Earlier, the comedian found himself in the midst of controversy after a section of society took offence at his monologue on ‘Two Indias. Vir was trolled by netizens for the same.
Reacting to the criticism, Vir Das in an interview with NDTV told, “I think laughter is a celebration. When laughter and applause fill up a room, that’s a moment of pride. Any Indian who has a sense of humour, understands satire, or watches my entire video, knows that’s what happened in that room.”
He added, “I can’t expect what happens when I put out a piece of content — it’s jokes, it’s not in my hands,” Das stated. “I think a comedian puts out satire, it has the good of the country and the bad of the country, ending in the good of country…that’s something you should want to come together in.”
“I have made my country laugh for 10 years now. I have devoted my life to writing about my country. We are here at the Emmys because I wrote a love letter to my country. As long as I am able to do my comedy, I want to keep writing love letters to my country,” Vir Das said.
