Vir Das, whose career is taking off in a big way in the US, has now decided to spend more time in the country. The actor-comic, who recently finished touring the US for his stage acts, also shot for the pilot episode of a comedy TV show while he was there. In fact, he has also been signed by one of the largest comedy management agencies in the US.
A source close to Vir says, “He will be shuttling between India and USA, and will spend six months in each country. Now that he has been signed by the talent management agency that has represented the likes of Jamie Foxx, Tracy Morgan and Amy Schumer, among others, the probability of him getting more international projects is very high. Hence, he plans to spend a lot more time in the US. He will spend the other half of the year in India to work on his films and comedy shows here.”
Vir confirmed and news, and said, “My first tour to the US was a great success. It’s amazing to know that so many people acknowledge my work far away from home. Plus, it’s great to be managed by this agency. I have some exciting projects coming up internationally.”
The actor is also glad that so far 2016 has been good for him. “I will be making the US my base for a part of the year to devote more time to my work. It’s been a great year so far, and it will be even better in the coming months. I will mostly be going back to the US in July,” he adds.
