Bollywood actor and comedian Vir Das who is presently gearing up for his final act in Delhi of the Boarding Das world tour, has been honoured with a doctorate for his incredible achievements in the world of performing arts.
Actor Vir Das who has studied from Knox in Galesburg, Illinois has been conferred with the prestigious title of Dr. Vir Das by his ex-university making it an exceptional achievement for an actor-comedian.
He is known for bringing an American style to topics rooted in contemporary Indian culture. The ceremony is scheduled to take place in June 2018.
Talking about this honour Vir tells, “Knox was this wonderful place that catered to kids like me who couldn’t otherwise afford to study in the US. They had an amazing faculty that made me love performing. They took an economics student and turned him into an actor and comedian. I’m not sure I’m even remotely deserving of this honour.”
