New Delhi, November 17
Mumbai-based stand-up comedian Vir Das’s viral video “I come from two Indias” has got politicians belonging to rival camps fighting on the social media, besides two police complaints slapped against the “offender” at Mumbai and Delhi, respectively.
It all started after Das’s video, filmed at his recent show at Washington’s iconic Kennedy Centre, went viral. In the six-minute clip, Das was seen describing two contrasting faces of the country and referring to many controversial topics — from the farmers’ protests to pollution — to underscore the duality of India.
The satirist, who said his comments weren’t intended to insult the country, found backing from TMC’s Mahua Moitra as well as Congress leaders Kapil Sibal and Shashi Tharoor. However, Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi accused Das of “vilifying the nation”. — TNS
