Vir can also be seen posing with the Emmy Award and wrote, "I hadn't set the thing down for two hours. Which means I hadn't really even looked at it. Got back to the suite. There was this presidential desk in the office. Took a second."

On his return to India, Vir Das expressed his gratitude to the likes of Comedy icon Johnny Lever in whose shadows artists like him have walked.

"I am very happy to bring this home. Now, I have a show in Panchkula, so I will go to Panchkula and then to Bengaluru. This award will tour India like me and I am very excited. We are here because of people who came before us, like Johnny Lever. I would love to do a show with Johnny Lever, as he is my idol. I think he is the greatest live comedy artist. I think hopefully this is the first award for Indian Comedy International but not the last, hopefully, many comedians can win it" Vir Das said.

Das added,"There is love for India in every joke of mine and there will be love in every joke in the future as well. If you love your nation, write about it."The award for the Comedy Category was a tie, with 'Derry Girls Season 3' also receiving the recognition.
