Vir
Das
had
found
himself
embroiled
in
an
ugly
controversy
after
his
monologue
‘Two
Indias’ at
the
John
F
Kennedy
Centre
in
Washington
DC
had
earned
the
ire
of
many
netizens.
The
comedian-actor
had
touched
on
topics
like
farmer’s
protests,
women’s
safety,
petrol
prices
and
others
in
his
speech.
FIRs
were
also
registered
against
Vir
and
he
has
been
reportedly
banned
to
perform
in
some
states
including
Madhya
Pradesh.
Now,
the
actor
has
opened
up
about
whether
he
is
being
affected
by
this
uproar
over
his
monologue.

Vir-Das

On
being
quipped
whether
he
would
have
done
the
monologue
differently,
Vir
Das
said,
“I
think
laughter
is
a
celebration
and
when
laughter
and
applause
fill
up
a
room…
that’s
a
moment
of
pride.
I
think
that
any
Indian
who
has
a
sense
of
humour,
or
understands
satire,
or
watches
my
entire
video,
knows
that
that’s
what
happened
in
that
room.”
The

Go
Goa
Gone

actor
also
stated
that
he
cannot
decide
the
outcome
of
whether
his
jokes
will
resonate
with
the
audience
or
not.
He
added,
“A
comedian
puts
out
satire
and
if
it’s
the
good
of
the
country
and
the
bad
of
the
country
ending
in
the
good
of
the
country…
I
think
that’s
something
that
you
should
want
to
come
together
in

I
can’t
expect
what
happens
when
I
put
out
a
piece
of
content…
It’s
jokes.
It’s
not
in
my
hands.”

Vir
Das
further
hinted
that
he
is
not
bothered
by
the
excessive
criticism
that
he
has
been
garnering
after
the
monologue.
The

Revolver
Rani

actor
added,
“I
have
made
my
country
laugh
for
10
years
now.
I
have
devoted
my
life
to
writing
about
my
country.
We
are
here
at
the
Emmys
because
I
wrote
a
love
letter
to
my
country.
As
long
as
I
am
able
to
do
my
comedy
I
want
to
keep
writing
love
letters
to
my
country.”
On
being
asked
whether
he
will
be
more
careful
now
on
delivering
his
jokes,
Vir
said,
“I
just
don’t
know.
Write
jokes
and
hope
to
hell
that
people
watch
all
of
them,
the
full
thing
in
its
actual
context.”
On
the
professional
front,
the
comedian’s
show

Wierdass
Comedy

has
received
an
Emmy
nomination
for
the
Best
Comedy
Series.
