MUMBAI: Stand-up comedian and actor Vir Das has treated us all by releasing a new comedy series "Bright Side With Vir Das" amidst the 21-day lockdown to battle the deadly COVID-19 virus. He revealed this is his way of adding some laughs into the lives of the people.

Focusing on the pros of being stuck at home, the new series sees Vir discussing every common thing from balconies to our warped political allegiances and how irrelevant it's become now.

Taking the darkest thoughts which are manifesting in people's heads and turning them into something funny, he attempts to diffuse the tension. 

"Staying reception for the past couple of days has been testing for everybody. This is often my way of adding some laughs into their lives. Laughter exposes people to hope and that is what we'd like during this phase," Vir said.

"I have taken everything I even have been hearing lately - from nanis and dadis claiming that Coronavirus may be a result of ya not following their 'nuskas' (tips) to people telling us how we are quarantining comfortably when many within the country can't. It's our plan to put some perspective in people on how much better we've had it, and in a funny fashion tell them to practice social distancing, stay home, be safe. As for the emotional distress, let's laugh a little - shall we?" he added.
