Stand-up comedian and actor Vir Das has commented on Will Smith’s recent visit to India. In a post on Instagram, he made a reference to Smith’s Oscar controversy in which Smith had slapped presenter and comedian Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.
Last month, Smith shocked millions around the world when he slapped presenter-comedian Chris Rock onstage at the 94th Academy Awards.
Last seen in Judd Apatow’s Netflix comedy movie The Bubble, Das had earlier also talked about the Oscar controversy when one person said that he should also face the Chris Rock treatment. The person had tweeted, “Someone needs to do a will Smith on this one. He would totally deserve it too.”
Das had responded, “You’re welcome to buy a front row ticket and try at my next show. Just know I slap back. Also once you’ve spent that front row money, your wife will probably slap you for ruining her evening. Cheers.”
