Almost a year after revealing that he was set to bring forth a dark comedy thriller along with Nikkhil Advani, Vir Das has shared his first look from Hasmukh, with mid-day. Das, who plays the part of a stand-up comedian by the day, and a serial killer at night, sports a rural appearance in the series.


The comedian, who has also penned the series, tells mid-day, "This is a character I have never explored since he is from the hinterlands.
