Vir Das is getting ready to pump some iron for his next Bollywood project.

A friend of Vir says, “He has been asked to be on a strict diet and do rigorous training. He is leaving no stone unturned when it comes to getting into top shape.” “I have been asked to undergo a physical transformation,” Vir laughs and adds, “I am basically undoing 10 years of my lifestyle as a comedian!”
