In his feature-film debut Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon, Kapil Sharma played a man with three wives. Not quite a role close to his heart.
In his second feature film Firangi which has been beleaguered by innumerable delays, Kapil almost plays a mirror-image of his own personality .Apparently Kapil is cast in the film as a small-town boy who falls in love with an NRI girl played by model Monica Gill.
The film’s highlight are Kapil’s self-deprecatory comments on his poor grasp over the English language.
Says a source close to the project, “Kapil doesn’t tire of poking fun at his poor command of the English language.In Firangi he will tackle the Indian obsession with speaking and communicating in English, on why we as a erstwhile British Colony continue to be servile to the English language.”
Kapil’s jokes about his weak command of the English language is well known. Even on the Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan where interviews are conducted in English, Kapil preferred to converse in Hindi.
