Remember Shahid Kapoor doing con jobs in Vishal Bhardwaj’s hit “Kaminey”? The actor does the same, but in a more sophisticated avatar, in “Badmaash Company” releasing Friday.
Produced and distributed by Yash Raj Films, the movie is actor Parmeet Sethi’s directorial debut. Shahid has teamed up with Anushka Sharma in the film that also stars comedian Vir Das and reality show star Chang.
Describing the film, Shahid said: “There are very interesting characters, extremely fresh dialogues, con jobs which I have not seen in any other film, but yet very easy to understand. It’s not complicated at all. It’s a very fun film and there was no reason why I shouldn’t be doing it.”
Set in the Bombay of 1990s, “Badmaash Company” is about four youngsters who come together to start a business.
What makes their venture a stupendous success is that they find a way to beat the system and soon become the undisputed kings in their business. Living the life of champagne wishes and caviar dreams, the four realise that to make a business successful they don’t need big money but a big idea.
The songs of the movie have already become a hit.
