The Krrish 3 actor will be working with YRF after 12 years, we hear
A little birdie tells us that Vivek Oberoi has been confirmed to join the cast of Bank Chor. Not so long time ago, the film was in the news as Kapil Sharma was out of the movie and soon, Riteish Deshmukh was roped in. Vivek has now joined his Grand Masti partner for Bank Chor. What more, he has returned to YRF after 12 years, his last film under their banner was Saathiya.
Ashish Patil, Business & Creative Head, Youth Films, Brand Partnerships & Talent Management at Yash Raj Films confirmed the news, said, “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!”
The two Grand Masti actors will be up against each other in Bank Chor, as Vivek plays a CBI officer in the film and Riteish plays the leader of the gang of Bank Chors. Rhea Chakraborty, who was seen in Mere Dad Ki Maruti, plays the female lead in this mad riot. Bank Chor is a comic caper, which tells the story of three morons, who try to rob a bank and pick the worst day possible and everything goes wrong. They get caught in the crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt netas. And just when you think things can’t get worse, enters a CBI officer (Vivek Oberoi) who turns their lives into a living hell.
Bank Chor will go on floors immediately as it’s slated for an early 2015 release.
