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. I think nobody has been able to pull off action the way Ajay has done in Shivaay. It will be a visual treat for everyone. He (Ajay) called me and said come to office. 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.

    @kamra: same can be said abt u. coz Ajay is a hindu actor u r pointing out silly things. had he been some khan..u wud have praised him to the sky. so whats wrong if bakts do it...when a congi or aaptard like u does the opposite. many films have come showing pak in good light, n pak actors in good light hoping that they will change..but cowards r cowards all the time ..they wont. now it has come to a point where army is @ stake..this is heights of patience thats the reason w country wants to ban them..endorsing tobacco n all r silly things when comapred to army and nation. n he did what he feels. he also supported ADHM and RAEES release. he said he will work with pak actors in future once the war situation is done with. when u cant suport ur country u have no right to point out others. support the country u live in or live in the country u support

    Indian express should not spread rumours based on speculations. Also what are they trying to report here anyway. Thats height of stupidity in journalism.

    Bhakts so called patriot Ajay Devgn is having stani character in Shivaay.on one side he is talking against stan artists and on other hand he has stani character who is shown positive in his film.where is his patriotism?he also went to stan to promote his film Omkara ten years back after Mumbai train blasts.he endorses tobbaco and gutka products(pan bahar) because of which large number of people die every year even more than terrorists kill.but for bhakts he will always be patriotic as he is hindu.if he was muslim he would have faced huge criticism like Khans and would have been anti national for them.
