TMC MP Derek O’Brien has invited stand-up comedian Vir Das to Kolkata, a day after his Bengaluru show was canceled at the last minute following protests from right-wing Hindu groups.

The protest groups claimed the show, which was to be held on Thursday, would hurt Hindus’ religious feelings.

“Hello @thevirdas Come to #Kolkata. We would love to have you here this winter. DM me please. Let’s get this going,” the TMC leader in Rajya Sabha said in a tweet.

Das later uploaded a video to Twitter to discourage any assumptions about his content.

“I made this video after one of my shows, Just in Case. I have no interest in media goggles or being used for headlines. I am an artist. I shouldn’t be on the news. A lot of assumptions are made about my content. I trust that my art and my audience speak for me. #TrustTheAudience,” Das tweeted.

Das’s monologue “I come from two Indias” had caused a stir a year ago when he was criticized for defaming the country.
