Kapil Sharma is a name to reckon with in the comedy department. His Television return with the new season of The Kapil Sharma Show was eagerly awaited and a big success. The Firangi actor is now all set to get back into acting with Nandita Das’s upcoming film. He will play the role of a food delivery rider. The film also stars Bombay Begums actress Shahana Goswami who plays his wife. 


The yet to be titled film is set is Bhubaneswar, Odisha and is produced by Applause Entertainment and Nandita Das Initiatives. Speaking of the film, director-writer-producer Das said, “The film attempts to make visible what's hidden in plain sight. And for this, the cast and crew have 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. I am looking forward to working again with Shahana, an amazing actor and person. And in Sameer (Nair), I have found a true producing partner.” 


Kapil Sharma stated, “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. 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.”


Goswami said, “After Firaaq, I couldn't be happier to finally be on an adventure with Nandita again. I'm excited to work with Kapil as I know he will bring a certain naturalness and ease to this character. I'm thankful to Applause for supporting and nurturing Nandita's vision and grateful to them for making me a part of this journey. I'm looking forward to this wonderful creative collaboration with so many extremely talented people in the crew, with my dear Nandita as our captain and guide.” Filming is expected to begin in March 2022.
