Actor-comic Vir Das to turn his world tour into a 90-min documentary a la the music band One Direction

Now, we hear, Vir wants to follow in the footsteps of international musicians like Justin Bieber and One Direction, and make a documentary of his tour.
He tells hitlist, "I am kicked about putting this together. I begin [my tour] in the US next month and want to capture the essence of what comedy can do.
The documentary should release next year, as a theatrical. It will be an experiential film, made under 90 minutes, interspersed with performances and behind-the-scenes details," he says.
