The West is calling Bollywood! Many of our artistes have been flocking to Hollywood with brilliant opportunities. Take Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra for example. They've been acing their presence in the West. And the newest entrant to join the bandwagon is none other than funnyman Vir Das! The actor/comedian will soon be rubbing shoulders with some of the biggest names in the comic genre. We mean Amy Schumer, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Aziz Ansari and David Chappelle! That's not all, the first Indian artiste to have his very own Netflix show. That's right. Netflix has announced a special that will feature Das. The special is set to release this April.
In case you weren't aware of this, Netflix has a specials show that features some of the funnybones of the industry. They have a stand-up which is recorded and aired on all mediums of the portal i.e. computer, mobile phones and more. It surely is a big deal as Netflix is a huge medium to receive exposure. Plus, with the calibre Das has as a stand up artiste, it will benefit the comedian furthermore. The specials brand has names such as Amy Schumer, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Aziz Ansari and David Chappelle! Just recently the funny lady of Hollywood, Schumer quoted in a statement, "Very happy to be a part of the Netflix family for this special.

The world of comedy on Netflix just got bigger.
