Vir Das gets harassed by his elderly neighbour, shares the ordeal on social media

The coronavirus pandemic has forced people to maintain social distancing. However, the troubles have brought people closer than ever before. Sadly, Vir Das had to face some hostile behaviour from his elderly neighbour. It seems he had a verbal brawl with him and the latter also threatened police action. He also sneezed at him. This happened after he asked his neighbour to maintain the social distancing norms and stay six feet away. He posted a video of the incident on his Twitter handle. He tweeted, “Lockdown Neighbour. I was giving my friend Kavi who lives three houses down from me some dinner. We were waiting for it to get cooked 15 feet away from each-other. Me on my doorstep, him out. This happened.” He had posted a video of the same, which he has now removed as the matter has been resolved.

Many advised him to move to a new place once the lockdown got over. He wrote, “I’m NOT moving sir. I like my home. My landlord supports me, and we’ve dealt with him for months. The only reason I posted the video is because if he goes and says anything false…many many media outlets will carry it regardless. So unfortunately I have to be careful and record.” Also Read – Delhi High Court declines to grant interim stay on Vir Das’ Hasmukh

Vir Das said that hostile behaviour from that old man was not a new development. According to him, he is a regular offender. In his statement, the actor stated, “We have tried polite conversation, legal notices, recording these episodes before, telling him categorically we would post it, then letting it go, everything. I finally posted it on my social media because if not, I knew he would do it yet again. Truthfully, I was just really angry last night. We took it quietly for eight months, and something different was needed.” Also Read – Delhi High Court issues notice to Netflix over stay-order plea on Vir Das’ web series, Hasmukh

The main petition seeking permanent injunction on airing of the show is pending and listed for hearing in July. Netflix, represented by advocate Saikrishna Rajagopal, said in the court that an injunction on the show would be contrary to freedom of speech and expression guaranteed under the Constitution.

It has argued that there are several judgments which say lawyers as a class cannot be defamed.
