Zee Telugu's 3D magnum opus TV serial - Mayavi has won the jury's special award at the Seoul Drama Awards 2007. This is the first Indian serial to win this prestigious award which is considered the Oscar Awards for television.
Mayavi is a part science fiction and part action oriented spy thriller based on the comic book hero Mayavi whose right hand is made of steel and is endowed with magic powers. This scenario called for creating highly stylised, hi-tech looking locales, backdrops and props for the hero to evolve into a larger than life character. Mayavi is a 3D serial – the first of its kind in on television and a genre that has not been attempted on regional television.

The international jury headed by Larry Gershman, chairman of the Emmy Committee, chose the awards from the total nominations. The awards presentation ceremony was held in KBS Hall in Seoul.
