First look of Zwigato: Kapil Sharma portrays a struggling food delivery worker in his upcoming flick

In his next film Zwigato, Kapil Sharma plays a conservative guy who would rather suffer financially than allow his wife to work.


The poster for Kapil Sharma’s forthcoming film, Zwigato, has been out. He is depicted as a food delivery guy. The film is directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Nandita Das and features Shahana Goswami as his wife. The 47th Toronto International Film Festival has released a new trailer from the film ahead of its worldwide launch next month.

“Applause Entertainment and Nandita Das Initiatives are proud to announce that our film Zwigato, written and directed by Nandita Das, starring Kapil Sharma and Shahana Goswami, will have its World premiere at the prestigious 47th Toronto International Film Festival [TIFF] 2022 in the ‘Contemporary World Cinema’ section,” Kapil wrote on Instagram.

“In the World Premiere of ZWIGATO, filmmaker @nanditadas focuses her sociopolitical gaze on the gig economy with this narrative about the trials and tribulations of a food app delivery driver,” the TIFF captioned a clip from the film. @KapilSharmaK9 and @shahanagoswami star. #TIFF22.”

Kapil is seen in the video repairing an electronic device in his room. His wife informs him of a new employment opportunity that needs her to work in the evening. She explains that she has already paid for her children’s school uniforms and that she needs extra money to manage the home due to an increase in house rent. Kapil mocks him by stating that she must leave by the time he returns home from work. He also requests that she return the school outfit and not complete the school form. Despite her efforts to persuade him, he urges her to stay at home and insists they would manage just fine as they did when he was unemployed for eight months.

Kapil took a break from his comedy programme, The Kapil Sharma Show, to film in Odisha.
