Noted actress Rasika Dugal - who has a number of critically acclaimed films to her credit - garnered a lot of attention for her character (IPS officer Neeti Singh) in Netflix’s crime drama series Delhi Crime. With the third season of the Shefali Shah, Adil Hussain and Rajesh Tailang starrer series scheduled to release in December this year, Rasika has revealed that she is all set to reprise her role in it.
The actress - best known for her work in Mirzapur and Manto, among others - recently took to her Instagram handle to confirm the news, coinciding with the fourth anniversary of the show’s first season.
Rasika’s portrayal of Neeti Singh was both convincing and emotional, as she managed to bring in an extra layer of depth to the already complex narrative of the crime series. Speaking about her return to the series, the actress told IANS, “It’s an honour to be part of a show that sheds light on the realities of society we live in. Neeti Singh is very close to my heart, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to bring her to life again in the upcoming season of Delhi Crime. I’m looking forward to exploring more of her and to collaborating with a team that is dedicated to telling important stories with the required skill and sensitivity.”
