Vir Das writes, ‘That video is a satire about the duality of two very different Indias. Like in any country there is light and darkness, good and evil. None of this is a secret.

Never stop focusing on what makes us great.’ vb Let us tell you that after Mumbai, a complaint has been lodged against Vir Das in Delhi’s Tilak Marg police station as well.
