After making his debut with the 2015 film Kis Kisko Pyaar Karu, Kapil Sharma is back with another big screen outing, Rajiv Dhingra Firangi. Firangi is a period drama set in British-ruled India, and fans are excited to see their favourite comedian do something different.
At a time when the freedom movement was gaining momentum in India, Kapil’s character Manga believes that the British are of no harm. In fact, he even gets employment with the British, thanks to his unique talent of curing the Britishers’ back pain with a swift kick.
All is hunky-dory, till he falls in love with a local beauty (played by Ishita Dutta). The girl’s family is vehemently opposed to their match because they see Manga as “angrez ka naukar”. How Kapil’s character fights for his love forms the rest of the plot.
Firangi, which marks Kapil Sharma’s foray into production, will hit the theatres on November 24.
The last few months have been tough on the comedian with many of his show’s cast members leaving him after a mid-air spat with fellow comedian Sunil Grover and his show going off air after speculation that he forced many of India’s top stars to wait. The show finally went off air last month but is expected to return to television screens. Kapil has said it was due to his ill health.
