The movie is set against the backdrop of Chambal and Gwalior. Kangana Ranaut plays a dacoit-type feisty woman who is active on the local political scene. Vir plays a flirty character from Bihar. He tries to woo her with teddies, of all things.
'Revolver Rani' has the stand-up comedian playing the serious role of a complete lecher and meanie, who uses women to get what he wants and then dumps them like used tissues. Vir Das describes his character as “a complete degenerate” who is “ambitious, manipulative, and stops at nothing at all”.
“I play Rohan, a toy boy with a lot of negative shades. The role was exhausting, both physically and mentally,” Vir Das says.
