Vivek Oberoi had last worked with Yash Raj Films in the beginning of his career, with Shaad Ali۪s Saathiya۪ (2002) opposite Rani Mukerji. It has now been announced that Oberoi is making a return to the production house after a gap of 12 years with Y Films۪ Bank Chor۪.
Ashish Patil, one of YRF۪s vice presidents and producer of Bank Chor۪, confirmed the news on Twitter, saying, The game just got bigger. Vivek Oberoi joins the cast of Bank Chor۪ to bajao the gang. Welcome to the party Vivek!
Interestingly, the last film YRF offered Oberoi was Kunal Kohli۪s Hum Tum۪ (2004). However, the actor rejected the film, later citing his then-girlfriend as the reason due to her rivalry with the film’s leading lady, Rani Mukerji.
Bank Chor۪, which was earlier to mark the debut of comedian Kapil Sharma, will now see Riteish Deshmukh in the lead role, along with Vivek Oberoi and Rhea Chakraborty. The film is set to release on 6th March 2015.
