Nikkhil Advani whose next production Lucknow Central that features Farhan Akhtar and Diana Penty in leading roles is expected to hit the marquee later this year, has now teamed up with actor-comedian Vir Das for a yet-untitled show. The 10-part dark comedy series which will be written by Vir and Nikkhil, marks the former’s debut as a co-producer and will also feature him.

“I had developed a concept which had an element of satire and thrill and worked around a unique script expecting to collaborate with someone who would understand and enjoy my content. I thought about Nikkhil first and he was immediately excited and agreed to co-produce the show,” Vir told Mirror, adding that the duo plan to begin prep in August and jump into shooting full-swing from September. “We will be filming entirely in Mumbai and are currently in the process of registering the title.”

Vir, who recently returned from a stand-up world tour, is now looking to get back to Bollywood as a co-producer and actor too. “I’m excited about interesting movies and concepts coming up soon,” he signs off.
