Vir Das in and as <i>Hasmukh.</i>

The trailer of Netflix original series Hasmukh starring Vir Das has been released. The clip shows Vir Das, who plays Hasmukh, as a young man from Saharanpur who wants to be a comedian. However, there’s a price to pay as he realises that before every stage performance, he needs to murder someone to be able to perform.

Slated to release on 17 April, Hasmukh also stars Ranvir Shorey, Manoj Pahwa, Ravi Kishan, Amrita Bagchi, Suhail Nayyar, Inaamulhaq and Raza Murad and is directed by Nikhil Gonsalves. Watch the trailer here:

Vir Das, who plays the titular role, said, “Performing in front of a live audience is extremely different from being in a fictional film or series. I’m back on screen playing a strange and unusual character, so I’m excited. He's super awkward, soft-spoken, always mild...until he murders or gets on stage. Stand-up comedians will relate to Hasmukh’s journey… well, most of it at least.”

“We’re all looking for innovative ways to make people laugh, but this guy takes it to the next level. The trailer should give you a sneak peek into what I’m talking about, but just wait and watch!”
