Vir Das unfunny, say audience of ‘I come from 2 Indias’

A monologue Vir Das delivered as part of his performance in the US amounted to 'insulting India', many social media users said

Acomplaint has been filed against actor-comedian Vir Das at Tilak Marg Police Station in connection with a viral in which he is allegedly using derogatory language against the nation during an event in US.

Vir Das has courted controversy over a monologue he delivered as part of his performance in the US, with many on social media calling him out for “insulting India”.

Vir Das, who is currently in the US, on Monday uploaded a on YouTube, titled “I come from two Indias”. The monologue in the video was part of his recent performance at the John F Kennedy Centre in Washington DC.

In the six-minute video, Vir Das talks about some of the most topical issues in India, from its battle against Covid-19, cases, crackdown against comedians to the farmers’ protests.

Following criticism over his video, Vir Das issued a statement through his Twitter handle, stating that his intention was to remind that the country, despite its issues, was “great”.

“The is a satire about the duality of two very separate India’s that do different things. Like any nation has light and dark, good and evil within it. None of this is a secret. The video appeals for us to never forget that we are great. To never stop focusing on what makes us great.

“It ends in a gigantic patriotic round of applause for a country we all love, believe in, and are proud of. That there is more to our country than the headlines, a deep beauty. That’s the point of the and the reason for the applause,” his statement read.

Das wrote that people cheer for the country with hope and not “hate” and asked his followers to not be misled by edited clips.

“Please do not be fooled by edited snippets. People cheer for India with hope, not hate. People clap for India with respect, not malice. You cannot sell tickets, earn applause, or represent a great people with negativity, only with pride. I take pride in my country, and I carry that pride across the world.

“To me, a room full of people anywhere in the world, giving India an ovation is pure love. I ask of you, the same thing I asked of that audience…to focus on the light, remember our greatness, and spread the love,” he said.
