Comedian, singer and actor Vir Das is back with what he calls his ‘Potcast’ to wish his followers for Christmas and New Year. But the greeting was not simply ‘Merry’ or ‘Happy’ – there was a twist.

In a musical roundup of the year that has been, Das breaks down 2016 into its obvious subtext – “Modi is king”, “eat your f***ing laddoo cause your family is broke”, and “Fawad and friends had to go, because surgical strikes” among other things.

Sitting on a pot, amid fake snow fall, Das effortlessly distorts Christmas carols and hits the bullseye in describing 2016.
