In a newest video, Vir Das took a dig at individuals who mock Indians for doing choreographed steps in crowded locations. Priyanka Chopra shared his video and agreed.
Actor Priyanka Chopra shared a month-old video of actor and comic Vir Das on Instagram. In the video, Vir took a dig at individuals who mock Indians for doing choreographed steps to music. He says, that now, everybody on Instagram and TikTok is doing the identical factor.
In the video, Vir might be heard saying: “Think about this for a second. For years, Bollywood songs were shot in crowded places, tourist destinations. So we Indians would go to these crowded places and suddenly start doing choreographed steps to music and do lip synching and everybody including some Indians are like, ‘What is up with these Indians?’ Now years later all you do on Instagram and TikTok is head to crowded places and do choreographed steps lip synching songs that you never sang. You aren’t original.” Priyanka shared the video and said, “Speak the truth [laughing emoji].”
Many individuals commented on the video agreeing with him, whereas some stated that Vir’s content material shouldn’t be actual. One fan commented: “I totally agree.. Have been tellin this for a whereas.” While another one said: “@virdas so on point man!!!!!!!! Amusing hypocrisy.” Slamming Vir’s content one person wrote: “unoriginal. just like remixes on tiktok”
Earlier this year, Vir’s Netflix show, Vir Das: For India, got nominated in the comedy segment at International Emmy awards. At that time, he spoke to Hindustan Times and said: “I thought it was a joke, this can’t be real. Then my management confirmed the news. It took a while to sink in because an Indian comic has never been nominated before, and especially stand-up comedy has never been nominated, forget Indian or not. Usually, it’s the series which get nominated in that category.”
