Following his roles in films 'Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon' and 'Firangi,' comedian Kapil Sharma is set to entertain the audiences once more with a new film, produced by Applause Entertainment and Nandita Das Initiatives.
The film will also star Shahana Goswami. According to the press release, Kapil will portray a food delivery rider in Nandita Das' directorial.
Kapil expressed his excitement on working with Nandita,
I am very excited about this project, not because I am doing a film, but because I am doing Nandita Das' film, whom I have seen both as an actor and a director. She has a very distinct and deep way of looking at things and a keen eye for detailing. So my job as an actor is to just do what she tells me. Her work is very different from mine, and I am happy that the audience will get to see a new side of me.- Kapil Sharma
An artist is always thirsty to do something different! The people behind the project, Nandita Das and Sameer Nair, are both extremely passionate and good at what they make, so I am really excited to be doing this film.- Kapil Sharma
As per Nandita, “the film attempts to make visible what's hidden in plain sight."
She went on to say,
And for this, the cast and crew has serendipitously come together. One day, Kapil Sharma popped up on my screen! I hadn't seen his show, but I could see him wholly representing the 'common man', despite not being one anymore! I am certain he will surprise everyone, including himself, with his natural candidness.- Nandita Das
Applause Entertainment's CEO, Sameer Nair, also spoke about the project. He revealed,
Nandita first narrated this idea to us as a short. We loved it so much that we actively encouraged her to expand it into a full feature. And we are elated to say that the idea is blossoming into a wonderful film that captures the lives of the invisible, 'ordinary' people who actually keep this country and our economy running.- Nandita Das
The film is set in Bhubaneswar, Odisha, and will begin filming later this month.
