'Zwigato': Shahana Goswami had her doubts about Kapil Sharma's acting skills

When Nandita Das first told Shahana Goswami about Kapil Sharma, she was like, ‘Kapil?’, but then she thought that it was a good idea.

Comedian-actor Kapil Sharma is all set to make a comeback to the big screen with Nandita Das’ 'Zwigato', along with Shahana Goswami. In a recent interview, Shahana, who plays the role of Kapil's wife in the film, revealed that she wasn’t sure about his acting skills before working with him.

Speaking with Indian Express, Shahana said, 'I’ve worked with Nandita Das before on 'Firaaq'. 'Zwigato' is my second innings with her, my first with Kapil (Sharma). With Nandita, there is a very easy flow that I have. We are friends and I love working with her as an actor. She teaches me a lot as a director. With Kapil, it was so effortless. I didn’t know how he’d be. He’s such a big star. I didn’t know if he’d be able to act. Nandita told me that he’s playing this character in Zwigato, he’d be able to do it.'

She added that when Nandita first told her about Kapil, she was like, ‘Kapil?’, but then she thought that it was a good idea. She didn’t know him and had not even seen his show but when she met him, she was convinced that he’ll nail it because he’s a very real person.

In 'Zwigato', Kapil portrays the role of a guy who lost his job as a factory floor manager and later joins a food delivery service company as a delivery guy. The film follows his life and the tough situations he faces at work.

‘Zwigato’ was screened at Toronto International Film Festival and at Busan International Film Festival this year. The film is yet to release in India.

Earlier, Kapil talked about the film and revealed why he signed up for an independent film. He said that he has nothing to lose even if the film fails to impress the audience. On the other hand, the makers are yet to finalize a release date of ‘Zwigato’.
