India at Emmys 2023

With Vir Das winning his first Emmy, Ektaa Kapoor receiving her honorary, and the nominated Shefali Shah and Jim Sarbh attending the award show, India at Emmys 2023 shone bright! 

After a huge heartbreak and disappointment with the Men's Cricket World Cup, we got a little happiness with the news from all the way from New York where India at Emmys 2023 made us all proud. Vir Das, our beloved comedian won his first-ever International Emmy. The actor-comedian was nominated for an International Emmy for the second time for his Netflix special Vir Das: Landing, which won in the Comedy category in a tie with UK's Derry Girls season 3. He was elated while sharing the news on the gram and dedicated the award it to India and Indian comedy. 

Meanwhile, producer Ektaa Kapoor was honored with the International Emmy Directorate Award at the 51st International Emmys for her trailblazing career and impact on the Indian television landscape. Her contribution to Indian Television is humongous and this honor just celebrates that. She dedicated the ward to her country as well. 

Even though Shefali Shah and Jim Sarbh missed out on the International Emmy for Best Actress/Actor for their performances in Delhi Crime and Rocket Boys to Mexican actor Karla Souza in Dive and Martin Freeman in The Responder, respectively yet their nomination is a huge stepping stone towards India's honor. And both of them are sharing the deeds while attending the ceremony.
