Actor Vir Das, who is known for his stand-up comedy and roles in flicks such as Delhi Belly (2011) and Badmaash Company (2010), strangely feels that he is not a part of Bollywood. When asked how he feels to be in an industry that has completed 100 years, Vir says, “At times, I feel I am not a part of it. My USP (unique selling point) is that I am the outsider of every industry. In the film industry, I am considered as a stand up comedian and vice-versa.”

The 33-year-old will be seen in the upcoming flick Go Goa Gone. Talking about the movie, he shares, “I play Luv, who is trying to turn around his life after his break up, but things don’t go his way. It’s basically a story of two idiots and a straight guy. These two idiots- me and Kunal (Khemu) tag along with Anand Tiwari who is going to Goa for his presentation. Once in Goa, they are invited to an underground Russian rave party and the plot progresses.”

As far as the genre of the movie is concerned, he says, “It’s the first Zombie-Comedy in India. Throughout the movie, the actors and the audience are at the same pace because they haven’t ever seen a zombie. The audience gets to know things as the characters get to know.”

Actor Saif Ali Khan, who is also the producer of the movie, will be seen playing a cameo in the flick. Talking about his role, Vir shares, “He has done a fantastic job. His is one of the toughest roles, as he plays a blonde Russian. I think with his performance, he walks away with the movie.”
