Revisiting Comedian Kapil Sharma's Underrated Acting Vehicle On His Birthday

In Applause Entertainment’s underrated under-seen slice-of-life mellow drama Zwigato directed by Nandita Das, stand-up comic Kapil Sharma proved that even funny men have a tragic inner core. Touching without screaming, moving without manipulating, Kapil portrayed the food-delivery guy as someone we know. Someone we never give a second glance to. Kapil was THAT invisible.
碍补辫颈濒’蝉 Zwigato delivery boy delivers a performance that is keenly observant of reality: the languorous paunchy body language, the endless rounds on two-wheelers, handling difficult insulting customers at work, an invalid mother and two children at home…Kapil brings the entire force of destiny down on his character’s shoulder without making him a crybaby.
Kapil Sharma went full-throttle to prepare for his part as a delivery in Bhubaneswar in Nandita Das’s elegiacal Zwigato. Apparently, Nandita initially wanted Nawazuddin Siddiqui to play the lead.
Kapil admits this to be true. “I’ve also been told that Nawaz Bhai was Nandita Ma’am’s first choice. They had worked together in both her earlier directorials Firaaq and Manto. But this time Nawaaz bhai had some date issues. I am glad . Otherwise I’d have missed the opportunity of a lifetime.”
He also admits there is the novelty factor in casting Kapil. “Nawaz Bhai in a realistic role is so obvious. Whereas I was unexpected. Log sochte honge Nandita Ma’am ko kya ho gaya. Why Kapil? I hope the film will justify my presence.”
In fact Kapil Sharma has given a performance simmering with wounded pride. It is a thoroughly credible performance.
Says Kapil, “Playing a delivery boy came very naturally to me. I know this character. I’ve lived life on the fringes, not as a delivery boy.Lekin maine bhi chote chote kaam kiye hain. Before I came to television, I did small jobs. Even the environment in the delivery boy’s house is familiar to me. A large joint family all sleeping in one room. Yeh duniya dekhi hui hai maine.”
