What made Milap Zaveri cast comedian Vir Das in a revenge thriller?
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when one says, Vir Das? A comedian who can make you laugh till you cry right? Yes, but we have yet not seen the other side of the coin. Very few of is know that Vir Das actually started with theatre at a much younger age and later got into films and comedy. The audience got a slice of his recent role in his first ever drama on screen in 31st october and by the looks of the trailer, in his first ever short film Raakh Vir seems to be playing a rather dark character.
Director Milap Zaveri who is also a good friend of Vir’s, choose him after seeing an old tape of Vir from his theater days. He was very convinced after seeing the tape that Vir can really do Non-comedy role and nail it with much conviction. After watching the trailer of the short film we are so sure that Vir is definitely is a versatile actor and there is more than just a comedian.
