And as part of Abroad Understanding, he will take live shows across a number of major cities in the country. Those cities on the list are – Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Chennai and Pune. He has his fans to thank for demand that he have live shows as part of his Netflix show. He said, “While working on it, I had kept my expectations minimum, but the response to the comedy has been overwhelming. Since I was getting several messages and e-mails from viewers asking if Abroad Understanding will ever be performed live, I decided to go ahead with it. It will take place in September.”
