Actor/Comedian Vir Das is all set to write and produce a new series with filmmaker Nikkhil Advani. While the actor is passionate about acting and his stand-up comedy, not many know that he has an amazing flair for writing. He has been penning down his scripts for his tour, The Boarding Das and is currently making waves internationally by being the first Indian comedian to tour the world.
Now, he is all set to collaborate with Nikkhil Advani, who is currently busy with the Saif Ali Khan-starrer Bazaar for a new show and the series will be a dark comedy to be set in Mumbai with a hint of thrill to it. Apart from the fact that the show belongs to the mystery genre, not much is known about the show, but Vir is all set to essay the lead.
On that topic, Vir said, “I had developed a concept and worked around the script. And it was something I wanted to work with someone who would understand the content of it and thus the idea to work with Nikhil came about. When I told him about it, he was indeed excited and was an instant collaboration. It’s a dark comedy. Having a certain element of thrill we can’t reveal the concept per se. We intend to have it as a 10 part series”
The show will be co-produced by Weirdass Comedy and Emmay Entertainment. It’s a dark comedy which will show a very real, gritty world. Currently, Vir and Nikkhil’s team are working on the script and the shooting for the series which will start this September.
