In a massive announcement, Vivek Oberoi has just been confirmed to join the lead cast of YRF’s Bank Chor. He returns to Yash Raj Films 12 years after his super-successful last outing with them, Shaad Ali’s Saathiya. Vivek has been on a roll with two back to back blockbusters, Krrish 3 & Grand Masti and will be seen in a completely different role as a CBI Officer who turns the bank-chors lives upside down. Bank Chor is scheduled to go on the floors immediately and is planned for an early 2015 release.
Added Vivek, “I’m really happy to be back in the Yash Raj family again, truly glad Adi thought of me for this role. 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!”
Speaking on the same, Ashish Patil, Business & Creative Head, Youth Films, Brand Partnerships & Talent Management at Yash Raj Films, “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 that’s signature rockstar badass Vivek, he’s going to set the screen on fire. We’re thrilled to welcome him to the party!”
Vivek Oberoi goes head on against Riteish Deshmukh who leads the gang of bank-chors. The two actors have been part of the super successful franchise Grand Masti. However, in this film, they will share an entirely different chemistry with Vivek making life miserable for the bank-chors. Rhea Chakraborty, previously seen in Mere Dad Ki Maruti, plays the female lead in this mad riot.
Bank-Chor is a comic-caper, that tells the story of 3 morons trying to rob a bank who pick the worst day possible when everything that can go wrong, goes wrong and how they’re inadvertently caught in the crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt netas. And just when you think things can’t get any worse, in comes a CBI officer who turns their lives into a living hell! Bank-Chor is directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil.
More exciting announcements on the project in the pipeline, stay tuned for more!
