Richie Mehta, Writer & Director of the show, said “This project was led by women, it was financed and put together and released by women, this crime was solved by women. This is for the courage of those women and all the women who not only endure the violence so many men must inflict on them but are then tasked with solving the problem.”
“And finally the fearless and tireless Asha Devi and her daughter Jyoti Singh. Not a day goes by when I don’t think about you both… I hope none of us ever forget,” he added.
