Co­me­dian-actor Vir Das (right) is on a mis­sion to spread cheer all around the globe. Vir, who was last seen in the big-ticket ac­tion film Shivaay (2016) and be­fore that in Delhi Belly (2011) and Go Goa Gone (2013), is all set to travel the world with his lat­est standup rou­tine. He has plans to per­form in Nige­ria, the African country that doesn’t at­tract many over­seas artists be­cause of po­lit­i­cal ten­sions.

“The en­tire idea behind hav­ing this tour is to bring a smile [on the face of] ev­ery in­di­vid­ual. It makes me happy when I see peo­ple laugh their heart out and for­get all their wor­ries. One of the ma­jor rea­sons for me to visit Nige­ria is to do the same,” says Vir. He is also try­ing to take the show to Brazil af­ter Nige­ria.

Vir be­gan tour­ing in March and has per­formed in cities such as New York, Chicago, Denver and Los An­ge­les in the US. The Euro­pean leg of the tour be­gins in June. “This ex­pe­ri­ence is some­thing I can never for­get,” says Vir. “The love that I’ve re­ceived so far is be­yond ex­pres­sion. I’ve been to the US ear­lier, but this ex­pe­ri­ence is dif­fer­ent as it’s the first place of my world tour. I see fans ap­pre­ci­at­ing me, and I’m to­tally look­ing for­ward to my next desti­na­tion, Europe.”
