I enjoy making tasks difficult for myself: Vir Das

Mumbai: Actor-comedian Vir Das, who has received the International Emmy nomination for his streaming comedy special Landing, has said that he loves to ‘scare’ himself with regards to his work and that he really enjoys the process to work on something which is ‘impossible’.

And it’s this perspective of him towards his work that has brought him international recognition.

Talking in the light of his nomination, Vir, who also actively takes up acting gigs and is currently busy directing a project, said that he enjoys making the tasks difficult for himself.
Furnishing the reason behind the same, he said: “I like to remove the trappings of comfort from my shows. I could have done this comedy special at a huge stadium with numerous cameras focusing on me from different angles but I wanted to keep it simple and Netflix was gracious enough to agree to that.”

He further mentioned: “In this special there’s no set, there’s just one stool. There’s no production as such, there’s only some sand on the floor, there’s not even any enhanced lighting. In such a case, the special rides just on the words that come out of the comedian’s mouth and the content. So, I like to scare myself in that sense.”
Vir Das’s ‘Landing’ is streaming on Netflix.
