Aditya Roy Kapur, who’s riding high on success post his musical blockbuster, Aashiqui 2, was the first choice of the makers of Amit Sahni Ki List. But the title role Amit Sahni eventually fell into the lap of Vir Das.
Producer Tina Nagpaul, who makes her debut as a producer with Amit Sahni Ki List, confirms, “Yes, my first choice was Aditya Roy Kapur considering he has a huge female fan following and he has proved his mettle as an actor with the musical blockbuster Aashiqui 2. But then I realised that Vir is apt for the role and perfectly suits for the character, Amit Sahni. I loved his performance on TV shows and felt that was really exciting. He’s done a superb job in Delhi Belly.”
