Actor Vivek Oberoi will play the role of a CBI officer in Yash Raj Films’ (YRF) upcoming movie ‘Bank Chor’. With this film, Vivek returns to YRF after 12 years, post his successful last outing with them in Shaad Ali’s ‘Saathiya’. “The game just got bigger with Vivek hitting the ‘Bank Chor’ crime scene. Vivek brings his A-Game to whatever he does, and with this character…he is going to set the screen on fire. We are thrilled to welcome him,” YRF’s business and creative head for youth films, brand partnerships and talent management, Ashish Patil said in a statement.
‘Bank-Chor’ is a comic-caper that tells the story of three morons trying to rob a bank who pick the worst day possible when everything goes wrong. The film is about how they are inadvertently caught in the crossfire of policemen, industrialists, corrupt politicians, and a CBI officer who makes their lives difficult. In the film, Vivek is pitted against actor Riteish Deshmukh, who leads the gang of bank thieves. Vivek and Riteish, who have been part of successful franchise ‘Grand Masti’, will share a different chemistry in this film.
Newcomer Rhea Chakraborty, previously seen in ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’, plays the female lead in the film. Directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil, ‘Bank Chor’ is scheduled to go on the floors immediately and is planned for an early 2015 release.
WILL ‘BANK CHOR’ STEAL A MILLION HEARTS?
Actor Vivek Oberoi will join the cast of Yash Raj Films’ ‘Bank Chor;, marking his comeback to the banner after 12 years. His last film for the banner was the 2002 hit ‘Saathiya’. The actor, who recently played a villain in ‘Krrish 3’, will play a CBI officer who turns the bank robbers’ lives upside down in the film which also stars Rhea Chakraborty and Riteish Deshmukh. “I’m really happy to be back in the Yash Raj family again. Working with my buddy Riteish is always a pleasure, hope we bring our crazy chemistry to this one too! Here’s hoping our entire team of ‘Bank Chor’ steals a million hearts!” Vivek said in a statement. Vivek and Riteish had earlier teamed up for the hit adult comedies ‘Masti’ and ‘Grand Masti’. Ashish Patil, business and creative head, Youth Films, Brand Partnerships and Talent Management at Yash Raj Films, believes that Vivek will “set the screen on fire”.
