Abroad Understanding Trailer: India's First Netflix Production Featuring Vir Das Looks Hilarious

The Netflix Comedy Specials have previously been shot with the likes of Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Russell Peters, Chris Tucker to name a few!


Updated:April 19, 2017, 5:29 PM IST

Vir Das was one of the frontrunners when it came to comedy as a profession in India. Being a pioneer of his space, Vir Das soon took Indian comedy beyond Indian diaspora and put it right there on the world map. Soon after, several comedians have toured various cities across the globe earning growing freedom and popularity.

Come 2017, and Vir Das is now at an all new high. World's biggest digital streaming platform, Netflix will debut its first ever Indian comedian Special on 25th April. The show titled Abroad Understanding marks the debut of an Indian original production on Netflix featuring Vir Das. While several other Indian filmmakers and production houses have cracked deals with Netflix in the past few months, this debut will be the first for India on this platform.

The Netflix Comedy Specials have previously been shot with the likes of Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Russell Peters, Chris Tucker to name a few!

The show was shot last year in November in two cities, New Delhi and New York City in front of a live audience. The show as one can see speaks about cultures, politics, religion and much more as one can make out in this close to 90 seconds trailer. The show is a growing landmark for Indian comedy and artists who are truly going global with their art and caliber.

Let's see what April 25 has in store for us.
