Until 2017, Vir Das was world famous only in India. That’s not an aspersion, it’s a fact. Vir was ‘that comedy guy’ whose shows would be house full and tickets would be sold out early. In fact, Vir also gave India some of its best comedians to date, all groomed through his company, Weirdass Comedy. The comedian, who is also a writer, musician and an actor, was cast in Bollywood comedies like Delhi Belly (2011) and Go, Goa Gone (2013), and he also played a romantic hero in some forgettable films like Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi (2017).
