I'm so sorry to do this. It's hard to be 'cool' about this one. I'm excited. If you told me three years ago that I'd get a billboard on Times Square, I'd tell you that you were #LosingIT Now streaming, heart screaming 🙂 on @netflixisajoke . . P.s. take a selfie and send it to me if you're around...kinda bummed I can't be there to see it. A post shared by Vir Das (@virdas) on

Whiskey Cavalier makes him the second Indian after Priyanka Chopra to get the feat after her hit show Quantico premiered on ABC.

Vir said in a statement: "Priyanka Chopra has done extremely well in America and had opened doors for many people. She has become an icon and a recognisable name there. She has paved a way and I'm glad Whiskey Cavalier is happening at a time when there's a growing diversity in the West."

The actor is currently in Prague filming for the show and is set to return to India soon to begin his next project.
