After Aziz Ansari, Hasan Minhaj and Vir Das, stand-up comedian Aditi Mittal is set to do a special stand-up show, Things They Wouldn't Let Me Say, for Netflix.

The show will debut on the video-streaming giant on July 18 to its over 100 million members across 190 countries globally.

"Having a platform like Netflix is a dream come true for anyone in entertainment and comedy today... The journey of this show has been absolutely exhilarating. I hope Netflix fans all over the world will enjoy the show as much as I have in making it," Mittal said in a statement.

Mittal, one of the first women in India to do stand-up comedy, touches up issues like gender, sex and notions about beauty in her shows.

Her Netflix show is gender revolution rich with taboos of being a woman in India today.

Swati Shetty, Director of Content Acquisition, Netflix said, "Aditi's success reflects the growing pool of Indian stand-up comedy talent that is already gaining international recognition and we are proud to showcase Aditi's bold wit and humour on the Netflix service."
