The Primetime Emmys are often criticized for only recognizing white people in general and not actors or artists from other countries. Well, despite the criticism, this time around the nominees surprisingly included a few Indian celebrities.

Among them was Bollywood actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the Best Performance by an Actor category for his role in Serious Men that had been directed by Sudhir Mishra.

Disney+ Hotstar crime web series Aarya directed by Ram Madhvani and Vir Das have also been nominated for this year's Emmys. The actor and stand-up comedian was nominated for his Netflix stand-up comedy special, Vir Das: For India.

It was surely a welcome change and he will now definitely attend the Emmys ceremony. Now, while most actors who attend such prestigious award shows end up wearing really costly and exquisite designer clothes, it seems Vir Das is not going to follow suit. Instead, the artist, in an Instagram post, asked new Indian designers to style him in their clothes.

In what appears to be an attempt to keep things simple while also promoting Indian designers who are still trying to make a name for themselves, Vir's post was captioned, "New Designers...listen up. Correct address: makevirlookpresentable@weirdasscomedy.com"

The post clearly won the hearts of many fans with people flooding the comments sections.
