Actress Soha Ali Khan says “31st October” will serve to break the stereotypical image of a comedian that her co-star Vir Das is trapped in.
“It was great working with him (Vir Das). I have known him since before. I have seen his performances. Everyone knows him as a comic actor, but I think this film is important for him because it breaks that stereotype,” Soha said here.
“31st October” is based on the aftermath of Indira Gandhi’s assassination and its repercussions. Soha and Vir essay a Sikh couple in the movie, which will hit the screens on October 7.
Talking about Vir’s character, Soha said: “Even though his character is very genial, what happens to him is serious. So it’s nice to see the characterisation of someone who is fun loving and happy suddenly face these situations and changes them.”
