It’s homecoming for Vivek Oberoi, as he returns to the coveted YRF banner after long 12 years, post the successful outing SAATHIYA, with upcoming film BANK CHOR. The film also stars Riteish Deshmukh alongside.
“It’s a great feeling to be working with Yash Raj again. They are a phenomenal organization. I was very touched when Adi (Aditya Chopra) called up and asked to comeback for BANK CHOR. He said, ‘I can think of only you’. So it made me feel extremely proud and even happier as it’s like a double celebration with Riteish Deshmukh. It’s like homecoming for us. It’s great going back to the studio meeting old friends and chatting with them. If you look at my career, I have mostly worked with everyone more than once. So this was something which was pending for so many years. I am very happy that it happened,” says the actor.
While Vivek and Riteish worked together in the past in the films like MASTI and GRAND MASTI as buddies, in BANK CHOR Vivek, who plays a CBI, will take on chor Riteish.
“Riteish’s family to me and we have had a 100 percent track record. I think he will be phenomenal as BANK CHOR. I am going to play CBI officer who’s going to bajaao his band. We are surely going to have loads of fun,” adds the actor.
Directed by Bumpy and produced by Ashish Patil, BANK CHOR also stars Rhea Chakraborty as the female lead in this comic caper.
