Apna desi munda Kapil Sharma, whose film Firangi is set to release on December 1, could soon be seen working with some Firangis, for real. Though still under wraps, India’s famous comedian may work in a Hollywood series starring opposite another Hollywood actor. The series will be produced by Big Mama Works and could be titled Comedy Curry.
Firangi director Rajiv Dhingra told Zoom, "It's an internal baat, Kapil has received an offer from Hollywood. A company called Bad Mamas made a series and they want to make a Hollywood series with Kapil, with one Hollywood star and one Indian star, which will be apt for both the countries."
Kapil himself has confirmed that there are talks taking place, however, only through the telephone. "I'll let everyone know once it's finalized. I have received a script from the west and they (makers) are very popular Big Mama Works. And I'll definitely go there and meet them once since nothing major can be discussed over a telephonic conversation. But it'll be a good thing if it materializes," the comedian said. The creative director of The Kapil Sharma Show, Rajiv Dhingra, added, "It's a step ahead for Kapil too. Their concept is very nice."With regards to his local assignments, Kapil’s film Firangi is a period drama comedy that also stars Ishita Dutta and Monica Gill in the lead roles. The film, which was earlier slated to release on November 24, will now hit the theaters on December 1. The makers were quick to change the release date after Padmavati’s release which was set to release on the day has been postponed indefinitely.
