Ansari will perform his latest show “Road to Nowhere” in Mumbai and Delhi on May 24 and 26.
Indian American actor, comedian, producer and writer Aziz Ansari is all set to make his first ever tour of India this summer.
Ansari, known for his Oscar and Emmy-winning Netflix series Master of None and several hit shows, will be performing at his parents’ native land for the first time ever. His debut tour will kick off in Mumbai, after which he will have a show in Delhi, before moving southward to Australia.
During his India tour, Ansari will be performing his latest show, Road to Nowhere. Ansari began his tour in February this year, after what can be described as a tumultuous 2018, during which he faced a sexual misconduct allegation by a woman.
