Cast as the female lead of the film
Rhea Chakraborty has been announced as the female lead of Y-Films’ ‘Bank-Chor’. She has a cracker of a role in the film where she will be seen with Riteish Deshmukh for the first time. Rhea started her career as MTV’s youngest VJ, and then made her big screen debut in the sleeper hit of 2013, Mere Dad Ki Maruti. She was also seen opposite Ayushmann Khurrana in his single, O Heeriye. This young actor is all set to explode in Bollywood with an exciting line-up of films. Up next is Rohan Sippy’s Sonali Cable, in which she plays the lead role of Sonali. She will also be seen in UTV Spotboy’s much awaited, ‘Babbu Ki Jawani’. There are a couple of big announcements around the corner, one from Yash Raj Films itself. More on that later.
An excited Rhea added, “Bank Chor is a rollercoaster ride and I’m delighted to be on it. I’ve had a blast with the team on Mere Dad Ki Maruti and I’m sure this is only going to be bigger and better. Get ready for some LOLs!”
Speaking on the same, Ashish Patil, Business & Creative Head, Youth Films, Brand Partnerships & Talent Management at Yash Raj Films, "We needed someone with spunk, who could be cute and hot at the same time besides speak 2000 words per minute for this part. Rhea speaks 8000 words per minute in real life! She hit the ball out of the park on the other fronts as well and with her outrageous sense of humor she's gonna kill it!"
‘Bank-Chor’ is a comic-caper, that tells the story of 3 morons trying to rob a bank who pick the worst day possible when everything that can go wrong, goes wrong and how they’re inadvertently caught in the crossfire of cops, industrialists and corrupt netas. ‘Bank-Chor’ is directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil. More exciting announcements on the project in the pipeline, stay tuned!
