Nandita Unveiled The Trailer Of The Upcoming Movie “Zwigato”
Filmmaker and actor Nandita Das and comedian-turned-actor Kapil Sharma launched the trailer of ‘Zwigito’ at an event in Mumbai on March 1, 2023. At the trailer launch event, Kapil disclosed why Nandita chose him for the film. He said that Nandita once told him even if Shah Rukh Khan had agreed to the film, she won’t take him because it requires a common face that could fit in anywhere in the crowd.
The film portrays the life of a food delivery agent and the struggles he faces on a daily basis. Kapil Sharma played the role of a food delivery agent, and Shahana Goswami played the role of his wife. The film also stars Sayani Gupta and Gul Panag in special roles. Most of the part in the movie was shot and set in Bhubaneswar, the Capital city of Odisha.
Kapil breaks ties with his comic image for this. At the trailer launch event, he shared that he could relate to his character as he used to work at Coca-Cola. When he came to Mumbai for the first time, he did odd jobs here and there. The product was transported in trucks. There were no apps then. So when Nandita told him about the hardships faced by the delivery men, he could relate his past to that story a lot.
In December 2022, the film was screened at the International Film Festival of Kerala (IFFK). It was world premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Its Asian premiere was held at the Busan International Film Festival. It is scheduled to release across India on March 17.
