With news that weddings in the UK have now been reduced to just 15 attendees, the chances are that if you were invited to a downsized wedding for 30, you might have just been pushed off the guestlist. It’s bad enough not being able to get your glad rags on as a wedding guest this year, but the fact we’re missing out on all the drama, food, and glamour is becoming too much to bear.
Luckily there is light relief in the form of Amazon Prime Original Made In Heaven. The stylish series created by Bollywood filmmakers Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti set in Delhi revolves around the wedding industry. It follows wedding planners Tara and Karan who each episode are faced with a different couple’s Big Day drama to deal with. The show has received rave reviews, and for anyone missing attending a big fat desi wedding this year, it’s a must-watch, especially now that it’s been nominated for an International Emmy Award with Arjun Mathur up for Best Performance by an Actor.
The other Indian show to make the shortlist is Delhi Crime, based on the horrific gang rape of intern Jyoti Singh on a bus in Delhi in 2012. Created by Netflix India it’s been shortlisted in the Drama category. The full shortlist was announced on Thursday and the awards recognise excellence in television programmes made outside of the US. Categories include best performances, best comedy, and best documentary.
