Vir Das, who is in high spirit, riding on his second US Comedy Tour, will be seen in a serious character in his upcoming film 31st October, a biopic opposite Soha Ali Khan.

Vir had the chance to meet some real-life victims of the October 31 riots. It all started when a sardar, who had come to witness Vir’s show, met and informed him that he is related to a family who are riot victims. The guy informed him that his grandfather had survived the 1984 riot and moved to Canada after that.

 

Intrigued with this, Vir took time out from his tight schedule and paid a visit to the family. He had a good conversation with them and felt glad that he got a chance to meet the family. They, too, asked Vir about his experience working on 31st October.

When contacted, Vir said, “While in Vancouver for a show I was approached by a guy who came to me talking about my upcoming film 31st October. He told me about his grandfather who has witnessed the incident of 31st October back in 1984 and wanted me to meet them.I was apprehensive at first because I understand that it would have been a difficult time for them back then and recalling the scenario would be more tough.

However, after meeting them I was happy that they have overcome the obstacle and they were glad to know that a film is being made on the incident. It’s beyond our understanding what these people would’ve gone through. ”
