The Delhi Belly actor reveals he is playing a Pakistani hacker in the film. “It’s not a negative role. I am playing a Pakistani hacker. I am under contract, I can’t reveal much details about the film,” he added.

He said that he does not think anyone else has been able to pull off action the way Ajay has done in this flick. “I think he (Ajay) has been able to pull off the story very well.

His team of writers narrated the film and I liked it,” Vir said.

Apart from Shivaay, Vir Das will also appear in 31st October, a film based on the emergency period in India. The film was supposed to be released on October 7 but now has been rescheduled to October 21 because of some cuts demanded by the Delhi High Court. Meanwhile, the actor is concentrating on his big film this year in which he would share the screen space with Ajay Devgn for the very first time.
