Mumbai: From one scene to lead role - life has come full circle for Vir Das. The stand-up comedian Vir Das`s Bollywood entry was not so glorified - he started off with doing one scene in 2007 hit “Namastey London”.
However, the interesting part was that he shot his first scene with Rishi Kapoor, in which he played a prospective groom for Katrina Kaif (who played Rishi`s on-screen daughter). And that was his only scene in the film.
In his seven-year acting journey, Vir climbed up the success ladder and during the course of time his roles continued to lengthen with films like adult comedy "Delhi Belly", zombie movie "Go Goa Gone" and thriller "Revolver Rani".
Now, tentatively titled “Khanna Patel” will see him in the lead role and this time he plays Rishi`s on-screen son.
According to a source, when Vir learnt that he`ll be playing Rishi`s son, the first thought that crossed his mind was that how seven years ago he had done is first scene with him. It was indeed a surreal moment for him.
