Indian reality television show “Crime Patrol Dastak” is all set to air its special episode on the Dec. 16, 2012 Delhi gang-rape case this weekend after getting clearance from the Information and Broadcasting Ministry.
The episode, which will be hosted by popular TV actor Anup Soni, was scheduled to air earlier this year but got postponed following a directive from the ministry.
Soni, 38, who is known for his roles in TV series such as “Balika Vadhu,” “CID Special Bureau” and “Virrudh,” insists that the episode would be presented in a sensitive manner.
“I would definitely vouch for my show; ‘Crime Patrol’ has been very sensitive towards its graphic representations. We have shot the story sensitively and there is no drama,” said Soni.
“We got clearance from the ministry after the court verdict on the incident,” he added.
The show will be aired Sept. 21 and 22.
A Delhi trial court recently awarded the death penalty to the four convicts in the case — Akshay Thakur, Vinay Sharma, Mukesh Singh and Pawan Gupta.
The actor said the episode is an attempt to prepare viewers for such situations.
“This episode is just another attempt to make people aware and raise questions about what people could do now. This case happened, we protested and these culprits got punished, but what next? We should look for a solution. That is what we are trying to show,” Soni said.
