Priyanka Chopra Is Proud Of Vir Das For His International Emmy Nomination. Us Too!
Comedian and Actor Vir Das made us all proud when he bagged International Emmys nomination and received praises from all over the world. Priyanka Chopra was also one of them who praised him for the honour. The Quantico actress took to her Instagram and posted a story to congratulate Vir Das. She shared a picture of the nominee medal won by Vir and wrote, “Congratulations @virdas u make us so proud!”
Vir Das was nominated for his comedy special, Vir Das: For India, on Netflix and has been in news back home for his “I Come From Two Indias” monologue.
Vir Das had shared the news about him attending the International Emmy Awards on his Instagram handle. He shared a few pictures of his nominee medal and meal and wrote, “I was nominated for best comedy at the International Emmy Awards, for jokes. Call My Agent, a gigantic beautiful show I love won. But I got this medal, and ate this fantastic salad with a very interesting crispy cheese topping. It was an honour to represent my country. Thanks so much to the @iemmys For India. It’s always for India. #VirDasForIndia.”
The Go Goa Gone actor also shared pictures from the red carpet and he looked stunning in his outfit, he wore a black buttoned-down jacket which he paired with a short white kurta and black pants by Pradeep Bhatt who is a fourth-year fashion student at NIFT. Vir Das chose to wear a local Indian designer instead of a top designer. He wrote, “Did not want to go with a fancy foofoo designer for the Emmys. Put a post out saying if you’re struggling or studying, I would buy & wear your design. We found #PradeepBhatt @pradbhatt from Haldwani, Uttarakhand in his 4th year at NIFT Kangra. Proud to wear your first originals buddy. Hope this is the beginning of a wonderful future for you! This outfit will soon be auctioned for charity.”

Vir Das’s Netflix comedy special lost out to Call My Agent Season 4 from France in the comedy category. But he has all nice things to say about it, the comedian said he loved the French drama, which recently got remade for India by Netflix, named Call My Agent: Bollywood.
Meanwhile, Nawazuddin Siddiqui was also nominated for the best performance by an actor category for his Netflix movie Serious Men but lost out to Scottish actor David Tennant. Sushmita Sen’s hit web show Aarya was nominated too in the best drama series category but Israel’s Tehran bagged the award.
