Comedian Kapil Sharma, who was slated to make his Bollywood debut with Yash Raj Films' "Bank Chor", is now out of the project, the production house revealed via an official statement Thursday. It is a mutual decision.
The film will now go on floor without Kapil, whose popularity soared high following the success of his stand-up comedy show "Comedy Nights With Kapil".
"We will look forward to working together in future when the time is right," Ashish Patil, business and creative head, Youth Films, Talent Management and Brand Partnerships at YRF, said in the statement.
Earlier, there was news that Kapil was caught in a quandary over how to balance his show and film. But it is not clear why Kapil is no longer a part of "Bank Chor", a comic-caper.
The film tells the story of three men trying to rob a bank, how they choose the wrong day for the robbery, and how they're inadvertently caught in the cross fire between cops, industrialists and corrupt politicians.
Produced by Patil, the project will be helmed by Bumpy.
