 The film’s highlights are Kapil’s self-deprecatory comments on his poor grasp over the English language.

In his feature film debut, Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon, Kapil Sharma played a man with three wives. It wasn’t quite a role close to his heart. In his second feature film, Firangi, which has been beleaguered by innumerable delays, Kapil almost plays a mirror-image of his own personality. Apparently, Kapil has been cast in the film as a small-town boy, who falls in love with an NRI girl, played by model Monica Gill.

The film’s highlights are Kapil’s self-deprecatory comments on his poor grasp over the English language. Says a source close to the project, “Kapil doesn’t get tired of poking fun at his poor command over the English language. In Firangi, he will tackle the Indian obsession with speaking and communicating in English, on why we, as an erstwhile British colony, continue to be servile to the English language.”

 

Kapil’s jokes about his weak command over English are well-known. Even on Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan, where interviews are conducted in English, Kapil preferred to converse in Hindi.
