An incredible honor that feels like a dream. Winning the Emmy for Vir Das Landing in the Comedy Category is a milestone not just for me but for Indian comedy as a whole.
It heartening to see Vir Das Landing resonate globally thanks to Netflix Aakash Sharma and Reg Tiger Man who made it special. My journey from crafting local stories to gaining global acclaim has been both challenging and rewarding and Netflix has been instrumental in that growth. Im excited by the constant pursuit of diverse narratives from Noida to the International Emmys – India will take you there.
