Actor comedian Vir Das is taking his acting a little more seriously. The actor is now set to play serial killer in Hasmukh, the first film from his home production, Weirdass Company. 

While Das' company initially began as a 'comedy consultancy' looking to create and co-ordinate content for the stand-up comedy scene and live shows, the actor has other plans. Weirdass Productions is now looking to branch out into creating content for various entertainment platforms. 

The company began with the production of Das' Netflix original, Abroad Understanding. The company will also produce the film, Hasmukh, starring Das himself, to be released later this year. In addition, there is Happy Patel, a non-fiction web-series which will also be streamed later this year.  

Talking about the initiative, Das commented, "This year is a good phase for my company Weirdass Comedy, we’re venturing into production with two big projects this year. Hasmukh is soon going on the floor; I’m also portraying the role of a serial killer in the movie. By the second half, we will start work on Happy Patel and a non-fiction web series. The idea is to build me into an all-rounder content creator with focus on my acting, production, stand-up and writing."
