Our patrons will find it hard to find a connection between Yash Raj's latest release, BADMAASH COMPANY, and Aamir Khan's Abhinay Deo directed DELHI BELLY. So, the success of BADMAASH COMPANY proving to be good for DELHI BELLY will seem a far fetched idea to most!
However, the truth is that the Parmeet Sethi directed BADMAASH COMPANY, starring the 'still' teenage heartthrob Shahid Kapoor and the RAB NE... girl Anushka Sharma will prove to be beneficial for DELHI BELLY in the long run, as it is also the successful debut of popular stand up comedian Vir Das, who also essays a very important role in DELHI BELLY.
Though the highly talented and versatile Vir Das is in a league of his own, not many know that his shows run to packed houses in big cities although the ordinary Hindi film audience is not familiar with this power house of talent, so BADMAASH COMPANY has in a way introduced him successfully to a hitherto unknown territory.
The critics as well as the audience are full of praise for Vir and we are pretty sure that the success of BADMAASH COMPANY will definitely auger well for DELHI BELLY and Das would prove to be as much of an entertainer in DELHI BELLY as he is in BADMAASH COMPANY, in fact even more as this time he will have the Aamir Khan stamp of quality in his performance.
