Yash Raj Films’ upcoming comedy film has replaced comedian Kapil Sharma with actor Reteish Deshmukh. The project has been titled Bank Chor.
The actor praises the team of Bank Chor and said; “Loved the script. Loved the character. Loved the team.”
“I have always liked to push the envelope with the choices I make. This film allows me to potentially rip it apart. Watch out there’s a new Bank Chor in town,” he added.
Reteish is riding high with the success of his recent film Ek Villain that also features Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor.
Ashish Patil, business and creative head, Youth Films, Brand Partnerships and Talent Management at Yash Raj Films, vouches for Riteish’s versatility.
Mr. Ashish told reporters; “From villainy to action in his upcoming Lai Bhaari, there’s nothing he can’t do! And with Bank Chor, Riteish is in a zone that’s a serious strength – comedy! He adds the scale, madness and weight that the project deserves.”
The audiences are in for one hell of a ride, he added.
A comic-caper, Bank Chor is about three morons trying to rob a bank. They choose the worst day possible for the heist and get caught in the crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt political leaders.
Mr. Ashish is producing Bank Chor and Bumpy is directing it. They will start shooting immediately as the plan is to release it in early 2015.
