Vir Das Has a Snide Comment on Will Smith’s Visit to India
MUMBAI (ANI) – Hollywood star Will Smith’s recent visit to India weeks after slapping Chris Rock at Oscars 2022 has caught everyone’s attention. Like several netizens, actor and stand-up comedian Vir Das, too, commented about the same.
Taking to Instagram, Das welcomed Smith with a joke, indirectly making a reference to Indian comedians who have faced lawsuits for hurting the sentiments of people with their acts. In fact, in 2021, Das landed in a legal soup over his controversial ‘I come from two Indias’ performance.
“Will Smith is in India? Good. He can learn to stop slapping comedians with his hands and start slapping them with legal cases,” Das posted.
Das’s “welcome note” for Smith garnered a lot of reactions from social media users.
“LOL,” a netizen commented.
“Hahahha savage,” another one wrote.
It is believed to be Smith’s first public appearance since his Oscars controversy. The purpose of his trip has not been publicized.
