Usually, guest appearances or short cameos in a movie are given special mention when the credits roll down, but for Vir Das’s short cameo in Shaadi Ke Side Effects will be slotted under a ‘senseless appearance’ when the credits roll down.
The stand-up comedian is apparently in talks with the makers of the movie to officially carry that in credits instead of ‘Special Appearance’ as it fits the tone of the film.
“It was one of those roles where (director) Saket Chaudhary came over after his whole draft was done and said, ‘I want you in this film’. I made a deal with him saying that I would do it if he would let me be totally ridiculous, completely misbehave, and called it a ‘senseless appearance’,” Vir said in a statement.
Thus started the process of creating a ‘character’ named Manav for the movie which stars Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan in the lead roles.
“Manav is the most irritating and intellectually challenged person I can think of… We went off page, improvised everything and it turned out to be something wonderfully stupid,” Vir added.
The movie will be releasing in February.
