Raj Kapoor Awards for Excellence
thedailyeye.info

Here’s reviving the Raj Kapoor Awards for Excellence in Entertainment, instituted by thedailyeye.info. We start 2021 with announcing awards for excellence in the various categories of web series on OTT platforms.

As the year is ebbing off - a year like never before - with its mounting number of tragedies and anxieties of mortality swirling within us, we attempt now to spread some cheer and salute one of our go-to relief points: the OTT platforms.

The show must sparkle on. So, here’s reviving the Raj Kapoor Awards for Excellence in Entertainment, instituted by thedailyeye.info in 2018.

The current situation being what it is, we are confining our salutes exclusively to the web series which emerged from the outset of 2020, the cut-off date being December 15, 2020. The focus is on the series (earlier called serials), which had us bingeing and craving for more.

The selection in the various categories has been finalised by a

Jury: Faroukh Mistry, Apurva Asrani, Kunal Mehta, Sushil Poddar, Dhruv Somani and Asha Parekh, chaired by our resident OTT reviewer Khalid Mohamed.
