2nd Mar, 2023

Kapil Sharma, a stand-up comedian and actor, is getting ready for the debut of his new movie Zwigato, which also stars Shahana Goswami. On March 1st, the movie's trailer was unveiled, and Kapil and Shahana travelled to Mumbai for the ceremony. Kapil portrays Manas, a delivery agent in Zwigato, and Shahana plays his wife. At the unveiling of the trailer, Kapil Sharma discussed the movie, the message it conveys, and how he feels he did a decent job in the pic. In addition, director Nandita Das added that she would not have cast Shah Rukh Khan even if he had consented to star in the movie.

During the media chat, Kapil revealed how he related with the film's story. He disclosed the media, “I used to work at Coca-Cola. We all do small jobs here and there when we first come to Mumbai. The product was transported in trucks. There were no apps back then. But, when Nandita ma'am came to me and told me what all difficulties delivery guys face, I could relate to that story a lot.”

Further speaking about Nandita’s choice to cast him for the movie, Kapil revealed ‘I asked her, 'Why me?' I didn't know whether to take her answer as a compliment or an insult. She responded, 'Even if global star Shah Rukh Khan would have agreed to do the film, I'd have not taken him, but chosen you because you have such a common face, it can fit anywhere in a crowd.’
