Stand up comedian turned actor Vir Das, known for playing the role of Arup in the movie Delhi Belly which released in 2011, is a busy man these days. “There’s lot that is keeping me occupied. Post Delhi Belly I have completed almost six films. There’s a serious drama with Tanuja Chandra called Raakh, a kids film with Kunal Roy Kapur called Golu Pappu, Super Se Upar — a love story with Kirti Kulhari,  Amit Sahni Ki List which is a rom-com starring almost 10 girls and also another zombie comedy.

So, starting January 2013, I should have a release every two months,” says the 33-year-old.

Ask him how life changed post Delhi Belly and pat comes the reply, “Life has really really changed. It has been like a booster shot to my career. I got many scripts, so had to pick and choose. Also, time and privacy has gone away.”

He further adds, “I shot 290 days last year. Now I don’t want to start any films till December 15 as I want to do live shows. Believe it or not, I’ve shot for 20 songs in the last one year” Moving on, Das will be seen showcasing his singing talent in one of his upcoming films. Talking about it, he says, “I will be singing a song composed by my comedy rock band Alien Chutney for my upcoming film Amit Sahni ki List. It is  is an anti- love song which is quite funny.”

Lastly, shifting focus on his personal life we ask him if he is single to which he replies, “I am not single. I’m all settled and happy with my girlfriend. However, I don’t wanna talk about her. All I can tell you is that she is my biggest support. She is the first who gets to hear my jokes.”
