Das was also extremely excited to share a snapshot of a digital billboard of his Netlfix show Losing It beaming at New York’s iconic Times Square.

“I’m so sorry to do this. It’s hard to be ‘cool’ about this one. I’m excited and grateful. If you told me three years ago that I’d get a billboard on Times Square, I’d tell you that you were losing it,” he tweeted.

Whiskey Cavalier makes Das just the second Indian after actress Priyanka Chopra to feature in a regular American television show. Chopra starred in the hit show Quantico, which was premiered on ABC in 2015.

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