The talented actor of Bollywood, Ranvir Shorey, and Vir Das collaborate with each other for Netflix’s black comedy. The makers have finally unveiled the trailer of ‘Hasmukh’, and this web series will be a sure treat to netizens as everyone is following the coronavirus lockdown.

The trailer features an uneasy life of a stand-up comedian, Hasmukh Sudiya (portrayed by Vir Das) and his partner-in-crime buddy. Ranvir Shorey portrayed his onscreen friend, who discovers a secret behind Hasmukh’s success for being a comedian. Set in the backdrop serial killing and the life of a comedian, the web series takes us to a thriller journey.

Take a look at the trailer right here.

As per a report in Indian Express, Vir Das while talking about the web series said, “I am back on screen playing a strange and unusual character, so I am excited. He is super awkward, soft-spoken, always mild…until he murders or gets on stage. Stand-up comedians will relate to Hasmukh’s journey. Well, most of it at least. We are all looking for innovative ways to make people laugh, but this guy takes it to the next level.”

The makers also shared a press release talking about the show’s release during this moment of crisis all over the world. Here’s what the release says:

A Time For H A S M U K H

In current times, flashy, even pompous announcements & promotion campaigns of new films and shows, seem like a distant past. Somewhere, as a filmmaker, I feel relieved from the noisy pressure of this.

But it doesn’t escape me at what price this reset comes. As earnestly as we can, my team and I wish all of you good health and safety in these times. Let that be the only priority.

And in those moments, when you have the good fortune to slip away into the world of fiction we weave, do give a chance to a pretty unique show we are proud to bring to Netflix. Hasmukh trailer launches on April 3rd. The show hits your boxes on April 17th.

Thank You, Nikhil Gonsalves (our EMMAY directorial warrior), Vir Das & Weirdass, Ranvir Shorey and a stellar cast and crew. Props to our partners Applause, who stand by our madness and to Netflix – grateful
for the ride.
