Firangi trailer: Kapil Sharma's new film is fresh departure from his debut

The trailer of comedian Kapil Sharma's long awaited film Firangi is out and it is nothing like his Bollywood debut, Abbas-Mustan's 2015 romantic comedy Kis Kisko Pyar Karoon. While Rajiev Dhingra's Firangi has both romance and comedy, it also has a plot.

Firangi is set during the British colonial rule in India and revolves around Kapil's character, who is of the opinion that the British Raj is of no harm. He goes about his daily life, unaware of the shackles that the British rule has imposed on him, his fellow countrymen and his motherland.

He finds himself introspecting only when he falls in love with Ishita Dutta's character but her father objects to their marriage owing to the perception that Kapil's character is a British empathiser. The tension at the macro level seeps into Sharma's personal life and he is left torn between his loyalty and love.

Firangi also stars Monica Gill,Edward Sonnenblick, Kumud Mishra, Rajesh Sharma, Inaamulhaq, Aanjjan Srivastav, Jameel Khan and Vishal O Sharma. It is produced by Kapil's K9 Films and is slated to release on 24 November, along with Suresh Triveni's slice-of-life entertainer Tumhari Sulu.
