Kapil Sharma has just signed a three film deal with Yash Raj Films and debuts in a film titled Bank Chor under their Youth Films Division, Y-Films. Kapil has also signed on to Yash Raj Films Talent Management Wing that handles celebrity endorsements and films.
Bank Chor is a comic caper, that tells the story of three 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 politicians. Bank Chor is directed by Bumpy and goes on the floors in April 2014.
A very excited Kapil confirmed the news and stated, “It’s a privilege and 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 have already started working on the nuances of the character. I have done serious theatre for years before comedy. Finally with Yash Raj Films vision, I’ll get to do this again after a twelve year break and this script has equal scope of comedy. It’s sure to surprise my fans.”
Kapil joins the likes of Rani Mukerji, Anushka Sharma, Ranveer Singh, Parineeti Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, Ayushmann Khurrana, Sushant Singh Rajput, Saqib Saleem, Rhea Chakraborty, Vaani Kapoor, Saba Azad in the Yash Raj Films Talent Management Wing.
“Kapil is one of the most exciting names in entertainment right now. He opens up a whole new space of films and brands 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.” stated Ashish Patil, Business and Creative Head, Youth Films, Talent Management And Brand Partnerships at Yash Raj Films.
Here’s wishing Kapil Sharma all the very best.
