Riteish, 36, has done a number of comedy films such as ‘Grand Masti’, ‘Kya Super Cool Hai Hum’, ‘Housefull’ and ‘Humshakals’.He earned critical acclaim for his villainous turn recently in ‘Ek Villain’.
“Loved the script. Loved the character. Loved the team. I’ve always liked to push the envelope with the choices I make. This film allows me to potentially rip it apart. Watch out there is a new ‘Bank-Chor’ in town,” Riteish said in a statement.
“Riteish is one of the most exciting actors of today. From villainy to action in his upcoming ‘Lai Bhaari’, there is
nothing he can’t do! And with ‘Bank Chor’, Riteish is in a zone that is a serious strength – comedy! He adds the scale, madness and weight that this project deserves. The audiences are in for one hell of a ride now,” said Ashish Patil, Business & Creative Head, Youth Films.
‘Bank-Chor’ is a comic-caper, that tells the story of three people trying to rob a bank ,who pick the worst day
possible when everything that can go wrong, goes wrong and how they are inadvertently caught in the crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt leaders.
‘Bank-Chor’ will be directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil.
