Vir Das’s hilarious jokes have always been able to bring the smile on faces of people. The actor recently tweeted about board exams. “The reason I try and say something nice to kids about their boards is because someone said the same to me when I messed up… and it helped me when I was in a very rough place,” Vir tweeted.
Actors Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan were recently seen posing with Netflix Indian CEO Reed Hastings.

The deal covers several Shah Rukh’s films including Happy New Year, Dilwale and Om Shanti Om. This was the first kind of collaboration between Netflix and Shah Rukh’s Red Chillies Entertainment.
