Kapil Sharma’s upcoming film ‘Firangi’ is nearing to its release later this month and while the film has a pre-independence backdrop, its not a typical drama, according to the comedian.
Talking to Times Of India, Sharma said, “We tried to make a light-hearted movie. You’ll see different flavours in the movie. It has romance, fun, comedy, emotion and action too. All the previous period movies have always shown all the sad things. But we wanted to show a lighter side of that period because at time too people were living normal lives. But, it also has a sense of patriotism too. It is a family entertainer.”
Elaborating on his character, Sharma said, “He just wants to work for his family. Then he falls in love with a girl and understands that if he wants to be with her, he needs to work and finally gets a job with the britishers. But then he gets to know that his grandfather doesn’t like anyone or anything, who or which, is related with Britishers. So my character is trapped.”
‘Firangi’ releases on 24th November 2017.
