“Winning an Emmy for Vir Das: Landing in the 'Comedy Category' is not just a milestone for me but for Indian comedy as a whole. It's heartening to see the show resonate globally. I am excited about the continued exploration of diverse narratives, from Noida to the International Emmys - India gets you there,” he added.
