Firangi, Kapil Sharma’s second tryst with Bollywood, hits screens today. This may be only his second feature film but Kapil is a well-known face in the entertainment industry, owing to his stints with television shows like Comedy Nights with Kapil and The Kapil Sharma Show. He even tasted success with his last film, Kis Kis Ko Pyaar Karun, but the question remains if Kapil’s fanbase remains intact even after him being dogged down in numerous controversies.
The first reason for giving Firangi a watch is definitely Kapil Sharma himself. He may not be in his form right now, but just a year down the lane, Kapil was one of the highest paid actors not just in television world, but also in the league of Bollywood celebrities. His comic timing is spot-on and Firangi maybe just what Kapil Sharma needs to win his loyal fans back.
It is true that Bollywood has already seen a number of films on pre-independence era but the turning point for Firangi is that it brings in a comic perspective to the entire thing. And with King of Comedy Kapil Sharma in the film, fans are already in splits after watching the trailer.
