Kapil Sharma made his debut in the Hindi film industry with Rajiv Dhingra’s historical-drama, Firangi. In the flick, he was seen playing the character who always wished to turn out to be a policeman but remained unsuccessful to do so each and every time he made a try for it.
This time, Rajiv Dhingra will shortly be seen joining hands with the comedian’s The Kapil Sharma Show co-actor Chandan Prabhakar for his next Punjabi movie. The film will be named ‘Hotel Pyasa’ and it is being produced under the banners of Rajiv, Nitin Keni, Naveen Chandra and Shanti Bhushan Roy. It will boast of Chandan Prabhakar as the lead antagonist.
While making the confirmation about the news, Dhingra stated, “Chandan plays a comic villain in the film, while Binnu Dhillon plays the main lead. Chandan plays a water mafia, who carries a group of hooligans with him all the time. He too was looking to play a unique character for a while now, and really liked this one. We start filming for it soon, and are currently in the process of finalizing the director.”
“We are from the same city and the same school. Kapil and I were in 9 A, while Chandan was in 9 B. Then we were together in the same college, did theatre together, and later even got associated with The Great Indian Laughter Challenge. So we have always been a part of one group,” added Rajiv.
For the unversed, Kapil, Rajiv and Chandan have been besties from the 9th standard.
In addition, The Kapil Sharma Show has been on hold for some time as Kapil is spending most of his time with his newly born baby.
