A film banned by Indian authorities about the deadly rape of a young woman on a bus in New Delhi has opened in the United States to acclaim, with Hollywood star Meryl Streep saying it deserves to win an Academy Award.

Depicting the rape and murder of a medical student in 2012 that sparked violent protests, the documentary "India's Daughter" has been held up in controversy since the Indian government implemented its ban.

But Oscar-winning actress Streep, who introduced the documentary at its U.S. theatrical release in New York City last night, said it was worthy of the movie industry's highest honour.
