In his second film ‘Firangi’, Kapil Sharma is taking a departure from comedy into the drama realm. The actor has said, however, that he is not afraid of being typecast as a comedian.
“Every actor has their own speciality. I will start laughing if I try to do romantic scenes like Shah Rukh Khan or stunts like Akshay Kumar. I like making people laugh and I take the tag of comedian seriously,” said Sharma, talking to Hindustan Times.
Sharma revealed a little about the story of ‘Firangi’, “I am playing an underdog character Monga who falls in love with a girl. Unemployed youths have a tendency to fall in love anyway, but his marriage seems difficult because he doesn’t do anything. He gets a job with the British army by fluke, but the girl’s family is not ready to accept Monga because he is serving the enemy”.
The film is being directed by Rajiev Dhingra and will release on 1st December.
