Created by Rangita Pritish Nandy, Four More Shots Please follows the life of four friends — played by Kirti Kulhari, Sayani Gupta, Maanvi Gagroo and Bani J — and their relationships, work-life conflicts, ambitions, and anxieties in a male-dominated society.
The series will compete in the best comedy category against Brazil’s Ninguem ta Olhando (Nobody’s Looking), UK’s Back to Life, and Israel’s Fifty.
“Some great news coming in… #FourMoreShotsPlease nominated for #InternationalEmmyAwards2020,” tweeted Gagroo. “OH HI. We EMMY NOMINATED,” wrote Bani J on Twitter.
Mathur has been nominated in the best performance by an actor category for Amazon’s Made in Heaven, which reflects the lives of upscale modern India narrated through the eyes of two wedding planners.
His fellow nominees are Billy Barratt in UK’s Responsible Child, Guido Caprino in Italian series 1994, and Raphael Logam in Brazil’s Impuros (Impure) season two.
