Vir Das recently made headlines for his controversial ‘I come from two Indias’ gig that he performed at the John F Kennedy Center in Washington. The actor was also nominated in the comedy category at the International Emmy Awards last year.
Das was also caught in the eye of the storm after he made jokes about the transgender community. He later apologised for his actions, stating, “I did a joke on the new ten on ten episode that my friends in the Trans community felt hurt by. I see why. My intent in the moment, was to say Trans people have courage the Govt never ever could and it was set up wrong and uninformed. I messed up. It had the opposite effect and trivialized your struggle. Articulating my intent effectively is my responsibility, not yours.”
