Sharing her happiness with followers on Instagram, the actress wrote, “OMGGGGG I still can’t believe it. Feel so so honoured to be nominated at the International Emmys alongside such esteemed artists. This one is really special and more so because it is for a character I am very very close to, Vartika Chaturvedi and for my favourite show #DelhiCrime2. This is for all of us in #DelhiCrime."
The other nominees from the category are Connie Nielsen, Billie Piper and Karla Souza.
While the versatile Jim Sarbh earned his place in the category of Best Performance by an Actor for his outstanding performance that we saw in the SonyLIV web series Rocket Boys.
Turning the weird days into a sign of relief with this exciting news, on social media Jim shared, “I was having quite a weird few days, and then all the pieces wrapped up neatly and I heaved a huge sigh of relief, played a game of sweaty basketball, cycled home in the cold sweet rain, went in for a shower, and came out to all these messages and calls. I was an hour late to watch Dirty Harry with a neighbour, so I ran up, told him about the nom, and then we proceeded to watch the movie. ‘Do you feel lucky, punk?’ Yes. Honoured to be nominated for the International @iemmys amongst such talented artists. I loved playing Dr. Bhabha. Rocket Boys is deeply etched in my mind and heart. ❤️ @pannuabhay @nikkhiladvani Big love to everyone who helped create the show. The actor’s fellow nominees include Gustavo Bassani, Martin Freeman and Jonas Karlsson."
For the second time, the actor-turned-comedian Vir Das has been nominated now for his Netflix special Vir Das: Landing. Expressing his happiness with his fans on Instagram, he penned down saying, “WHAT!!!!!! I got nominated for an Emmy award for best comedy 😊 my second iEmmy nomination. To everyone who worked on this show Vir Das Landing, I am SO proud of you, and so grateful to @netflix_in for letting me tell my story. Off we go! #VirDasLanding @iemmys well…this is a weird full circle 😊"
