Vir Das to write Hindi comedy for the first time

Titled Hasmukh, this comedy series co-produced by Nikhil Advani and directed by Nikhil Gonsalves.


One of the popular stand-up comedians and actor, Vir Das, who has almost explored all the realm of entertainment always keeps the card up to his sleeves to surprise his audience period.

After being crowned the first Indian to tour the entire world with his comedy stand up act The Boarding Das, he is all set with another chapter showcasing his dark side. Vir will be seen in a dark thriller with a splash of comedy series Hasmukh co-produced by Nikhil Advani and directed by Nikhil Gonsalves.

This would be the first time Vir will be seen in such an intense genre series. The icing on the cake is Vir has conceptualised and co-written the story and the script.

Over the years he has been associated with comedy stand up acts, comedy films and gained popularity out of it. Other than performing on comedy acts he also writes his own lines and scripts. This would be the first time Vir got himself associated with a script that is so intense, dark and belongs to a genre opposite to what he has done so far.

Vir has written a multitude of scripts for live and scripted shows in the English language, but writing Hasmukh was challenging for him is the first time he has written dark humour comedy in Hindi. It drained him completely since he didn't want the script fall flat on completion. He took his time off from other projects and went into isolation to write the script.
