Vir Das was so impressed with filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s 2006 film, Rang De Basanti, that he decided to take up acting.
“For me, it is very important to believe in the kind of movies I do. Rang De Basanti made me feel good about Indian cinema. The movie instilled in me, a confidence so strong, that I wanted to be a part of the revolution in Bollywood,” Vir said.
The film had Aamir Khan, R Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Siddharth, Soha Ali Khan, Kunal Kapoor, Atul Kulkarni and British actor Alice Patten in the lead roles.
Das’ upcoming movies include Santa Banta, Amit Sahni Ki List and Saxxx ki Dukaan.com among others.
