Vir Das: Landing is Vir’s fourth Netflix special. It is a show about what it means to be truly global while looking for home. To carry your country across the world with you and to find your feet. A show about growing up in India, seeing the globe, love troubles, colossal failures, social media madness, the perils of outrage, unplanned drugs, war-zone boarding schools, metaphorical mathematical equations, the current state of comedy, getting nominated, getting intoxicated, and ultimately just getting situated.
It is currently streaming on Netflix.
