“Loved the script. Loved the character. Loved the team,” Riteish, who is riding high on the success of “Ek Villain”, said in a statement.
“I’ve always liked to push the envelope with the choices I make. This film allows me to potentially rip it apart. Watch out there’s a new Bank-Chor in town,” added the actor.
Ashish Patil, business and creative head, Youth Films, Brand Partnerships and Talent Management at Yash Raj Films, vouches for Riteish’s versatility.
“From villainy to action in his upcoming ‘Lai Bhaari’, there’s nothing he can’t do! And with ‘Bank Chor’, Riteish is in a zone that’s a serious strength – comedy! He adds the scale, madness and weight that the project deserves,” said Patil.
The audiences are in for one hell of a ride, he added.
