Vir Das shares Priyanka Chopra's heartfelt note after Emmy win, thanks her for paving way for others

Vir Das, who was awarded the International Emmy for Comedy for ‘Vir Das: Landing,’ shared on X (formerly Twitter) images of the congratulatory bouquet sent by Priyanka Chopra. Expressing his gratitude for Priyanka’s kind gesture, Vir, an admirer of the actor and her career decisions, hailed her as 'awesome.’

Vir Das tweeted, ‘Thank you @priyankachopra for the flowers and for every door you’ve opened for the rest of us. You’re awesome!’

The handwritten note sent along with the flowers read, ‘Dear Vir, wishing you huge congratulations on your Emmy win! Such a well deserved and wonderful accomplishment! With love, Priyanka, Mary and your friends at Purple Pebble Pictures.’

Purple Pebble Pictures is a film production company established by actor and producer Priyanka.

Earlier this year, Vir addressed comparisons to Priyanka Chopra, highlighting a 'big difference' in their paths to success in the US. He noted performing on shows like ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’, while Priyanka was featured as a guest on those American programs.

In an interview on ‘The Ranveer Show’, he said, ‘(I am) Nowhere even close to the level of Priyanka. Like Priyanka is the global Indian. I walk into a room, and there's like 'you're Indian, you like Priyanka Chopra, no?' So that is a thing now. (Have been on Tonight Show etc.) But not like Priyanka Chopra. I have performed on the Tonight Show (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), Priyanka Chopra is on the couch. It is a big difference, you know.’

Vir further added, ‘I could not have more respect for what she's done. And when she says it is hard, I fully understand how hard it is for me now. And therefore how much harder it would have been for her to break down the initial door.’

In 2022, Priyanka attended Vir's Los Angeles show, and called him ‘brave and inspiring’. In return, he thanked her for 'opening the doors' for him.

‘What a day! With Awesome friends watching an awesome friend do what he does best! @virdas you are so brave and so inspiring to me! Not to mention had me in tears laughing!! Thanks for having us,’ Priyanka captioned her Instagram post.

Vir replied, ‘Thank you for coming! Thank you for opening all the doors for the rest of us. And thank you for always being awesome and cool and funny! I admire you so much.’
