Vir Das's latest Twitter post, thanking Priyanka Chopra has received much love from the Internet and how. The 38-year-old comedian called the Quantico actress a 'maverick' and a 'star' and thanked her saying: "I'd just like to say Priyanka Chopra is a maverick and a star, who has opened the doors for small fish like me to do comparatively microscopic things. So if you feel the need to write an article about both of us, write one that gives her credit and appreciation, because I do." The reason behind the Delhi Belly actor's thank you note is apparently because he has been signed by ABC for a new hour-long weekly comedy-drama series, titled Whiskey Cavalier, wherein he will be seen playing an FBI agent named Jai Datta. The show will be produced by Warner Brothers.
