You talk about fine stand-up acts in India and the first name that comes to your mind is of Vir Das. He is supremely talented and can crack you up within seconds. His ‘The Boarding World Tour’, in which he traveled across 6 continents and more than 26 countries, gained him a huge fan following. And now the man is back, adding another feature to his hat.
Signing a new show with ABC, Vir will soon be seen in a Warner Brothers’ dramedy series weekly, ‘Whiskey Cavalier’. The show will be both action-packed and a comedy at the same time, tracing the life of tough but tender FBI super agent, Will Chase aka Whiskey Cavalier. Vir will be seen playing one of the main leads named Jai Datta in the series. Not many know this, but Vir shot the pilot episode of the show at the beginning of the year in Prague.
First, it was Priyanka Chopra who made her way in the West like a boss with Quantico and Vir seems to be following the same steps. When Vir was asked about this new venture he said, “I had such a good time shooting the pilot. It’s an exciting time to bring Indian voices to American television. This is a comedy team and a cast that is the right mix of laughs and action. I’m looking forward to saving the world with some hilarious people.
It was something that the universe sent my way while I was on tour in the US. I ended up meeting Bill and the team and we found this character together,” he added.
This Thursday I thought I’d scare the hell out of you. Throwback to one of the most fun things I’ve ever shot. A dance anthem for shitty male dancers like myself. Tag someone you want to NACHO ðŸ˜‹
Well, Priyanka Chopra’s loss with ‘Quantico’ being cancelled turned out to be fruitful for Vir. America beware, you have another Indian all set to take your job!
