Speaking about Coat, Vivaan said, “This film was special in terms of me being able to stretch my acting abilities and play a character who was completely outside the realm of my experience. When producer Kumar Abhishek and director Akshay Diti narrated me the story I was very much convinced and said yes to it. It was a lovely and amazing experience working with them and the whole crew.”
Coat is expected to release by the end of this year. Vivaan is a part of Mira Nair’s upcoming BBC series, A Suitable Boy.
