Actor-comedian Kapil Sharma, who was quite kicked about his film debut with YRF’s venture 'Bank-Chor' and had even started preparing for the film by getting into shape, is now out of the film.
Sharma and YRF have decided to mutually part ways. The film will now go on floor without him.
With his exit, Sharma’s three-film deal with the company and his promotion through YRF’s Talent Management Wing has also been dissolved.
Ashish Patil, Business & Creative Head, Youth Films, Talent Management & Brand Partnerships at Yash Raj Films, however, stated, “There was no particular reason but we decided mutually, to take a break from this one. It had nothing to do with his not being happy with the script or anything of that sort but more in the larger interest of the project. Ours was a very peaceful and amicable parting. In fact we may do something else by the year-end. As for the replacement, we shall be announcing it soon.”
Bank-Chor is a comiccaper, that tells the story of three individuals trying to rob a bank, who pick the
worst day possible when everything goes wrong and they get inadvertently caught in the crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt netas. The film is directed by Bumpy who had earlier directed YRF’s Love Ka The End and produced by Patil. The makers will make an official announcement about the new cast soon.
