The show is in the mystery genre and not much of the concept is known but Vir is all set to essay the lead in it. The show will be produced by Weirdass Comedy and Emmay Entertainment. 

The source adds, “It’s a dark comedy, but will show a very real, gritty world too. Currently Vir and Nikhil's team are working on the script and the shooting for the series will start this September.”

Speaking about it, Vir said, “I had developed a concept and worked around the script. And it was something I wanted to work with someone who would understand the content of it and thus the idea to work with Nikhil came about. When I told him about it, he was excited and we had an instant collaboration. It's a dark comedy. Having a certain element of thrill we can't reveal the concept per say. We intend to have it as a 10 part series.”
