‘It’s Always For India’ Vir Das Shares Heartfelt Post With His Emmy Nomination Medal Pic

The International Emmy Awards took place last night. From India, Nawazuddin Siddiqui was nominated under the ‘Best Actor’ category for his performance in ‘Serious Men’, Sushmita Sen’s ‘Aarya’ was nominated for ‘Best Drama’ and Vir Das’ comedy special was nominated for ‘Best Comedy’. Sadly, all three of them lost to better works of art, reported NDTV.

However, Vir Das took to Instagram to share pictures of his Emmy nomination medal, certificate, and the meal he enjoyed at the ceremony along with a heartfelt post.

He went on to write:

“I was nominated for best comedy at the International Emmy Awards, for jokes. Call My Agent, a gigantic beautiful show I love won. But I got this medal, and ate this fantastic salad with a very interesting crispy cheese topping. It was an honour to represent my country. For India. It‚Äôs always for India.”
