Vir Das, stand-up comedian and actor, who was nominated for the International Emmy Awards for his Netflix comedy special "Vir Das: For India" in the comedy segment, lost out to "Call My Agent" Season 4 from France in the comedy category.

The 43-year-old, who has been in news back home for his "I Come From Two Indias" monologue, said he loved the French drama.

"I was nominated for best comedy at the International Emmy Awards, for jokes. Call My Agent, a gigantic beautiful show I love won. But I got this medal, and ate this fantastic salad with a very interesting crispy cheese topping. It was an honour to represent my country. Thanks so much to the @iemmys For India. It's always for India. #VirDasForIndia," he wrote on Instagram.


Das also shared two photographs, one of his Emmy nomination medal and certificate and the other, of his meal.
