In the note, Chopra Jonas, 41, and her team at the banner said Vir Das’ win was a “well deserved and wonderful accomplishment”. “Dear Vir, wishing you huge congratulations on your Emmy win! With love, Priyanka, Mary and your friends at Purple Pebble Pictures,” it read.
This was the second International Emmy nomination and maiden win in the segment for Das, who shared the trophy with popular British teen sitcom Derry Girls season three.
