Talking about winning at the International Emmy Awards, Vir expressed his excitement and said, “I have immense gratitude, holding the International Emmy for Best Comedy for ‘Vir Das: Landing.’ This one is for my team and for Netflix, without whom this wouldn’t have been possible. This journey has been nothing short of extraordinary, and to win this accolade for my fifth special with Netflix feels like a culmination of passion, perseverance, and the undying support of people around the globe who have given so much love to ‘Vir Das: Landing’.”

He added, “This award is not just a recognition of my work but a celebration of the diverse stories and voices from India. Stories that make us laugh, reflect, and, most importantly, unite. This one is for India, for Indian comedy, and for the community of artists at large.”

Vir Das: Landing marks his fourth Netflix comedy special, presenting a show about what it means to be truly global while searching for home. It explores carrying your country across the world, whatever that country is, and finding your place. The show touches on growing up in India, seeing the globe, love troubles, colossal failures, social media madness, the perils of outrage, unplanned drugs, war-zone boarding schools, metaphorical mathematical equations, the current state of comedy, getting nominated, getting intoxicated, and ultimately finding your place. Emmy 2023: Shefali Shah, Jim Sarbh and Vir Das Earn Nominations at The 75th Award Show.
