Complaint against Vir Das for ‘derogatory language’ against India

Comedian and actor Vir Das landed in controversy after a video edited from his recent performance in the US went viral on social media. Netizens slammed him for insulting India in the clip wherein he reportedly stated that he comes from ‘two Indias’, one where Indian men worship women during the day and another one where they gang-rape women at night.

A complaint has been filed against Vir Das at Tilak Marg Police Station for allegedly using derogatory language during the event. Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut had also slammed Vir Das in an Instagram post. She had penned, “When you generalise all Indian men as gang-rapists it gives rise and encouragement to racism and bullying against Indians all over the world…after Bengal Famine Churchill famously said, ‘These Indians breed like rabbits they are bound to die like this…’ he blamed Indians’ sex drive/fertility for the death of millions because of hunger… Such creative work targeting an entire race is soft terrorism… strict actions must be taken against such criminals @virdas.”

The comedian has already issued a clarification on the same. Stating that one must not be fooled by the edited snippets, Vir Das wrote, “There has been a sizeable reaction to a video I posted on YouTube. The video is a satire about the duality of two very separate India’s that do different things. Like any nation has a 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 the 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 video and the reason for the applause.”
