Actor-comedian Vir Das who features in 31st Octobernbsp;and a short film titled Raakh says he is glad some intense roles are coming his way rather than the usual comical roles that he gets.

The first look of Raakh writer-director Milap Zaveri’s maiden production venture was released on October 11. It showed Vir in a different kind of role in a brooding intense look along with actors Richa Chadha and Shamas Randhawa.

quot;Doing ‘Raakh’ was challenging as an actor. Not because I found the role tough. It was just the sheer expectation to do something new for the audience that adds the rightful pressurequot; Vir said in a statement.

quot;I have always been keen in dramatics since I was a kid and I’m happy that such roles are coming my way and filmmakers do accept to see me beyond a comedianquot; he added.

Raakhnbsp;will be out on November 7.
