Kapil Sharma is definitely riding high on success these days! The actor has just signed a 3-film contract with Yash Raj Films and will soon debut in a film titled Bank-Chor under their Youth Films Division, Y-Films.
Kapil said in an official statement, “It’s a privilege & a dream to be part of the YRF family and have my launch with their Youth Films Studio, Y-Films. The script is the most exciting part since it’s the kind of role that’s very unlike the stereotype of a comedian or what people could typecast me as. As an actor it’s challenging and I’m so excited that I’ve already started working on the nuances of the character. I’ve always loved & watched thrillers and this is a thriller comedy so even better. I’ve done serious theatre for years before comedy. Finally with YRF’s vision, I’ll get to do this again after a 12-year break and this script has equal scope of comedy. It’s sure to surprise my fans!”
Adds Ashish Patil, Business & Creative Head, Youth Films, Talent Management & Brand Partnerships at Yash Raj Films, “Kapil is one of the most exciting names in entertainment right now. He opens up a whole new space of films, brands & more for us. And audiences are going to get to see a whole new side of him in Bank-Chor. We’re thrilled to welcome him into the YRF jungle!”
Bank-Chor is a comic-caper, that tells the story of 3 morons trying to rob a bank who pick the worst day possible when everything that can go wrong, goes wrong and how they’re inadvertently caught in the crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt netas. Bank-Chor is directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil and goes on the floors in April this year.
