Vir Das is on a mission to make the world smile
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.”
