Actor-comedian Vir Das, who will be seen playing a Punjabi engineer in the film “31st October”, has shared his “something new” look from the Shivaji Lotan Patil directorial.
He had earlier shared that he had to work hard for achieving the right look for his character in the film, and that he had to put on weight to look like a healthy Punjabi.
Vir tweeted a photograph in which he is seen sporting a Sikh look. He can be seen donning a light blue turban and a long salt and pepper beard.
“Here’s something new! Presenting Devender Singh from @31stOctFilm. My next role/film. Survivor of the 1984 violence,” Vir captioned the image which he shared on Saturday.
