Mumbai, July 19 -- Vir Das is all set to play a hacker in debutant director Harish Raut's next. A source close to the actor says, to prepare for his role, Vir will take coding lessons from IIT students.

"Vir will train for a month with students from IIT Bombay. He will learn coding from them. He wants to be proficient enough to portray the role of a hacker with authenticity," says the source. In fact, Vir will be seen doing some real coding on the computer in the film.

"The makers will soon finalise the group of IITians, who will teach him coding extensively without overburdening him with technical knowledge. Vir will start training with them soon," adds the source.

When contacted, Vir confirmed the news, and said, "I am going to spend some time with students from IIT Bombay. I want to project the same kind of discipline and mindset that the coders have. We are thinking of having a few students on the sets as well."
