This will be Das’ third collaboration with Netflix after two previous specials, Abroad Understanding and Losing It. According to Netflix, “Vir will opine on various issues, including Indian customs and beliefs, sensibilities, popular culture, movies, and heroes.
“In his earlier project with Amazon Prime Video India, Jestination Unknown, Vir travelled the length and breadth of the country. He even performed at towns like Patiala, Lucknow, and Leh, and these experiences have helped him for his current special.”
