Shefali at International Emmy Awards
Shefali made a stunning appearance at the event in a simple yet elegant red saree. She kept her look minimal and finished off with a bindi for the traditional look.
Talking about receiving a nomination, Shefali had told news agency ANI ahead of the award event, “I am very excited, just over the moon, very very happy. It’s a huge validation and it’s still sinking in.” “It just took me 5 minutes to say yes when Richie Mehta first narrated (the script). More than reading out the script, he just detailed what all happened in Delhi at that point of time (after the horrific gangtext of a para-medical student in Delhi in 2012, which came to be known as the Nirbhaya case). He briefed me on how the investigation into the Nirbhaya case progressed. And, less than 5 minutes into the reading session, I said I want to do this. It was really as simple as that. It was a decision that came out of my heart. I didn’t give it any thought,” she added.
