In February, Kapil announced his project, which will be produced by Applause Entertainment and Nandita Das.
“Applause Entertainment & Nandita Das Initiatives are thrilled to present the most exciting collaboration of the year. Writer-Director-Producer Nandita Das teams up with Kapil Sharma in a never seen before avatar of a food delivery rider. Kapil will be joined by Shahana Goswami as the female lead. Filming soon! Need your blessings,” the post read.
In a statement, Nandita said she saw that Kapil could represent the ‘common man.’
“The film attempts to make visible what’s hidden in plain sight. 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. I am looking forward to working again with Shahana, an amazing actor and person. And in Sameer (Nair), have found a producing partner,” she said.
Kapil, who hosts The Kapil Sharma Show on Sony TV, marked his acting debut with 2015 release Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. Later, he starred and produced 2017 film titled Firangi. The Nandita Das movie marks his return to the silver screen.
