"I have been getting innumerable messages, emails which is something I hadn't expected in the numbers it has come in. Many people had asked me much before if this special too would be performed live someday and now it's confirmed that it would happen this September."

Abroad Understanding Live will be a six-city tour, including Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, Kolkata and Pune, where fans can expect a taste of Indian comedy.
