Vir Das’ new Netflix special, For India, to premiere on Republic Day
The comedian has had two previous outings with Netflix, Abroad Understanding and Losing It
For India, the third Netflix special of actor-comedian Vir Das, will begin streaming worldwide on Republic Day (January 26). The comedian has had two previous outings with Netflix, one in 2017 titled Abroad Understanding and another in 2018 titled Losing It. Now a little over a year later, the third special is on its way.
Speaking of For India, Vir said, “Usually a special is about a comedian. This time it's about his country. It's about what it means to be Indian. The Indian condition. Celebrating the best and the craziest in us. It's got little things and some pretty big things too. So I just had to really research and talk to people. What are they watching, what are they talking about, what's keeping them up at night? And then to make it ready and relatable for a worldwide audience. How do you explain 1.3 billion people to 6 billion? That's the aim of the show.”
