primary difference between the two seasons. According to her, the second season of the show is a “fictionalised version of a true crime.” When asked what the main difference between seasons one and two was, she responded, “I guess the difference is that over there, there was a crime, and these characters came into the picture. There is a crime over here, and the characters are here, increasing the involvement of the characters even further. They are now more than simply police officers; they are also humans. All of it and more are there.”
Shah added in the interview that the show’s essential elements wouldn’t change. She said, “Since Delhi crime is procedural, its fundamental nature won’t change. It’s gritty, honest, and raw. It’s not dramatic, and it’s not meant to sensationalise a situation or an event.” She added that the characters are so compelling and deeply ingrained that everything that occurs is their response to the events taking place around them.
Delhi Crime 2 Release Time:
Delhi Crime 2 will be released on August 26 on Netflix. As Netflix original shows and movies are typically released globally at 12:00 a.m. Delhi Crime Season 2 will be released at midnight as well.
