The now-controversial Vir Das, recently embroiled in a controversy over his ‘Two Indias’, a monologue, has been nominated for the Netflix comedy special “Vir Das: For India”.
He tweeted about the same, stating that he lost to Call My Agent but ended up receiving a special medal and a “fantastic” salad at the event. Vir Das posted two pictures and wrote, “I was nominated for best comedy at the International Emmy Awards, for jokes. Call My Agent, a beautiful show I love won. But I got this medal, and ate this fantastic salad. It was an honor to represent my country. Thanks so much to the @iemmys.”
However, the respectful and positive tweet was not taken well by some people who were of the stance that Vir Das had already caused a lot of damage to the country’s reputation. A user wrote in the comments, “Someone tried to defame India, will ultimately qualified for such a international nominations. Bravo. Ghar ka bhedi.”

Vir Das was quick to gain backlash from the trollers for his thank-you Tweet. And Bollywood actor Richa Chadha decided to come to his rescue, calling out a troll with a sassy comment.
This tweet caught the attention of Bollywood actor Richa Chadha. She had the sassiest and crispiest reply for him. She kept the comeback short and asked him if he is well-versed with the news or not.
The actress shut out the troll by tweeting “akhbaar padhte ho ?” and well, it was a game end for the user.
In the monologue, the comedian drew comparisons between the two polarizing sides of India, which needs urgent attention. He highlighted a wide range of topics including the Lakhimpur Kheri case, crimes against women, and the cricket craze in the country. He called out the citizens for ignoring these issues and was quick to receive mixed reactions from the people.
The video clip “I hail from Two Indias”, went viral on the internet made it go breathless. Majorly people trolled Vir for his imagination regarding ‘two Indias’ while a few came in support of him stating this is the reality we face everyday. While the trollers called him ‘criminal’, ‘desh-drohi’ and ‘ghar ka bhedi’. Kangana Ranaut and politician Aditya Jha are included with several others who bashed Vir Das’ monologue.
