Two of the lead actors of Delhi Belly (2011), Imran Khan and Vir Das, will team up for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards India (VMAI) on March 23.
A source says, “MTV has roped in Bollywood heartthrob Imran Khan and ace comedian Vir Das to host the upcoming awards. The duo that left the
audiences in splits with their histrionics in Delhi Belly, make for great hosts. The organisers thought that it would be perfect to have them anchor the first Indian edition of the awards.” Apparently, what helped also was the fact that the two have a good record of playing hosts in the past.
The source says, “Imran has hosted award ceremonies and people have loved him. Vir, as everyone knows, is a stand-up comic and has been a host for a while. Besides, the channel’s target audience is the youth and both of them have a strong appeal amongst youngsters.”
