Vir goes lean for next

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - AN­JURI NA­YAR SINGH

While ac­tor Vir Das’ (right), fans might find his looks per­fect, the artist is work­ing hard to lose more weight. Das, who will be seen in his up­com­ing film along­side ac­tor Surveen Chawla, will be play­ing the role of a geeky guy, and the role re­quires him to look lanky. “I’ve got a fair bit of weight to lose. I had bulked up for my last film, but the look has to go now. The char­ac­ter has never re­ally worked out or hit a gym, so I need to look lean, so it’s good­bye dairy, carbs and other tasty food for a while,” he says.

Mean­while, the ac­tor is also trav­el­ling to Lon­don, where another film of his is be­ing screened at the Lon­don Film Fes­ti­val. Das es­pe­cially took out time to at­tend the fes­ti­val af­ter a lot of back and forth in the sched­ule. “I’m ex­cited! You won’t nor­mally see me at a se­ri­ous film fes­ti­val. This film is the most dif­fer­ent thing I’ve ever done. I’m play­ing a sar­dar in a drama that tells a story which af­fected so many peo­ple in­clud­ing the fam­ily of the per­son I por­tray. It’s great to get a good re­sponse from the fes­ti­val cir­cuit be­fore the film re­leases in In­dia,” he says.
