Bollywood actor Vir Das is in the news these days for his controversial statement in which he said that people in India worship women during the day and gang-rape them at night. Now the actor has clarified his statement during an interview. The actor says that I made the country laugh for 10 years. I will continue to write love letters to the nation.

In a recent interview to NDTV, Vir Das said, “I think laughter is a celebration and as long as people in the room keep laughing and applauding, it will be a matter of pride. I think if an Indian has a sense of humor and has a satire or has seen my entire video, he will know what has happened.

When Vir Das was asked whether he would avoid such issues while performing next time after so many controversies, in response he said, I have made my country laugh for the last 10 years. I dedicated my life to writing for the country. I am here at the Emmys because I have written a love letter to India. Till I am able to do comedy, I will keep writing love letters to India.

These days the actor is in New York for the Emmy Award. He has been nominated for the International Emmy Award for the Netflix show ‘Veer Das: For India’.

Vir Das recently shared the video of his performance at the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington DC on his YouTube channel. In the six-minute video, Veer spoke about the alleged dual character of Indians in front of the American people. He also said that I come from India, where we worship women during the day and gang-rape at night. His poem Aye Come From 2 India came into the limelight overnight. Many celebs like Ashok Pandit, Raju Srivastava were against Veer while many like Shashi Tharoor and Kapil Sibal came out in his support.
