Actor-comedian Vir Das does not shy away from talking his mind and his recent video is getting him all the praise once again. Since the nepotism debate has stirred up a storm on social media, Vir Das is among the few who has voiced out his opinion on the matter. Now, after Vir Das shares a video titled ‘equality in the entertainment industry’ enacting the role of a normal hypocrite star, Manoj Bajpayee and Hansal Mehta re-tweet the video on their timeline.
Taking to his official Twitter handle, Vir Das tweeted a video and wrote, “Equality in the entertainment industry.” The video features Vir Das himself playing the character of a big movie star and how he behaves. The video begins with Vir Das on the phone, having an argument with someone over the phone on how he doesn’t care how many Filmfare awards a writer has won, but wants a line in his dialogue changed. The comedian goes on to ask the person over the phone to ask the director to wait outside his vanity van and mentions that he does not want a third or fourth assistant director outside.
While on the phone, Vir Das in the character of a movie star bosses around, asking the spot boy for some refreshments. He also talks about replacing a female co-star as he does not find her pretty enough and shares how he is the one who decides who plays the heroine. Moving on, in a shocking turn of events, Vir Das informs the person on call to hold on so he can make a video for the internet. Calling out hypocrisy, Vir Das continues, “Hey guys, Nepotism is terrible. There should be equality in actors at all times.” As Vir Das shared the alarming video on Twitter, agreeing to the actor, filmmaker Hansal Mehta and actor Manoj Bajpayee re-tweeted the video and shared it on their timeline.
