While the Gangs of Wasseypur star was nominated in the ‘Best Performance by an Actor’ category for his Netflix movie Serious Men, Vir was nominated for his comedy special, Vir Das: For India.
For the event, Nawazuddin chose a traditional red carpet outfit — a classic white tuxedo, paired with black trousers and a bow-tie to complete the look. Styled by Jahnvi Bansal, the actor’s outfit was teamed with classic black shoes.
Prior to the event, he gave a sneak peak of his look on Instagram, and wrote: “It’s always your choice that you will be remembered for and not for whether you win or lose”.

Vir, who recently found himself embroiled in controversy, opted for a flattering black, buttoned-down jacket styled with a short white kurta and black trousers.
The duo looked dapper as they posed together on the red carpet. Take a look here:
